The Usual Hypocrisy

Last year, Steinbrenner got A-Rod and it was "He always does what it takes. He'll always spend the money. He'll never skimp because winning is too important to the great George Steinbrenner."

This year, he passes on Beltran, and all I'm hearing is "He decided he was at his limit, hey, I don't blame him."

That really bugs me. I'd like to hear these reporters say "We were dead wrong when we said he always spends what's necessary to have his team win. I guess money is more important than winning to George Steinbrenner."

Or better yet, "Maybe George is learning from the teams that really win to actually save a little bit of money instead of spending haphazardly."

Meanwhile, I'm still trying to get my hands on Opening Day tickets. Chan asked me what my limit was, and I just said, "I will be at that game." I can't wait to see the champs invade the Bronx.

Right on. I thought I was the only one to have noticed ...
