Yankees Will be Old

The New York Yankees have a problem. They don't notice it, fans don't notice it, players don't notice it. They are old. They finally made a big stride towards getting younger this year by signing CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett, and Mark Teixeira.

Lets look at their contracts.

MARK TEIXEIRA: Signed until age 36 (with no trade clause)
CC SABATHIA: Signed until age 35
A.J. BURNETT: Signed until age 36

Has baseball come to the point where teams have to spend $20 million on 35-36 year old players?

Dear Yankee bloggers -

First off, I am sorry in advance if I have already contacted you about this.

I just started a new blog as a continuation of my old one - NYYStadiumInsider.com.

The blog is now called "New Stadium Insider" (http://newstadiuminsider.com)

If possible, can you please link to this site, but also leave the link to NYY Stadium Insider if you had one before? I had a lot of good stuff there that I am keeping up as an archive.

Please email me (ross at NYYStadiumInsider dot com) if we have not exchanged links before to confirm and I will gladly add you to my blogroll!

Thanks and Happy New Year -

Ross
