Mr. Scherzer Goes to Washington. Steinbrenner KIds must sell the Yankees.

Max Scherzer has agreed to a seven year $210 million deal with the Washington Nationals, which might be spread out over 14 years.

I don't think that Max Scherzer will experience anything quite so melodramatic but the repercussions on the New York Yankees might be.

If the Yankees don't sign Max Scherzer, the Steinbrenner Kids should sell the team. Thursday, December 11, 2014

Max Scherzer is pretty much all that's left for the Yankees to add any meaningful player for next season.

That's it. If the Steinbrenner Kids think that Yankee fans will sit around and accept dumb and lazy management over a boring team as Met fans have, they're nuts. Pretty much every major move and non-move in this and the previous off seasons have been ass backwards. The one final significant free agent player available playing a position needed by the Yankees was Max Scherzer. Can the Yankees win with Scherzer? Doubtful. But the Yankees cannot contend without Scherzer. Plus, Scherzer would have given the Yankees what he will give the Washington Nationals: a veteran anchor to their starting rotation for several years to come.

Steinbrenner Kids, sell the Yankees! Please!
