Anything less than a World Series at this point would be a disappointment. A team can't put forth this type of money and on these type of players and not win.
I am a Yankees fan and am very excited over the signing. Who wouldn't be? (Besides Red Sox fans). Last year, left a sour taste in my mouth and it was hard to root for this team when they just seemed to be aging before my very eyes.
Granted, in five or six years I will probably feel the same way again as New York has locked these guys up for some time.
This give Yankees the four-highest paid players in the game right now with Teixeira, ARod, Derek Jeter and Sabathia.
