WIN METHOD at Winter Meetings 2010

The news is Cliff Lee will sign a YANKEE contract. Lee will help solidify the YANKEE rotation as the number two man behind CC Sabathia. It appears to be a six year contract which would mean Lee will finish his career as a YANKEE. Other great news which in essence were no brainers Derek Jeter the captain, and Mariano Rivera, both lifelong YANKEES who vowed neither would ever wear another teams uniform are both signed and ready to go for 28 in 11. Andy Pettitte still hasn't made a final decision on whether or not he will return for 2011. In my opinion, I think Andy will return for one more year and then positively pack it in and retire, win or lose. The goal is to have Lee signed before Christmas. That way the Lee family will have the merriest Christmas ever. Derek Jeter at 36 is highest paid shortstop in baseball, the best shortstop in baseball, the cover boy for Major League Baseball, a sure first round Hall of Fame inductee, the best defensive shortstop in baseball over the past decade and a half, and one of the great YANKEES of all time. Mariano Rivera has simply been the greatest relief pitcher in baseball history. What more can you say, that's all folks.
MERRY CHRISTMAS YANKEE FANS and WIN METHOD FANS.

Jerry Curcio said...

If this is right on, we are in good shape for a run for our 28th WS title.

Linda Pardo said...

Just came in a pulled up this entry. Super. Merry Christmas and a it's going to be a great New Year.

Al Ashton said...

Lee is going to be a Yankee. How sweet.

Bert Jackson said...

WIN METHOD does it again. Scoops everyone. Great stuff.

Carl Joyner said...

Wonderful information and the first to know.

YankeeMike said...

What a nice Christmas present. Thank you WIN METHOD and thank you Yankees.

Xavier Walsh said...

We know as the baseball world guesses.

RLA said...

Superb, at the least. Jeter and Mo locked in and the biggest FA in the fold.

Teena/Bronx said...

What a nice piece of new to see first thing in morning.

Victor Gandozi said...

Did spring training start yet? Great news.

Eddie OConnor said...

Hopefully Hank and Hal are realists and not that stupid, although the way they treated Jeter was stupid.

Steve said...

Jeter and Mo will go out like the champions they are and the best pitcher and position player in baseball over their career. Welcome Mr. Lee.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

WIN METHOD is first again. Wonderful.

Harry Stavris said...

I just hope Andy comes back for one more year. Lee would just be an extra.

Gus Papa said...

Good news on the home front. All this will make for a banner 2011 season.

Erica Johnston said...

It's all a win win or is it a WIN METHOD.

Linda Rice said...

Oh my, how sweet this all is.

Carl Hooks said...

Hope it's all true.

Hans Schroeder said...

Would be great addition to staff.

Tony Sparks said...

Go Yankees, go WIN METHOD.

bigbadwolf said...

Again the first to know. What a blog. I love this site.

johnsondc said...

You got that right bigbadwolf. We are always the first to know about important Yankee news. WIN METHOD cuts through the BS.

Kevin Gilchrist said...

The rest of the news media is lost in space on the Lee deal. LOL. WIN METHOD rules.

Vinny Ferrero said...

The stat fraud Jeter haters are still crying about how much Jeter is getting paid for the nest several years.

Quay Oh said...

Nice catch with Lee.

Steve said...

It is obvious Carl Crawford was not WIN METHOD for the Yankees, with hisgoing to the bosux. No wonder WIN METHOD never mentioned him.

Stan the Man said...

Did the bosux overpay for one of the finest defensive left fielders and then have no left field to defend for half the season. If WIN METHOD didn't mention Crawford, then surely Crawford was not WIN METHOD for the Yankees. The sux have to live with him now. Lee is ours.

Sandro Icavor said...

Lee is the prize, everyone else is second string. Plus, Crawford is no upgrade over Gardner, Granderson, Swisher. It's a win win for the Yankees.

Phil Jenkins said...

I can't wait until the rest of the sports world catches up to WIN METHOD. That will never happen. LOL

Teena/Bronx said...

The bosux can get all the bats they want, but they can't match our lineup, they don't come near our pitching, and they ain't WIN METHOD.

RLA said...

Well said Teena. But the sux will be our competition unless Tampa does something. They lost both Crawford and Pena, but they do have pitching over the sux.

Tom Loughlin said...

You got to get at a laugh when you read that Lee may make up his mind by the weekend.

Warren Hammond said...

Great news about Lee.

Dominic said...

Well the weekend is just about upon us. Soon everyone will know what WIN METHOD fans already know.

Yankeeforever said...

With Lee we trump everything the bosux have done. We bluffed them on Crawford and they paid far more than what he is worth.

Giambino said...

I think CC being here in NY may have been an important point in bringing Lee to NY.

George W said...

Super to have Lee in the fold.

Al Ashton said...

In my opinion, I would think Lee will make his announcement to the unknowing media this weekend.

Pete H said...

Why does Lee feel he has to string this out?

Benny Pake said...

This is fantastic news.

Claude Reeves said...

Love that Jeets will be around and the leader for three more years.

Linda Rice said...

Haste make waste. slow but steady wins the day.

Gus Papa said...

Ranger manager Washington says he thinks Lee is going to stay in Texas.

bigbadwolf said...

Now it is thought Lee will not confirm until tomorrow.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Hope Lee doesn't pull a switcheroo and sandbag the Yankees.

Anonymous said...

Great scoop again, WIN METHOD. I'm starting to think you are Brian Cashman!

Johnny Hines said...

Looks like the Yankees may be seeking Russell Martin also.

Paul Hirschman said...

One signing at a time.

Anonymous said...

CLIFF LEE TO THE PHILLIES

Good job Yankees F.O. HAHAHAHAHAHA

Anonymous said...

Guess money can't buy everything.

Steve said...

It sure looks like Lee made a fool of himself going with the Phillies. What now folks.

sid greenberg/nyc said...

Lee returns to the inferior league. Tells you something about him.

Cory said...

Lee may nut be the sharpest pencil in the box.

Tom Loughlin said...

Lee who?

Anonymous said...

Lesson learned for Yankee fans who chose to spit/throw beer at his wife. Maybe a little class and respect next time.

bigbadwolf said...

Right anonymous. In all the years and all the games played against some arch rivals, playoff and World Series games, the only report was that Lees wife was spat upon and had beer thrown at her. Just some more of BS unsubstaniated spew for the media and the fools who believe it because it is anti Yankee.

Tom Loughlin said...

From what I have been reading via all the media sources regarding Cliff Lee, the Rangers, the Yankees, and the Phillies.....it appears Lee is a two faced, phony, lying, sack of manure.
