Yet another disheartening development for MLB. The Yankees tie up being in the World Series race for the next seven years by signing one of the most talented players in baseball. The A's go from being one of the only few Yankee contenders to maybe, possible, if a miracle happens, playoff hopefuls. Yankees fans are obviously ecstatic, while every other baseball fan just let out a collective groan. Who's next on Steinbrenner's shopping list? And how much more boring can he make baseball?
