Yankees Playoff Revenue Share Set At $115,065.28

So apparently fielding a team that was only good enough to get swept out of the ALCS can gain a team a whopping $115,065.28 for 58 players and coaches. Just as an FYI the World Series champion San Francisco Giants earned a little over $377 K after they swept the Detroit Tigers which surpassed the previous record of $362 K held by the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals.

Yankees Avoid Arbitration With Eli Whiteside

The Yankees and Eli Whiteside have announced that the two have come to an agreement on a contract for the 2012 season worth $625 K avoiding arbitration. Eli is a great defensive back up catcher but it sure would be nice if we were more worried about who guys like Eli will be backing up and less about saving a few dollars in arbitration. Maybe it is just me...
