Get Greedy... Get Manny? No Thanks

As many of you probably do not know the name of this blog was essentially hatched way back in 2009 when the Yankees wen't on a spending spree signing CC Sabathia, AJ Burnett, Mark Teixeira, and acquiring Nick Swisher from the Chicago White Sox. I, myself, and dm23HOF were all members of a forum that will remain nameless where I started the, albeit sarcastically, "Get Greedy...Get Manny" campaign. I campaigned for the Yankees to get greedy, blow the payroll up, and sign Manny Ramirez. I pointed out that he was right handed power bat that we could use, would easily solve our clutch hitting problem, would bring in millions in merchandise sales and all that jazz, and could easily be hid in left field. Thankfully, hindsight being 20/20, the Yankees did not sign him and the "Get Greedy" campaign ended. When we decided to leave the forum world for the blog world we decided we had to include the "Get Greedy" campaign somehow in the blog and it's title and thus the Greedy Pinstripes was born.

Now I said all that to say this, Manny Ramirez has signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers. After opting out of his contract while playing professionally in Taiwan there was some speculation that the Yankees might look at Manny but they never seemed to show any interest. We're not getting greedy and we're definitely not getting Manny, oh well. Yankees tickets will be sold nonetheless.
