I think both Jay and Goldman are excellent at what they do. I confess I have always been a big Goldman fan as he is not afraid to voice unpopular opinions. Actually, if I remember, he was against signing Lee if it was 5 years (or more) and $100m or more.

Someone will have to explain to me why we should care how much money a team spends on a player, especially since spending caps in baseball are artificial and self-imposed. I hear these "is he worth xx million and xx years' conversations all the time among Angels fans here in Orange County, as they try to justify the fact that ownership doesn't care enough (in other words, spend enough) to get the best players and to win. I'm sure the fans have had similar conversations for decades in Pittsburgh and Baltimore. I don't root for the Yankees to make money. i root for them to win.

Or maybe, instead of "Greatest Teams" lists, we should start making "Most Financially Successful Teams for their Owners" lists.
