The Yanks avoided arbitration with Joba, Hughes and Logan, as all three signed one-year deals today.
Joba will get $1.4 million, Philthy will get $2.7 million and Boom Boom Boone will get $1.2 million in 2011. Hughes is a steal at $2.7 million, that is a fact, and I think Joba has a bounce-back year from his up-and-down 2010 and earns his dough.
Boone is kind of a steal at his price, I liked him last year, but it seems like a lot for a lefty specialist who only threw 40 innings last year. Oh well, what can you do?
The team now has no more arbitration-eligible players this year, so now it’s pretty much time to start counting down the days until pitchers and catchers report. 27 MORE DAYS!!!
