What in the world is going on this year? Everyone joked that 2012 was "the end times" and nearly everything that occurred, no matter what it was, was turned into an apocalypse joke - and I'll admit I made my fair share of them - but my goodness, does it seem like we were all off a year?
Check out these tweets by Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports:
Vernon Wells? Really?
Is this rock bottom? Please tell me it is because I'm not sure I can take much more.
UPDATE 8:00pm: The Yankees will indeed pay $13 million of the $42 million owed through 2014. This seems incredibly high considering the type of player Wells has been over the last 6 years. There's still very little we know about the deal, so I'll hold off on the analysis until we get more information.
UPDATE 8:20pm: Joel Sherman adds that the Yankees will pay the majority of the $13 million in 2013, in order to save money on the budget in 2014.
