Yankees Offseason Notes: Yankees get $115,065.28 for Postseason

There hasn’t been a lot of Yankees news going around–until today. For the Bronx Bombers, it pays to be in the postseason.

– The New York Yankees are going to get $115,065.28 for playing in the 2012 postseason. That was for making it to the ALCS. The San Francisco Giants get the most money out of the players that played in the postseason since they won the World Series with $337,002.64. That’s the most made in the postseason for a team that won the World Series. The Texas Rangers and the Atlanta Braves also got a piece of some money, the Rangers making $16,999.09 and the Braves making $19,609.04. And for those asking, yes Alex Rodriguez will get a share of that money just for striking out and doing nothing.

In Other News

– The New York Yankees signed catcher Eli Whiteside to  a one year contract, avoiding arbitration. I still don’t get the point of trading for Eli Whiteside when they have Chris Stewart and Francisco Cervelli.

– The Yankees are going after Russell Martin, but Russell Martin has visited other cities for teams that have interest in him. Martin however did say that he is interested in playing for the Yankees next season.

Andy Pettitte is slated to make a decision soon but according to Mark Feinsand of the Daily News, Pettitte has already started training.

In News Around The League

– Here’s the shocker that made me spit my coffee out this morning: The Tampa Bay Rays extended Evan Longoria‘s contract until the year 2022. Ladies and gentlemen, may I introduce to you: Alex Rodriguez 2.0. It will be interesting to see how this contract turns out.

  1. I just read that Russell Martin is seeking a three-year deal from someone and all I can say is that any GM that gives him a three-year deal must be insane. Average catching skills with little to no bat.
    Here’s hoping that there is someone out there looking for a player with those traits who will give him a three-year deal.

  2. THAT does not make sense,, the yankees are getting 115K? are you sure???

    it should be a few million no?,……..i know its not th superbowl or anything,… but they did play in 9 post season games,, all televised on national cable tv,….

    i think you have it wrong,, that has got to be per player,.. eachplayer,, not the yankees company

  3. Jim, your niave to think that A-Rod and the others that were outed are the only players that took Amphetamines,Steriods, and Testosterone. Braun proved that their are players that are still getting away with it. It’s time to move on, about 50 to 75 % of the players took some kind of PED. There are many hall of famers who took them also.

  4. No, it is time to put in lifetime bans,, for life, out of baseball forever

    why do you want to keep poaying more and more money for things in life,m based on some baseball player getting more mon ey than he deserves because he used hgh?

    the economic costof players using is astronomical

    and it all comes out of our pockets

  5. Looks like the Yanks are going to sign Pettite,Ichiro, Mo, and Martin in the next few days, all good moves on their part.
