Happ’s Back

The Yankees have finally made a move and that is bringing JA Happ back on a two-year deal with a vesting option for a third year. The average salary is an amazing $17-million.

If you pencil in Happ for around 170 innings a year, that works out to $100,000 an inning. At that price, I really wonder how long it will be before we see expanded rosters that allow teams to take advantage of a minimum MLB salary for relievers that works out to about $9,000 an inning?

But until then, this is an acceptable deal. Lance Lynn just got 3-years and $30-million guaranteed from Texas. Momma’s let your babies grow up to be starting pitchers.
