ESPN - Sources: Mark Teixeira, New York Yankees agree to 8-year deal
How much fun is it to be Brian Cashman?The Yankees have spent more than $400 million in salary in the last month, with $161 million going to left-handed pitcher CC Sabathia in a seven-year deal and $82.5 million on right-hander A.J. Burnett for five years.
The agreement with Teixeira gives New York the four highest-paid players in baseball -- third baseman Alex Rodriguez, shortstop Derek Jeter, Sabathia and Teixeira.

Does it make you sick to think of how freely and loosely money is being spent in times like these?
New found hate for athletes and the absurd amount they make?
