It's Official: A-Rod is a Yankee

Bud Selig has approved the trade that will send Alex Rodriguez to the Yankees and Red Sox fans everywhere into apoplexy. I'll have some thoughts about this later, but for now, I agree with what Peter Gammons says. And before anyone starts whining about Yankee money, bear this in mind: The small market clubs will be getting plenty of Steinbrenner dollars this year from the luxury tax. Will that go into improving their talent, or fattening their owners? George Steinbrenner may be many things, but complacent ain't one of them.
