最好的计划

昨晚新闻爆出时费城人签下了Cliff Lee,我最初的反应是难以置信,然后是愤怒洋基队需要开始投球(特别是左撇子),他们想要李,所以乔治他们应得得到他但是在白天,我考虑的是他们当然应得没有他们被费城人队的球场和广场击败费城人队总经理鲁本·阿马罗不仅取消了今年最大的自由球员签约 - 他不知道有没有人知道费城人对李的兴趣直到他们完成交易之后。

大多数美国职棒大联盟球队老板都很胆怯他们只满足于拥有一支球队,并且幸运,也许是十年左右,并且有一个好的赛季他们希望以便宜的方式取得成功,从9000万美元的阵容中获得2亿美元的成功那种购买快速汽车却让他们变慢的人。

我在一年前写过这篇文章,在洋基队赢得世界大赛后:

洋基球迷不会对洋基队的工资单感到内疚It’s not like the team is run at a lossIt’s a business, and their business is winning baseball gamesWinning leads to profits from ticket sales, TV, and merchandise; profits are used to sign all-star-caliber talent; and the talent leads to winning.

我引用了这个我的朋友和洋基队球迷Khoi Vinh的作品

It’s pretty safe to say that a good number of those who hate the Yankees because of their payroll are unabashed capitalists, too; they’d be very unlikely to begrudge the fact that the highest valued, best performing organization in any given market also led that marketThat’s not just capitalism, it’s the way capitalism is practiced in America.

这是一个良性循环,当发挥得很好:赢得产生金钱,金钱支付人才,人才导致获胜洋基球迷变得被宠坏了很长一段时间,没有其他球队能够体会到这种追求卓越的程度也许是红袜队但这一举动超出竞争对手1to add Cliff Lee to a pitching staff that was, already, arguably the best in baseball? It’s the sort of brash move that heretofore would have only been made by the Yankees.

现在有第二支棒球队不仅仅是希望赢得这一切,但是预计至。
