New York Yankees News & Notes: Cliff Lee is dumb, and so are fake competitions and Mets rejects

Cliff Lee may have just delivered the best contract one-liner ever, or at least the best since Mike Hampton said he signed with the Rockies "for the Colorado schools":

Lee told Philadelphia radio station WIP last week that he chose to sign with Philadelphia instead of New York because "some of the Yankee guys are getting older."

NoMaas breaks down the average age of each team and concludes the average age of the Yankees roster is over a year younger than the Phillies.

Sorry Cliff, stick to pitching.

  • The word out of the Yankees camp is that Jesus Montero and Austin Romine are still competing for the backup catcher's job, which reminds the Yankee Analysts of last spring's 5th starter "competition" and reminds me of Dennis Kucinich's Presidential "competition" a few years ago. 
  • We're two weeks ahead of April Fools Day, so I really don't know how to explain this.
