Seems to me that other teams were willing to pay a high price just to [i]talk[i] to him too. Yankees offered about 32 mil and the Mets even offered about 40 mil. Obviously, other teams felt he was worth it, the Sox just outbid them. Plus, if he never signed a contract with the Sox, the deal would've been off and they would've gotten their 50 mil back. Transfer fees happen all the time in soccer, it's not that big of a deal.
Sounds like Yankee fan is just upset that their team didn't get him.
All that being said, it's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too early in the season to be talking mess. The Yankee won't go 8-154 this season. They'll get on a streak like they ALWAYS do and the end of the season will be a race for the division.
