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.
im actually not that upset. the way everyone was talking about him, he was a freaking young or koufax. he hasent really proven anything. and im not that worried. theres still a ton of ball left to be played. although, i heard if the yanks get swept, torre's job will be in serious jeopardy. so then theyll hire girardi as the new manager and he'll lead them to a win or 2. he was suppose to be torre's successor anyways.
