Oh, yeah -- I was assuming the Yankees get out of the contract one way or another. That's true -- if they can't, he's ridin' the pine somewhere. At least they'll save a full year of his contract money -- but if he's a Yankee in 2015, they need to sign the reality TV show contracts now, because it's going to be a train wreck.
