Hal can't stand losing money. Plus the initial threshold was supposed to save the team 20-30 mil but instead would only save them 6.5-7.5 mil.
It costs the Yankees more to not make the playoffs than it saves them.
We should still sign Ubaldo Jimenez to shore up the rotation but I doubt we sign anyone else and just rely on Phelps,Nova & Pineda to round out the rotation being CC,Hiroki and Masahiro.
