With the signing of David Robertson, the Yankees payroll stands at $206 million, just $19 million above the magic number that Yankee fans everywhere have inked over their hearts.

Today, I speak for the Yankiverse in saying: So close... and yet... so far away.

Just nineteen million dollars.

That's barely eight months of Arod. That's the Kansas City infield. That's one day of attack ads, three drone strikes, a movie starring Julia Roberts.

Nineteen million dollars.

Mmmmm. I can taste the austerity on my lips.

Has John Sterling come up with his home run call for Russ Canzler?
