A happy day in the Yankiverse: Hal "I'm Not Cheap" Steinbrenner just saved a few more pennies

After Yoan Moncada signed with Boston, a few Gammonites suggested that the "Empire" was more interested in the Cuban star infielder Hector Oliva, who supposedly is ready for the majors now.

Well, so much for that idea.

Today, the Dodgers signed Oliva for $62 million. No word on whether "I'm Not Cheap" even picked up the phone. Though he was pretty proud of finishing second in the Moncada sweepstakes. It proved he's not cheap.

Considering that the Yankees next year will fall beyond the artificially-set, international free agent payment threshold - and thus cannot go above $300,000 on any single signee - it's safe to say that "I'm Not Cheap" will be saving a ton of money this and next year.

I just hope that he listens closely to the Yankee Radio Network. If so, he'll realize that a 15-minute call could save him up to 15 percent on car insurance. That's even more savings! Good grief, if he ever once breathed asbestos, back when he worked those construction jobs, "I'm Not Cheap" might even have a big cash lawsuit in his future. He should dial 1-IMNOTCHEAP.
