That's not the point, D, and you know it. You were gloating about how the Rangers outbid, well, basically just themselves for A-Rod as if it were some amazing move in an effort to make people think that they can outbid the big boys for Lee. In reality, they badly outbid themselves to basically trade A-Rod for $0.20 on the dollar.
I put the A-Rod "trade" series on the bad moves list.
I didn't put the A-Rod "signing" on the bad moves list.
Signing A-Rod overall had many positive effects even though it didn't bring them a Championship. If we could've gotten better value in the trades I wouldn't have considered it such a mess. Soriano wasn't a bad move really, then but the Soriano for Wilkerson trade was the point where it got ridiculous.
This is all moot anyways. As I later mentioned, Texas has entirely new ownership. They will carve their own path. I think they'll do their best to resign Lee, but I know the fact exists that he could join the Yankees. The part I disagree with is that it's a done deal.
