Chan Ho Park takes less money to play with the Yankees

What just happened here?

Chan Ho Park reportedly turned down a one-year, $3.25 million contract from the Phillies earlier in the offseason and is now saying he has signed with the Yankees for $1.2 million? Roy Halladay takes less money so he can come to Philly and win a championship while Chan Ho skips town for less money.

I guess he feels like he has a better shot of winning a ring with the Yanks in 2010, but I’d sure like to figure out the real reason why he’d turn down $2 million just to play with the Yankees, who had missed the playoffs the year before.

My theory is that his heart still lies in Philly and is willing to accept less money to sabotage the Yankee bullpen…from within. He’s a narc. He’ll gain the trust of the Yankee faithful all season, then give up back-to-back gopher balls to Chase and Ryno to win Game 7 of the 2010 World Series. Only thing is, we now have Jose Contreras, a former Yankee, on our squad who could very well be on the inside for the Yanks.

Or Chan Ho could just be some sicko that gets his kicks by playing ball in New York. Either way, thanks for the solid 2009 and we all wish you all the worst in 2010 while with the Yankees. You sick bastard. And I mean that in the most respectable way.
