    I donít think a buehrle would be able to get to stroman at this point. You need someone that Stro can relate too as a young successful African American who views culture the same way as him. Stro has that Melo state of mind, in which building his brand is just as important then his on field success. And even tho that can be viewed at as smart long term, most these players lose track of what their bread and butter is and their decline comes quicker and harder then it should. It was different when Stro was a rookie, but Stroman appears to feel privileged and cocky now. Thatís why Price was such a huge influence on him in a good way. Price has that swag and loves to have fun but is very down to earth and respectable. I member reading a article on Archer and it went on about how he learned so much from Price and his legacy off the field that he still tries to follow years after Price left TB. It went on about has archer does big brother events even on the road and he creates Prices off field influences on it.

    Archer is very similar to Stroman on Twitter. I would like to take a bet that most of his teammates haven't had much influence on Stroman off the field as they don't see it as a problem, because he's being himself. And Marcus grew up in a 90% white, small town and went to Duke. He likely views culture much differently than CC who grew up in the most culturally diverse neighbourhood in the US.

    Aitn't no one signing C.C. to be a leader. His appeal is that he could be serviceable but doesn't require a long term contract. He's the kind of guy you sign when you're trying plan for the long term without entirely killing your wild card chances.

    You don't need anyone to "get to" Stroman. Stroman is absolutely fine on and off the field. He's just a douche. But in terms of performance, commitment and drive, what more could you ask for? You have to just live with it. I wouldn't try to change him really.

    Also, he's like almost 27 already.

    Yankees don't need a physical to sign him. He could die at the field every time he's out there.

    A dozen teams would have given him 1 year 10M

    He obviously wanted to stay put and I can't blame him
