    Anybody but Lou Pinella should be good.

      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

      • Oh well. The Yankees don't have a real DH this year anyway.

          • PS what I say is not totally random, but basically Gordon Wittenmayer made a story out of very little and so it is all the Chicago Sports scene is talking about.

            I am guessing he is using the Cubs job for leverage with the Yankees for a larger contract.

            Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

              Probably. He'll get his money though. The only reason he didn't get it yet is because they didn't couldn't work a deal out with Jeter and Mo this offseason and they come first.

              • Oh ESPN. You really don't need to improve the quality of your analysts.

                Show a clip of Braun's diving catch. "That's something he really does well."

                Apparently Braun is a top notch fielder.

                  Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.

                  So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                        Woah, I didn't see that coming. I doubt Gonzalez keeps the offense going but he's a solid bat that can't do any worse than Escobar at this point. I'm going to miss Yunel's defense though, but I won't miss his pouting.

                          Well, um, that's an odd deal.

                            Selling low on Yunel seems dumb to me: Carer low in BABIP, power vanished, but everything else is similar.

                            Gonzalez is having a tremendous power surge, and is still walking at a 4.6% clip(That's bad.) It's not a huge hit defensively, but Escobar is better, and Escobar is younger. Unless Wren really believes in the power/the prospects, it's a very odd deal.

                            • I think the bigger problem with Yunel is attitude. Cox has benched him numerous times for lack of hustle, and it was only a matter of time before he wore out his welcome. If you include that in the trade, it makes a little more sense, but regardless its still odd.

                              Does anyone know what Gonzalez's current contract is?
