I Hope You Didn't Buy that Gagne Yanks Jersey Yet
Tuesday, July 31, 2007

The trade deadline has officially passed, and unfortunately the 2007 trading era was not very thrilling for the Yanks. As much as a guy like Gagne or Teixiera could have helped the team and their (albeit relatively unlikely) bid for a post-season spot, I am much more upset about the fact that the Yanks didn’t manage to ditch any dead weight than I am disappointed about them not scoring an arm or a bat. After seeing Posada’s obvious disgust towards Farnsworthless this weekend, I held out hope that perhaps the Cash Man would amp up his efforts to pawn the man off on some even more desperate team, but apparently every other team has either had the misfortune of meeting him – which surely would cause even the most war-hardened front office folks to shake their heads ‘no’ after just 5 minutes in his presence – or just couldn’t afford our asking price of one roll of nickels. There were also vague rumors of Seattle being interested in Kei Igawa, but someone must have shown them footage of his pitching, because nothing came from that, either.

Lest you wallow in your sorrows too much, let me assure you that a trade was made today, as Dr. Scott “Please Torre Don’t Put Me In, My Arm Is Literally About to Detach From My Shoulder And Then Fall to the Ground in Flames” Proctor was traded to the Dodgers in exchange for utility man Wilson “Say My Last Name Really Fast, It Is Fun” Betemit. This decidedly anticlimactic move won’t really make much of a difference for the team (although it does essentially eliminate the possibility of another glove bonfire, unfortunately) this year, but it has caused some people to speculate that perhaps Betemit has been brought in as A-Rod’s replacement at third base in the likely event that he goes off in search of greener pastures after the season. Considering Betemit’s entirely un-A-Rod-like numbers and the amount of cash we all know Big Stein has at his disposal on can only hope that the Yankees have ever intention of locking up A-Rod as soon as the season is over, regardless of the price, and that their dreams for Betemit include nothing more than Cairo-esque utility work. Please.

    They are THREE games out of the wildcard. THREE. Unlikely?

    Uh, Atlanta offered Bob Wickman for him. Farnsworth played for Atlanta so I think they "met" him. The Yankees balked because their numbers are nearly identical and the Braves wanted the Yankees to pay all of Farnsworth's remaining contract AND pay Wickman.

    Scott “Please Torre Don’t Put Me In, My Arm Is Literally About to Detach From My Shoulder And Then Fall to the Ground in Flames”
    As opposed to an arm "figuratively" detaching itself?

    Betemit OPS+: 116
    Cairo OPS+ 72
    Phillips OPS+: 100


    It seems like that whole post was made based solely on emotion without logical thought or statistical evidence.

    you seem to be an angry man with little to no sense of humor.

    that said, I do appreciate the effort you put into writing that comment :)

    Why aren't more people griping about the Red Sox being the real evil empire?
