Selig-takes-questions
My entry:For starters, zombie Bowie Kuhn claws his way up from the grave - (He's dead, right?) - and steals Bud Selig's hairpiece, holding it for ransom unless Selig nullifies the deal. Peter Gammons throws himself off the street side of the Green Monster, bounces three times, and goes through Bill Buckner's legs, and at the funeral, the shamed Redsocks announce they would have given Miami a better deal, but the phones are still out from Hurricane Sandy.Enraged, Tim McCarver goes back into the studio and with help from Tracy Chapman cuts an album of new songs about the Yankees destroying the sanctity of the game. Alphonso angrily notes that the trade emptied the entire Yankee farm system, and then must be reminded that he predicted none of them would be any good, but he still hates the trade.When everything concludes, the trade is scrapped, all the players on both teams are donated to the Mets, the Yankees forfeit first round draft picks for trying too hard to win - it&#...

Girardi: Jeter is questionable for opening day

There are a couple of things that New Yorkers have come to count on at Yankee Stadium every Opening Day — the sight of what MLB's fattest payroll looks like and Derek Jeter filling the gap at shortstop.  This might be the first spring that the team has neither. While general manager Brian Cashman breaks down the Yankees' payroll so it is under the luxury tax limit,...

Yankees Interested in Mike Napoli

If they do lose Martin, Napoli would be a pretty good replacement. After a great 2011 campaign, Napoli fell off a bit last season hitting .227/.343/.469 with 24 HR and 56 RBI in 108 games for the Rangers. Not great, but better than the numbers Martin put up the last two years.

Feeling Better Now

When I first heard of the deal made by the Blues Jays, I became a bit unruly.  Needless to say, a bender followed from which I am now emerging.I realize now we should all be happy.The guys the Blue Jays got for nothing are much too young to be Yankees.  I mean, we didn't sign Torri Hunter because he was only going to be 37, right?In addition, and this is the real story; Miami...
