ZELOUS WHEELER RUMORS

No Maas says no maas

Terrible news this Christmas. My fave Yankee fan blog is going the way of Zelous Wheeler. (Not moving to Japan, but exiting.) Shortly after the new year, No Maas will be no more.I wonder if the Yankees even know what they are losing...Under the universal fan mantra, "If we had $200 million to burn, the Yankees would never lose a game," No Maas has been a great read since 2005, the...

Wait a minute, I got it: Why not just go with a new Yangervis/Zelous every month?

Last night, when the new Mr. Yankee, Zelous Wheeler, whacked his first major league home run, and ran the bases grinning like a 10-year-old over a plate of pancakes, I had a double epiphany:1.) Oh, yeah... that Phil Hughes!2.) We've got a new, four-week all-star!That's right. Zelous is the new Yangervis. And instead of lamenting his eventual slump, let's embrace his Solartehood...

Still hope: Yangervis survives the cut

But Mason Williams didn't.Ten players sent to the minors, no surprises. Zelous Wheeler is still a zealous Yankee, and Solarte is still Yankee-gervis.Of course they'll soon be gone. But someday... imagine this:A Yankee player without a ceiling built of concrete.
