Tim from MLBTR found a report saying that the Yanks forked over a 2-yr, $2M deal to the now 38-yr old, Mitchell Report named ex-slugger. Juan Gone may have made the biggest blunder in the history of the universe when he rejected the Tigers’ 8-yr, $140M contract offer in 2001, a deal that would still have 2 years remaining. I don’t believe the report for a second – the Yanks have zero use for another DH, let alone a DH that hasn’t seen a Major League pitch in over 2 years. Chalk this one up to a slow news time.
Update: Nevermind, turns out December 28th is “el Día de los Santos Inocentes” in Puerto Rico, or “The Day of Holy Innocents.” It’s their April Fools Day. Oh those clever Puerto Ricans.
