    Hmmm now the O’s have a guy that can play 2b….Brian Roberts on the move

  2. Murph1010 says:

    Confused as to why this trade would be posted as a headline on a Yanks blog, but whatever.

    I hope this doesn’t mean Brian Roberts to the Yanks when they trade Cano rumors.

  3. Marty Puccio says:

    Glad to get Hernandez out of the AL. He hit the Yanks well (and nobody else, apparently).

  4. SWB says:

    I could see Roberts being floated to Chicago in the Peavy-Chicago-Balt deal, they looked hard at him last year

    Hey, if you guys see Sweeny Murti, give him a pat on the back. He’s currently engaged in a conversation of Mike Francesa and he sounds so stressed.

    From MLBTR:

    3:21pm: Ken Rosenthal says it’s not out of the question that Burnett’s price could rise to five years, $100MM if the Yanks miss out on Sabathia.

    Surely they jest?!

    • Jamal G. says:

      Nope, actually Sweeny Murti the same exact point just moments ago on WFAN. It makes sense, if you’re the respective agents for A.J. Burnett, Derk Lowe and Ben Sheets, why wouldn’t you up the asking price for those guys if the Yanks are out on CC Sabathia. This reason – among many others – is why everyone who is suggesting the Yankees move on from Sabathia are fucking idiots; they don’t factor in the ramifications of such a decision; they are only factoring some idiotic, “Yankee pride”, or whatever the fuck they are crying about.

    Wouldn’t mind ROBERTS to the Yanks, that way we good get rid of “Bad Attitude Cano” in a hurry. Don’t worry about 1st Base, Adrian Gonzalez will fill that spot nicely, IF we don’t get TEX? We gotta get Bobby A back, and quickly! Then just worry about the Pitching Staff. Thats where our problems lay. Even a couple of middle range starters ( Garland?) would be okay, we are not that far away from that next Pennant. Onw other thought: I sure would like the Yanks to finish that McLOUTH deal with Pirates, thats the final piece of this puzzle.

    • Mike A. says:

      Ugh. Take that to LoHud.

      This absolutely, positively, without a doubt has to be satire.

      There is no possible way that any human being who actually agrees with any single line of thought contained in that monstrosity of stupidity could have typed that out in full English words and sentences, could have possessed the opposable thumbs necessary do complete said typing and computer manipulation, or could have managed to live to an age of viability and self-sustenance necessary as a prerequisite for the evolution of language itself without accidentally killing itself in some sad and pathetic way, like exposure.

      Hence, Ockham’s Razor dictates that it’s a carefully crafted satire to poke fun and people actually dumb enough to think any of those things.

      Well done, “Lloyd Johnson”. You are a super-genius, a giant among men. Jonathan Swift himself bows down at your feet. Your satirical ability is unmatched. You, sir, are the greatest writer ever.
