Saturday Night Open ThreadBy
Well, if you were hoping the Yankees would trade Alex Rodriguez to the Marlins for Heath Bell, you can forget it now. Miami traded Bell to the Diamondbacks today as part of a three-team trade that sent Chris Young to the Athletics, Cliff Pennington to Arizona, and a prospect to the Marlins. Young definitely would have made sense for the Yankees as a right-handed hitter with power and speed who can play a legitimate center field, but alas. I have to think the likelihood of a Justin Upton trade just went down, but I suppose Seth Smith or Josh Reddick may be available now.
Anyway, here is your open thread for the night. There’s no baseball being played — the Giants and Cardinals are traveling to San Francisco and will continue the NLCS tomorrow. There is college football on though, so talk about that or any non-politics topic here. Enjoy.
