Do you remember when the trading deadline focused on
Johan Santana? The Twins wanted everything from the Yankees including George Steinbrenner's Shipping Company.
From the Mets, they took a good, defensive centerfielder
and a bag of slightly used balls.
Which brings us to today's catfight.
From the Yankees, the Toronto Blue Dogs ( Birds?) will demand:
6. Austin Jackson
From the Red sox, the Toronto Blue Dick-heads will demand:
1. Brad Penny
2. Some 34 year-old A-ball back-up outfielder hitting .213.
So pay attention and go to Chicago.
Do not pick up the phone. Do not mess with this.
If you are bummed by the recent debacles of trades with the Pirates ( ours, that is ), don't think you can make up for it here. Do the right thing for once. Do nothing.
That should be easy.
