The Yankee draft picks - 27, 31, 32 - as explained through Biblical prophesy

Yesterday, Rafael Soriano signed with the Washington Nationals - (yes, even the woeful Nats are now raiding our larder) - for $28 million and a XL jersey with XXL tails. Meanwhile, we're left to play the traditional rebuilding strategy of the Washingtons and Tampas: Finish last enough times, and eventually you draft the Bryce Harpers, Evan Longorias and Stephen Strasburgs, and you challenge.

So on this great Yankee holiday - Arod Surgery Day - let's spend a few moments looking forward to the next Yankee resurgence: 2018!

Meanwhile, yet another Yankee star hath walketh out the Doomsday Door of Judgement, aka "Armaggeddon outahere." In return, the Yankees gain another high "sandwich" pick in the June amateur draft. We now hold numbers 27, 31 and 32.  (Brackman, and Culver and Bleich, oh my!)

Still, those numbers - 27, 31 and 32 - haunt me. What do they mean?  Being the Bible scholar that I am, I quickly found answers in the Old Testament Book of Acts.

27:31: "Then Paul said to the Centurion and the soldiers, ‘Unless these men stay with the ship, you cannot be saved.’"

Analysis: Clearly, Hal Steinbrenner (Paul) is telling Cashman to keep the Centurion (Mariano Rivera) and the young pitchers, Robertson, Joba, Phil along with the Philistine prospects. If the Yankees trade them, we won't save any games.

Acts 27:32: "So the soldiers cut the ropes that held the lifeboat and let it fall away."

Analysis: The Yankees "cut the ropes" to Rafael Soriano – (the lifeboat) and "let it fall away." And the guy is gone.


So what next? 


Acts 27:33: "Just before dawn Paul urged them all to eat. ''For the last fourteen days,' he said, 'you have been in constant suspense and have gone without food--you haven't eaten anything.' "


That’s right, folks. A Yankee move is coming. We haven't eaten for 14 days.  Not even an Eli Whiteside. It's going to happeneth, folks. We're going to sign or trade for somebody soon.

And happy Arod Surgery Day!

The karma of the former expos is coming back in strong spirit to Rizzo and the Nats. Soriano once pitched in Seattle who enjoyed salary crossroads with salary dumps in Big Unit and Jeff Fassero as time Yanx did with John Wetteland ! Fernando Seiguinoil was not the next Chili Davis!!!
Now the Nats have that bullpen the 94 Expos would have rolled over Buck's 94 Yanx! No throwing a Steve Rogers in a game 7 as in 1981. Rick Monday and Uncle Tommy- boo! Hiss! Lol!

And the Lord spoke in a loud voice, "YOUKILIS! Prostrate yourself for you have violated the Holy of Holies. You dare stand upon the place where my servant Graig Nettles smote the possessed man Bill Lee? YOUKILIS! You are not worthy to untie the cleats of Charlie Hayes. Who has brought the blasphemous balding beast into Yankee Stadium? Who will pay the price of blasphemy?"

Who here wants a Bartelo Colon like desk for Justin
Upton???? 3 - 4 kids for a ballyhooed corner outfielder
Who plays in front of transient fans and those rooting against the D- backs dreaming of the next 18 golf holes the next day....

I know who you are, "Anonymous"- you're that smart-ass bat boy we had on the Montreal Expos team in 1986, right? You still trying to hustle college girls in mohair sweaters?

Baby Moses may be in the market to move Scott Hairston for Yanx kids if Junior Lake or another Cubs farmhand OF reaches Waveland !???
Who is to say that Cantzler contributes off the bench while Melky Mess makes a certain Cal Berkeey grad happy in Georgia. ???? Or that Cuban outfielder in SWB farm roster??

How can Yanx fans say that a defending ALEast champ is not sexy or interesting. Face it- at least the grunts in Boston are not wearing pin stripes!
A farm system almost ready to harvest. One new contract for Cano. Consistency for Hughes and Joba.
And look! Dan Johnson sitting on the bench. Every goon squad needs a Johnson. Mel brooks - blazing saddles !

Not a bad SWB outfield. The Cuban. RM, Flores , Neal. And Z Amonte. Sure beats some of the other orgs 4-A tandems.
