Yankees buying abandoned Wells

Obviously, the devil is in the details.

But did Cashman just trade away another Austin Jackson, Tyler Clippard or Ian Kennedy? (Not to mention Jesus.)

Lou Pinella would sure hate to use the r-word. Maybe there's a Hitler comparison?

Waiting to learn what we gave...

Whatever we gave it wasn't worth it. Remember when we traded for Austin Kearns? Zach McAllister is the Indians' number 4 starter. Kearns wasn't resigned after 2009, and he's a minor leaguer now with the Marlins.

Kill me.

Oh, and why didn't we just keep Andruw Jones? What's the difference between Jones and Wells? At least Jones was buddies with Jeter. He made Jeter smile that beautiful, wonderful smile.

OH! This also means we have to pay Wells next year WHEN OUR PAYROLL IS LIMITED. I don't care if the Angels pay 99% of the contract. We're still devoting limited resources to a useless player.

Oh, no! I just got the tweet! Me and Melky Mesa to the Angels for Vernon "Dry" Wells! Please, Brian, when I am in my late 30s and contemplating Tommy John surgery, bring me back to the Bronx! I promise even when I am aged and injured, I will pitch as well for you as Pedro Feliciano did.

Bennyboy, you are absolutely right. The Austin Kearns trade exemplifies the HORROR. How many times did we see that bum Kearns strike out? If he didn't strike out, he grounded into a double-play. And usually with men in scoring position. Austin Kearns- this generation's Billy Sample. Argh! I hate the guy, and Vernon Wells will be just as bad.

August 20, 2010: the New York Yankees sent Zach McAllister to the Cleveland Indians to complete an earlier deal made on July 30, 2010. July 30, 2010: The New York Yankees sent a player to be named later to the Cleveland Indians for Austin Kearns.

I would cripple Brian Cashman, but he's crippled already . . . .

I feel really bad for you Yankee fans, honestly. May I make a recommendation for a (now former) teammate? Daisuke Matsuzaka would really fit in with the team you are assembling in the Bronx. He doesn't have a lot going on presently, he has the years, the baggage and the nagging injuries to dignify 2013 as the pinnacle of the Cashman Era.
