Oy! Yankees Sign Hot Israeli Prospects

From the wires:

"The New York Yankees have signed outfielder Jason Rees and catcher Eladio Rodriguez to minor league contracts. Both players participated in the Israel Baseball League's inaugural season in 2007."

The outfielder is 23, and the catcher, a former Redsocks farm hand, is 28.

That's right.

Twenty-three and twenty-eight.

They'll probably play in the lower minors.

Twenty-three and twenty-eight.

Do you ever get the feeling that Boston doesn't really have to be so smart to finish ahead of us?

Do they speak Hebrew?

Why do I get the feeling that Gene Michael has been sent to jail? He never made idiotic moves like these.

We sign Kai Igawa , two chinese bean farmers and now two hispanic Israelis?
