Crumbling Apart, We Sign a LH Firstbaseman

Ian Kennedy has a mercy injury, Joba Chamberlain is preparing to blow out his arm, and LaToya Hawkins is flat-out pitiful...

So what did we do yesterday?

The Yankees signed the veteran first baseman Ben Broussard to a minor-league contract and assigned him to Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Broussard, 31, has played seven seasons in the majors, mostly for the Cleveland Indians. He hit .159 with three homers in 26 games for the Texas Rangers this season.

Yep. We added to our fleet of Hummers. We went out and bought a new evening gown.

We signed a slow, LH firstbaseman -- our 8th inning "bridge" to Kelly Ensberg.

Let's see now, there's Giambi, Duncan, Ensberg, Betemit, Posada, Damon...

It's good to know we're not developing anybody young at the position.

Wait! IDEA: Switch Joba to firstbase?

Are you sure Joba does not hit left-handed?

We need all the hopeless retreads we can get.

At least we can have a record for the weakest hitting, worst fielding first basemen in the history of the game.

Maybe we can snare a few more in the upcoming amateur draft.

They're going to combine all of the 1st basemen together and make a super 1st basemen. Think Voltron or something.
