Scraps



Are you done with Embree? Gonna have any more of that Bellhorn? Can we have them now? Please? Please?

[Update:I realize that this seems really cold toward a couple of guys who contributed to our WS victory last year. It wasn't meant to. I am just in absolute shock that the Yanks have scooped up not 1, but 2 of our former players - and so quickly. Theo has good reasons for letting folks go. What makes Cashman think that our former guys are going to perform any better in pinstripes? Embree has already proven that he's the same struggling reliever. Do they think that Bellhorn will suddenly stop striking out? Or strike out considerably less? Last I checked, the Yankees' weak spot was pitching. Anyway, I am having a tough time picturing Mark in a Yankee uniform.]

I did see Bellhorn in Pinstripes this morning, short hair and all. maybe they think he'll be a good lead walkman. Jijax

Peter - They aren't mine, but they are pretty sweet looking, huh?

Jijax - I honestly don't know what they think they are getting with Bellhorn, besides a little better 2nd base defense. A bit of an upgrade from Cano. But, still, will Mark become their full time 2nd baseman? The whole thing is so weird. He won't be in pinstripes come spring training, even if he does get a couple of clutch hits. I'll miss his pouty ways. But not his strike outs.

the arachnid uniform is not flattering Marky-mark at all. He looks chalky and grumpy.

Well, he'd better get used to the grumpiness. Because there's no fun in Yankee Town. It's against the rules.
