Sometimes Mike really does amaze me. We all know he is fascinated with Nate McLouth of the Pirates. But here's what he just had to say about him:
"If you wanted the perfect player for the Yankees, McLouth on Pittsburgh is the perfect Yankee player. He's a younger version, more powerful version of Damon, in his prime...plays centerfield, has a perfect Yankee Stadium homerun swing that he could actually hit 25-30 homeruns...bat leadoff, hit .280...I would be all over the Pirates to trade for him..."
Now Mikey, why in the F'ing world would the Pirates trade McLouth? He is making $425,000 a year and is 26 years old. Also, if you ever did a little bit of research before making absurd statements, you would have seen this nugget:
"The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports that the Pirates have "a plan in place" to offer long-term contract extensions to both Nate McLouth and Ryan Doumit."
So Mike, WHY, WHY, WHY is Pittsburgh gonna give you McLouth? Cause you fleeced them once doesn't mean it's gonna happen again. Why stop there? Call Tampuh and see about getting Longoria and Kazmir. Call the Giants about Lincecum. Get the Reds on the line and see about Volquez...
