STAR WARS! STAR WARS! STAR WARS! STAR WARS! STAR WARS! Star Wars comes out today! Oh right, this is a baseball blog.
Yesterday the baseball world got some news after the Reds, Dodgers, and White Sox completed a three team trade that saw prospects being shipped around and Todd Frazier go to Chicago. Brian Cashman sat quiet for another day to even further build up the big move he's (hopefully) going to make. There were some that wanted Frazier to come to the Bronx to replace Headley after his down year, but Cashman never even tried to get the "Toddfather." The hope, not unreasonably so, is that Headley will be able to recover his defensive abilities which made him such a valuable player and get over his case of the yips. As far as any other moves are concerned, maybe Cashman needs to see Star Wars for inspiration.
Comments of the Day
Justin Wilson's gone?! Season's over! Pack it up and try again in 2017!
Can't win with some people.
PSA PSA time: The staff here is doing its best to bring you content during an otherwise very quiet off-season. It's not like you're paying for the stuff we provide, and we know that the Yankees aren't spending but we're just exploring if certain free agents could be a fit or not. Complaining about free content and taking your frustrations about what the Yankees are doing (or rather what they aren't doing) doesn't get you anywhere, and just seems unnecessary to people who are doing hard work.

I imagine this is Cashman when he finally gets wind of a trade he likes.

Song of the Day
Duel of the Fates by John Williams
Sci-Fi/Fantasy Star Wars week on Pinstripe Alley. Today's song comes from the Phantom Menace, which really has no purpose as a film in the overall plot of the saga, but was better than Attack of the Clones for giving us podracing and this piece that goes over the final battle between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Qui-Gon Jinn.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. STAR WARS! STAR WARS! STAR WARS! ...did I mention there's a new Star Wars movie? Also, please remember that not everyone will see the movie at the same time, so remember to use the spoiler tag when/if discussing the movie.
