PSA Comments of the Day 12/4/15: Release the Maeken

Kenta Maeda has been posted. Our pun game is ready.

I love his nickname of "Maeken"

Brian Cashman appeared on the Michael Kay show yesterday and gave us little to no information regarding the Yankees' offseason plans. While divulging details would break the code of the GM ninja, it would have been nice to get a little hint at what the overall plan is for next season. For all we know, doing nothing is the plan. Relying on bounce back years from players worked for the majority of last year, but it's still a bold plan nonetheless. Perhaps trying that again is the best plan at this stage. Who knows? The waiting is the hardest part.

Meanwhile, the Hiroshima Carp will post their ace pitcher Kenta Maeda for MLB teams to bid on. Maeda, a right-handed pitcher, will be 28 years old next April. He won his second Sawamura Award this season, which is similar to our Cy Young award. It is unclear what the posting fee will be, but it is expected to be $20 million. Maeda, or Maeken as his fans called him, will be an interesting topic of discussion this offseason. If we are to believe Cashman, the Yankees are not looking to sign any free agents and therefore will probably not be interested in paying top dollar for him. Still, it never hurts to ask. Think of the pun potential. I have no problem with him Maeken lots of Hal's money.

Comments of the Day

Perhaps we shouldn't allow LTL access to fire.

GIF of the Day

That's just how I feel at times.

Honorable Mod Mention

Not much honor. Sorry.

Fun Questions

  • Of the above eight, yes EIGHT, new Diamondbacks uniforms, which ones need a touch of fire the most? And by fire, I mean burning them.
  • If you're Brian Cashman, how much do you offer Maeken?

Song of the Day

Hearts on Fire by John Cafferty

It's Fire week on Pinstripe Alley. Since I started this week with a song in the movie Creed, I figure I'd bring it back to another Rocky movie song. As always, please link us your song of the day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. Only a couple more days until the Winter Meetings. Yay.
