I was asking for something for us to talk about, and yesterday I got that wish. Not one, but two bits of interesting facts and rumors graced our pinstriped world. The first bit, and the most important one, is that Cuban infield prospect Yoan Moncada has been officially cleared to sign with a team. So, you know, get on that Cashman. The second bit, mainly a Yankee rumor at this point, is that James Shields will be signed by a team sometime this week. Whether or not the Yankees decide to sign Shields has be bandied about by a few members of the baseball media. All will hopefully be revealed shortly.
Comments of the Day
Interesting points brought up in John Beck's article about overrated Yankees.
As we've discussed before, Melky Cabrera is a prime example of the real lack of repercussions that come from taking PEDs.
Pinstripe Alley's regular entomologist long time listener, ladies and gentlemen!
GIF of the Day
Someone claimed that Bernie Williams was overrated. This was my reaction.
Honorable Mod Mention
There wasn't much honorable content yesterday. However, Andrew probably was the least honorable by making us relive some of the worst managerial moments in recent Yankee history. Thanks a lot, Andrew!
- Since he wouldn't be the ace on the Yankees staff, replace "Big Game" with something else for James Shields.
- If you could do any event in the Winter Olympics, which one would you choose?
I probably could have used 2 Unlimited songs for the majority of Sports Theme Week. Apparently, some NHL Teams use this song to signal a Power Play. Bold choice! As always, please link us your Song of the Day.
Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. How badly do you want James Shields? How badly do you want Yoan Moncada?
Do you feel alright?
