PSA Comments of the Day 2/9/15: Padres raise Shields

New, comments

The Yankees were being honest about not being interested in James Shields, as he will be taking his pitching talents to the Padres. Pitchers and catchers report in Gritty Gutty Brett Gardner days.

BANG BANG!!

Looks like we will see Shields in San Diego.

It's better if you read what I just type above to the tune of the Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego? theme song by Rockapella. Last night, the San Diego Padres reportedly agreed to terms with James Shields. The deal is for four years, supposedly in the $72-$78 million dollar range. Perhaps more info will be revealed before this post goes up. In any case, Shields will not be coming to the Yankees.

Comments of the Day

A possible tagline: "This spring, you'll smell a lot more than romance!" Perhaps you can come up with a better tagline!

There is still hope for CC Sabathia. Perhaps just a fool's hope though.

GIF of the Day

T'was no GIF yesterday, ladies and gentlemen.

Honorable Mod Mention

Harlan won the only two COTD awards yesterday, so he earns the HMM award for a second day in a row.

Fun Questions
  • If you were running the Yankees, would you have given James Shields that kind of deal?
  • More romantic dinner: Home cooked meal, night out at a favorite/nice restaurant, White Castle's Valentine's Day Special, or other?
Song of the Day

I'm not gonna lie, I cannot resist singing this song. Especially around the end of it. I've definitely gotten some looks when people drive past me on the highway. As always, please link us your Song of the Day.

Feel free to use this as your open thread for the day. How do you feel now that Shields is in San Diego?
