    Now, if the Yankees can only trade for Scott Hairston, then we can start having flashbacks to 1973 when the Yankees had Felipe and Matty Alou…

      Boston trades for V-Mart and gives up next to nothing and we get Jerry Hairston?

      Um…I like Brian Cashman but I’m underwhelmed with this response to adding the best bat at the deadline…

      Seems like RS should have had to give up either Bucholz or Bard or both. I don’t mind them getting VM but it should have been more painful. Nevertheless, it would have been more significant if they had gotten Lee or Halladay.

      So, Hairston is supposed to be an asset because he is “versatile.”

      Yeah, he’s bad a choice at 2B, he’s a bad choice at SS, he’s a bad choice at 3B, he’s a bad choice at LF, he’s a bad choice at CF and he’s a bad choice at RF.

      But, in the world of baseball, as long as you are bad at multiple positions, that makes you versatile, so people want you.

      Can you imagine what the world will be like if we applied to other professions?

      This doctor kills people with appendectomies, his cureable cancer patients all die the next day, anyone who comes in with a broken leg leaves the room with rigor mortis … oh, that’s versatile, let’s go to him.

      This lawyer will get you sued for $1 million if you have a car crash and lose the case, will lose your children for you in a divorce and will get you the death penalty if you are caught spitting on the side walk … oh, that’s versatile, let’s hire him.
