Great News!

So, it seems like a done deal that the Yankees have traded with the Cubs for Alfonso Soriano. This is great news for a number of reasons:

  1. Now every day will be Old Timer's Day at Yankee Stadium
  2. It will help the Yankees lock up the one category where they lead the league: number of players eligible for Social Security.
  3. His .287 OBP is a whole .002 improvement over current Yankee leftfielder Vernon Wells.
  4. He provides a vital link back to the Casey Stengel era Yankees.  He can teach the under 35 set how the Bombers won back in the day!
  5. He and Andy Pettitte can combine forces and buy Metamucil in bulk.
  6. He'll have a better chance in NY of getting signed up to appear in a Cialis commercial.
  7. In 2004, the Yankees traded him to the Rangers for A-Rod.  Now that he is back *and* A-Rod is still around, it should be blindingly obvious NY won that trade!
  8. With Curtis Granderson out of the lineup, the Yankees don't strike out nearly enough.
