Chien-Ming Wang will be out for around 10 weeks with a sprain of the mid foot. During that time he'll be in a protective boot and his activities will be limited. "We told him he would have to lay off kicking people for a while," said doctors at the top secret military medical facility where Wang was examined and fitted for a boot. "They said I can no longer engage in my favorite hobby of attacking merchant vessels in the Caribbean," lamented Wang through his interpreter, Robinson Cano. "I'm also not allowed to bake." Asked what he plans to do for the next six weeks until he can start throwing again, Wang responded, "I'll probably go to my favorite blog Respect Jeter's Gangster."
The Yanks will now have to decide whether to trade for an arm (Arroyo and Sabathia have come up as possibilities) or whether to try and make up for Wang's lost production from within. Asked for comment, Hank Steinbrenner said he wanted Johan Santana and that he believed a deal should be made with the Mets. Cashman, when asked to respond, simply took another swig from that "water" bottle he's taken to carrying around with him since Hank became the boss.
Should we trade for Sabathia? Arroyo? Should we try to address the deficit internally? What do you guys think?
