Nady Signs with Cubs, Yankees Respond with Greg Golson

It appears that outfielder Xavier Nady has signed a $3.3 million contract with the Cubs which has $2 million extra in incentives. In response, Brian Cashman quickly paused his Tetris game, and got on the phone. 15 minutes later, outfielder Greg Golson was on his way to the Yankees.

"I just wanted to upstage Nady's big announcement so I signed Greg Golson. Who the (expletive deleted) is Greg Golson?" Explained General Manager Brian Cashman.

Greg Golson is a triple A player who appears to have a lot of tools. Unfortunately, none of them are baseball related. Though he will be added to the 40 man roster, he has options which will basically ensure he stays down in triple A where the Yankees like to store outfielders.

"Its kind of like when you look in the fridge, and there's a Bud, Miller light, and Coors. No matter what you choose its going to suck, but since all the Sam Adams is gone, it will just have to do." Described Cashman.

Asked if he was still talking about outfielders, Cashman explained further:

"Remember that time I got Nick Swisher for Wilson Betemit? That was awesome."

Its nice to have a guy with tools around so that when Arod gets jealous and breaks Jeter's toys, there is some one who can fix them. Greg Olson will be this year's MVP because Jeter will suffer fewer days with broken toys, even though his joy will cause Arod to break more than usual.

If Cashman made a move to respond to a move made by any of the other teams the Yankees roster would have at least 100 people on it by now.

I'm glad Cashman played Tetris rather than signed Nady. Giving that much $ to Nady is nuts. He has had two TJs. His arm is held together with the sinews of multiple cadavers.

However, Greg Golson sounds like a made up name and I question whether he is real.

You're right, Rich, it does sound made up. Soon they'll sign Catch N. Throw to a minor league deal.
