With the pick ups of Matt Thornton and Brian Roberts, the Yankees continue their trend of getting older, more brittle, and overall worse than they were last year. I can only assume that's their organizational mandate and orienting philosophy. Which is why I find it so odd that they haven't announced the Carlos Beltran deal yet. How bad are this guy's knees that even the Yankees are hitting pause? I mean, I know there's no cartilage there but maybe it's even worse than that. To give the Yankees pause, I can only assume Beltran no longer has knees, and that his femur has fused to his lower leg bones, the names of which I am completely and utterly ignorant. But I'm not so ignorant as to let Google have a record of my having searched 'names of lower leg bones'. Employers read that $#!% nowadays and I'm not going to risk future employment opportunities for the sake of self-improvement. #capitalism.
