Tis a Sad Day: Yankees Deal Melky

With all that's happened since my last post, you're probably wondering why I'd lead off with this story. As a Yankee fan, I'm truly saddened by the transaction that sent Melky Cabrera to the Brewers for Mike Cameron. I still don't see the sense behind this deal. If the Yankees were getting a decent young pitcher in return, maybe. But, if all this was was a tide-us-over-until-whatever (more time for AJax, etc.), keeping Cabrerra, a YOUNG better than decent CF'er, made the most and cheapest sense. I hope this doesn't throw Robinson Cano back or he'll be gone too. Bye, bye Melky. Good luck to you.
