Greatest Trade That Ever Wasn't

It's fun to do this every so often, and last night's game provides the perfect opportunity.

0-for-3. Two fielding errors. A .259 batting average. One "fan" on the Yankees MLB message board called him "so freaking unclutch it isnt funny." A column headline in the New York Post calls him "E-Rod" and even the team's owner is p*ssed.

Such are the life and times of Alex Rodriguez against the Red Sox, the team that almost got him. In the meantime, the player we would have traded to get him went 2-for-4 with a home run and 2 RBI. The man playing the position Rodriguez would have had with the Sox went was 2-for-4 with a home run and 3 RBI. And A-Rod's counterpart at his current position was 2-for-6 and is currently batting .339.

He may be the best five-tool player alive, but we continue to be glad that trade fell apart. And we don't need his purple lips either.

& last night, I was in that giant "Toilet", where the "Fans" only stay for victories, while Red Sox Fans stayed on unto the end.

I, unfortunately got to see "HGH GiamBALCO" & "A-Slap" & wondered just what game Mr Nipper was watching?

Or was he watching all the several hundred ejections from the "Toilet", as That Part of The Bronx, is?

I will be overwhelmed with joy, when that "Toilet" comes down.
