Richie Sexson, who has better stats than "all star" Jason Varitek (I am relentless), was recently cut by the Seattle Mariners. When the rumor first broke that he'd be cut, I mentioned the Yankees as a possible suitor.
Well, I made a damn good call. B-Cash has confirmed that the Yanks are interested in bringing Big Sexy to the Bronx after he clears waivers.
He'll cost a pro-rated minimum of $162K, so not much of a risk there. He may be shitting instead of hitting this year, but he's still destroying lefties. Destroying!
A player this cheap would be great on the bench, especially since our only real first baseman is Jason Giambi, and we don't hit lefties all that well.
A great fit at a great price! Bring him home! (In other news, we also signed ex-Yank Eric Milton to a minor league deal.)
Time for a Richie Sexson joke!
Q: What is the opposite of Richie Sexson?
