A-Rod in Pinstripes

So the best player in baseball is going to be a Yankee. Pardon me while I puke. And if I find this objectionable, I wonder how many Red Sox fans will be jumping out of tall buildings when this deal goes through. Eric McErlain over at Off Wing Opinion has a good roundup of the reaction to the news.

Famed Yankee-Hater Jim Caple reacts with a Bronx cheer for Rangers owner Tom Hicks:

There are eight kinds of idiots in the world but you just won the crown, Tommy. You are going to pay the Yankees $67 million to put the league's best player in their lineup.

UPDATE 2/16: As usual, Peter Gammons has the best inside insight.
