They Yanks expect to activate him soon to DH.

I just don't know how good he will do or how long it will last. I read on a report that he is swinging a bat now with limited pain. Limited pain still isn't pain free.

Plus, having Nady DH really cuts down on his value. It's not like he's as good as his predecessor, Giambi.

That's really good news to me. I like Nady as a player. He's the only Yankee that I'll find myself rooting for.

Unlike Wilton, I am not about to root against a player who I once rooted for, just to rationalize the salary dumping, money stealing, amusement park running, lying, spinning,
irresponsible joke of an owner.

I'd be willing to bet Wilton could give a rats ass about who you root for or root against. Hey buddy, the Yankees are out there for you. They spend large amounts of money and "buy" every player you want, so why not just transfer your "loyalty" (which is suspect anyway) to the Steinbrenner family, "the greatest ownership group in baseball."

Otherwise, just keep moving, go back over to the CIA.

Now there is a suggestion that should be taken seriously. I'm certain that there are Yankee fans who think the same and would happily take Rod into there message boards. I'll help pay for the one way ticket (about $50.00).

I hope Nady can contribute. Good player, did well for the Pirates, made the team better.

Roberto Hernandez + Oliver Perez = Xavier Nady = Ross Ohlendorf, Jeff Karstens, Jose Tabata, and Daniel McCutchen.

To be honest, I never really liked Nady that much to begin with. That said, I don't root against players to rationalize decisions. Nady could be tearing it up right now and I'd still say that trading him was a good decision.

Best match I've seen in a long time. Though how do you include McClutchen in that?

DANIEL McCutchen....the PITCHER included in the trade, not the OF!

Was the Daniel there before? If so then I am a moron.

If Bob Nutting traded away Manny Ramirez, Alex Rodriguez, Jason Veritek, Albert Pujols, and Carlos Beltran for a big lump of shit, you would say it was a good decision. :lol:

Here I was ready to agree with Rod for once, only to discover he never liked Nady.

I do and wish him only the best.

Actually, the "never liked Nady" quote was not mine, but of course Wilton.

I always liked Nady, and I still do. I hope X tears it up when he gets well.

The quote thing misfired on me there.

NO, Daniel McCutchen was one of the players acquired from the Yankees, along with Karstens, Ohlendorf, and Tabata, for Nady and Marte. As much as I like Nady, that already is a plus trade for the Bucs.
