Comment of the Day: The Yankees are having lots of babies

17 Comments

This from reader CG in the Mark Teixeria’s-wife-is-having-a-baby-thread:

Fun fact: CC and his wife had a baby a few days ago. Teixeira and his wife are having a baby any day now. Around 9 months ago the Yanks won the World Series.

You know what he’s saying, right? I mean, I don’t have to spell it out for you, do I?  Fine, I will: The Yankees are so phat with money that they’re now giving players live human children as World Series bonuses!

Is there nothing Hal Steinbrenner can’t buy?!!!

The Red Sox have re-signed first baseman Mitch Moreland to a two-year contract, the club announced on Monday. According to Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, the total value of the deal is $13 million and Moreland can earn more through performance incentives.

Moreland, 32, hit .246/.326/.443 with 22 home runs and 79 RBI in 576 plate appearances with the Red Sox in 2017. With Moreland back in the fold, the Red Sox are out of the running for free agent Eric Hosmer.

While Moreland doesn’t have the best bat among first basemen, he plays good defense. His return also means the Red Sox can safely stow Hanley Ramirez back in the DH role.
