Is “Sean Gallagher” a pseudonym for Josh Vitters?

Because otherwise this Rich Harden trade makes me very, very sad.

I guess it makes sense that you can’t get a #3 overall pick with a massive ceiling who’s still like 19 years old for a pitcher who’s one throw away from launching his right arm into the stands, but still.  Mr. Harden was an absolute joy to watch — when he was on the mound, which unfortunately wasn’t all that often — and he will certainly be missed in Oakland.

But realistically, if he goes down one more time, Billy Beane and the A’s would never get anything for him, and in this case they got three ML-ready players and a second-round pick from last year, which ain’t too bad. It’s not ideal but it is what it is, and you gotta figure Harden’s just not going to make a full season. He was complaining of a “dead arm” a couple starts ago, so maybe this is sell-high time.

In other news, A-Rod’s divorce has been a boon for this blog. Sorry, buddy. Hope you get to keep the house.

Traffic — the good kind (not the kind that makes you late for stuff)(although usually I’m late for other reasons and just use it as an excuse)(it’s nothing personal)

Wow. Yesterday was the busiest day this stupid little blog has ever seen, topping the day I sent this URL to my friends and asked them to check it out and many of them did so out of annoyed politeness. It would appear that the photo of A-Rod getting rubbed down is quite popular.

I would just like to take this moment to sincerely apologize for those of you who’ve visited this site hoping to find something useful/informative. (Although if you’re googling “a rod shirtless” or “retarded people” — which many of you are — you’re probably not all that disappointed.) But yeah, it’s mostly just me complaining about stuff. At least I usually spell stuff right. Bloggers are all full of shit anyway.

A-Rod > Jeter, Pt. 4,329,896

Okay, I’m tired of trying to convince retarded people that Alex Rodriguez is a much better player than Derek Jeter, but in the midst of this latest fiasco, can we admit that articles like this at least hint that Jeter is a primadonna not to be upset for fear of him melting down in hissyfits? That if he is forced to acknowledge the blatantly obvious fact that A-Rod is an insanely better player than he is that he’ll become this venomous cancer and destroy the Yanks?

They’re saying it’s bad for chemistry reasons – Passan even cites studies that show Jeter is one of the worst fielders at his position – but fuck OFF with that. Jeter should have moved to second base when A-Rod came over anyway. Should a captain worry about shit like that? I think not.

And just look at that picture. A-Rod is not afraid to let shirtless old men rub him up. Jeter is a pansy.
