Congratu-fucking-lations ex-pitcher and apparent New York Yankee cock-gobbler Jeff Nelson, for your world-beating MLB Network
Yankee knob-shining analysis of the rumours that the Jays have won the bidding for Yu Darvish.
“Well, once you’ve read that the Blue Jays could have blown everybody out of the water, for one reason– like you’ve said– is to get the Yankees off of him,” he crowed.
“With Toronto, you just mentioned, Joe, if they go and they win the posting, they have no intentions of signing him, probably,” he added. “In spending that money you’re talking, it’s up where Matsuzaka was, that’s over $100-million. You got $50- or $60- or whatever it costs for this posting fee for Darvish, and now you’re going to have to sign this guy probably to another $50- or $60-million deal, so I can’t see Toronto doing that. So they probably did for a little bit of a gamesmanship, playing a little poker, and saying, ‘you know what, I don’t have any intention, but I’m keeping him away from everybody else,” and then he goes back to Japan because those thirty days are up and it’s over.”
Thankfully for fans of sanity, Joe Sheehan was there next to him to remind Nelson that the Jays, while maybe not a high payroll club, are certainly a deep-pocketed one. Though he didn’t quite go as far as I might have in, y’know, curbstomping Nelson in his ridiculous fucking moron-place.
See for yourself…
