Visual approximation of what’s left in Lyle Overbay’s bat.

Nothing against Lyle Overbay– who, much like Vernon Wells before him, both now and back in the off-season between 2006 and 2007, is maligned unfairly for little more than signing a contract that somebody put in front of him and then struggling to live up to it– and not to keep tempting the baseball gods with giddiness over what the Yankees are doing, but tonight [chortle!] check out what [guffaw!] what the latest big [snort!] move on the horizon for [heeeee!] the Bronx Bombers might be.

From Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe earlier today:

The Yankees may need a lefthanded compliment to Juan Rivera at first base. Yankee scouts have been watching Overbay closely.

Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees

Surely by now you’ve heard about the “report”– or whatever you want to call it– that surfaced yesterday at a site called Dog And Pony Show, where writer Joe Bisceglie has given us his word– and not a whole hell of a lot else– that A-Rod, Robinson Cano, Ryan Braun, and Curtis Granderson will all be suspended for failed PED tests this season.

It’s a motherfucker of a bold claim, and would be a hell of a thing, if true– a Yankee-derailing possibility certain Jays fans must be salivating over– but… is there really value in making the effort to envision a world in which this is something that’s really about to go down? Absolutely not.

I mean, I don’t want to pretend I’m so offended by the quasi-journalism of it that I couldn’t possibly even hold my nose long enough to acknowledge the fact that this stuff is out there– there’s a lot that’s interesting going on in this story, regardless– but there’s just isn’t nearly enough information, or corroboration from additional sources, of what he’s telling us, to start doing something crazy like actually believing it.
