NO! Red Sox… do NOT sign Kevin Gregg!!!!

Ken Rosenthal is pretty good at his job… but PLEASE be wrong with this Tweet!
Seriously Red Sox… why bring him in? For MULTI YEARS?

You want multiyears?
How about 2008 when he all but sabotaged the Marlins playoff run? I wrote about that when I trashed the Cubs for signing him.

He was awful with the Cubs in 2009. I wrote about that when I trashed the Blue Jays for signing him.

He was mediocre with the Blue Jays in 2010. I wrote about that when I trashed him last year.

Don’t do it, Red Sox! Let some other team be a chump and bring him aboard. There is NO NEED for this. He will make Eric Gagne look like Mariano Rivera.

Let the Pirates, Nationals, Orioles or Mariners get in the mix.

For EVERYONE’S sake.

(Oh Lord make this not happen.)

The Ulti-MET insult to Milton Bradley

So Oliver Perez got ROCKED again… by the Washington Nationals no less. And one of the worst contract signings in history rages on in Queens.

And a terrific Met fan, the brilliant Emmy nominated comedy writer Andres Du Bouchet posted as his Facebook status update “Ok Mets. Please release Ollie and eat his salary. I’m begging you. You can replace him with a T-ball tee.”

So I remembered my insane Blockbuster Trade post from last winter. Essentially it was my 9 team, 11 player swap as viturally every jaw droppingly bad contract was swapped for each other.

I had the Cubs getting Carlos Silva for Milton Bradley… which of course happened.
But in my trade, Bradley was sent off to the Mets for Oliver Perez. (The Mets actually DID pick up Gary Matthews Jr, who was also in my proposed blockbuster.)

But remembering the Perez for Bradley part of the deal, I wrote to Andres.

“Would you trade Perez for Milton Bradley?”

He responded right away “No.”

Remember, Andres had just established the fair market value of Perez to be a batting tee!

So by THAT logic, Bradley’s trade value is LESS than a batting tee. If the Mariners called a team and said “We’ll send you Milton Bradley and we want a batting tee in exchange” the second team would say “You need to sweeten the pot!”

I can think of no bigger insult.

Now please enjoy Andres in a sketch from The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. He is in the Arab outfit.
