When rumors first began circulating about a deal involving Melky Cabrera, Mike Gonzalez and Adam LaRoche last month I was less than thrilled. Well, the deal was done today, but Melky was taken out of the equation. The Pirates traded Gonzalez to the Braves straight up for Adam LaRoche.
At least for now, it looks like Melky is going to be a Yankee this season, and thank God for that. The "Got Melky?" t-shirt my wife bought me for Christmas will be in full effect at the Stadium come April.
