I have no real source for this but who cares. Camp Tiger Claw says that Buster Olney says that the Yankees traded for Detroit catcher Pudge Rodriguez.

UPDATE: Kevin Kennedy and Rob Dibble are playing Pudge highlight clips on XM 175 - MLB Home Plate.

UPDATE TWO: Kevin Kennedy says this is a great trade for the Yankees. This can only mean: it's a horrid trade.

UPDATE THREE: THE YANKEES GOT RID OF KYLE FARNSWORTH! This means Brandon Inge will have to catch for the Tigers EVERYDAY now.

UPDATE FOUR: The Yankees acquired someone named Pudge and yet Peter Abraham was nowhere near his computer.

UPDATE FIVE: Rob Dibble doesn't think the Yankees are done trading and that they'll probably pick up a pitcher. A Yankee fan calls in a says, "Great show." I turned off my radio. Also, MLB.com has a story up.

who did they give up?

UPDATE THREE: Kevin Kennedy says Jason Giambi is a copycat, and that he had a terrible moustache long before the Giambino did.

/takes cyanide pill for using "the giambino" in a comment

Farnsworth and Leyland....? Let the comedy ensue.

OH MY GOD

NO WORDS

Update 5 - Kevin Kennedy played the principal in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

I guess Farnsy's the new closer over in Detroit.

Rob's giddier than Michael Jackson in a Build-a-Bear store.

/That's right I went there

Somewhere, Sal Fasano cries through his robustly-applied eyeblack.

FARNSWORD BETTER NOT BE A HOMO IN THE LOCKER ROOM AND HE BETTER NOT FUCK UP THE CLOSER ROLE LKE A HOMO

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT GUYS CRY TO.

Rob,

You think closer? I'm not sure it won't be Farnsy as a set-up or a rotation with Rodney still.

Even factoring in age and salary, trading Pudge (with an expiring contract!) away for Farnsworth straight up would be grounds for dismissal in most fantasy leagues in America, if not execution.

I'm with Jerkwheat. Rodney has the more dynamic closer stuff.

I was just making a stab in the dark. I agree with Todd Jones though. Farnsword better keep it real.

[furiously hitting F5]

Way to live glog this trade.

As an Indians fan I wholeheartedly approve of Farnsworth going to Detroit.

Detroit's metal fans cower.

@ Chief Wahoo

As a WoW commenter, I wholeheartedly approve your use of the ESPN Featured Comment of the Day template for that comment.
