The Blue Jays designated Shea Hillenbrand for assignment? I'm sure they will work out a trade in the next 10 days (or maybe they already have and needed a roster space). I'm sure he will take shots at everyone on the way out. Like when he called Theo a fag. Earlier this year, he did show signs of maturity and reconciliation toward Boston, expressing regret for the fag comment and saying how much he missed Boston. But this tirade that got him cut along with his spat with Beckett, show he really has not grown up that much. So the Sox would be wise to not make a move to try to get him as a backup. The Yanks may have interest, but if the guy was pissed over not being in the lineup one day, he probably won't want to be a role player.
Speaking of the Yankees, is it just me or does the current state of Yankee propoganda remind anyone of this past offseason. All we keep hearing is that the team is playing well, they are winning, Melky is doing great, Matsui is progressing. And they are starting to say things like they don't feel the need to make the move for Abreu. All of this reminds me of this offseason when they kept talking about Crosby being the man in CF. Right up to the day they signed Damon. So let's all prepare ourselves for the Abreu to MFY trade happening early next week. If I was Pat Gillick, I would make the Yanks take Abreu and Burrell to clear all that salary.
