Nick hasn’t done his blog-and-news roundup in a while, and I ran across some interesting things while waiting for the wife to come home last night:
- Nick Pinto reports that WFAN callers want an A-Rod trade, perhaps for Tejada so they can transfer him to third. I guess it’s true: Lowell’s bettah.
- An Over the Monster diarist says Manny Delcarmen’s got what it takes to be next year’s closer. While I’d like to make it through 2006 with Delcarmen as our 7th-inning guy, I could see him stepping into that role — accuming he keeps up his recent performance. I think I agree with Schilling (typical disclaimer about not saying this just because he reads our blog) that all others being equal, Paps is more valuable in the rotation.
- A little late on this one, but Yanks fans might be bidding adieu to their Leche at the trade deadline.
- Curt Schilling returned to NYYFans.com for a second night of chatting — and was compared to Ted Bundy. Although, to be fair, the Yankee posts have been overwhelmingly respectful — I suspect good moderating has something to do with that, though…
