Trade deadline drama - T-Minus about, oh, 2.5 hrs

Say this in a really high pitched, annoying voice to yourself...

'Oh no! Not Wilson Betemit!!'

That team that is eight (e-i-g-h-t) games back of Boston in the AL East has started the trading deadline day drama by trading one of their setup guys, Scott Proctor, for the great, all powerful Wilson Betemit.

Fun fact on Wilson, no one really knows what age he is. There are several possible dates that have been attributed to him as a birthday. Nice. Have fun with that, Joe Torre. You possibly just traded one of your favourite relief guys for a 47 year old back up infielder. Neat.

Quick question for Yankee fans, in trading a pretty decent setup type guy for, well, muck, are New York giving up on 2007?

Mull that one over and get back to me.
