Keith Olbermann: The Jacoby Ellsbury Deal? It Stinks.

You don’t assign Olbermann to anti-Yankee cases, You just turn him loose!

Entertaining...but it features maybe the worst Eastwood impersonation ever. (I did laugh when he referred to "fawning...media", however...)

Yeah, the Eastwood impersonation was quite low brow. I like his rundown of all of the other 'long-term' deals with guys 30+ in age.

sidebar: Aoki just traded by Brewers to Royals for Will Smith.

I thought it was a Jay Sherman impersonation.

Never mind Eastwood, the Ren impersonation was spot-on.

The Aoki trade seems good for the Royals. I like Aoki and Smith was expendable. If the Brewers make Smith a starter it would be good though.

Did he like the Nats acquiring Fister?

A very entertaining rant.

Wow, I had never actually seen a picture of the young Steinbrenner. He looks a bit like Sam Gamgee.

Why is the votto deal already a never?

Olbermann also mischaracterized the Fangraphs article. Dave Cameron was merely saying that some folks were citing Carl Crawford as the reason why the deal was awful without looking at a larger sample, which included Rickey Henderson and Kenny Lofton.
