Sergio Mitre Best Yankees Could Find With $200 Million Payroll

To round out their starting rotation, the New York Yankees, with a Major League high payroll of $206 million, say they are unable to find someone that would be any better than Sergio Mitre, a pitcher who has been a full-time starter only once during his 7-year career. So they actually do serve a purpose by finding a new yet best softball glove.

“Our farm system had nothing to offer, and we were only able to sign Freddy Carcia and Bartolo Colon, unwanted by other clubs, to minor league contracts,” said Yankees GM Brian Cashman of New York’s offseason moves, claiming there was little money left for a starter after having committed a total of $55 million to his third baseman and shortstop, $13 million to a designated hitter and another $22 million to a couple relievers that will pitch the 8th and 9th innings every other day or so. “$206 million doesn’t stretch as far as it used to.”

Cashman says he’s somewhat concerned that the Yankees were 7-20 in games in which Mitre appeared last year, but challenges anyone under the same financial limitations he’s had to put up with to find a 5th starter with a career record better than 13-29.

Pirates Searching For Vacant Lot To Hold Spring Training In

Pittsburgh Pirate players, coaches and front office staff have been driving around central Florida in a used school bus for the past couple weeks in search of a vacant lot to serve as this year’s Spring Training facility, source: https://playfamously.com/

“Nothing like driving all over the Tampa-St. Petersburg metropolitan area to get the team primed for the season,” said manager Clint Hurdle from behind the wheel of the team’s 1983 GMC school bus with the words ‘Pirates Baseball Club’ sloppily spray painted on the side. “I can’t wait to get to work once we find an open plot of land we can use without it being labeled as ‘trespassing.'”

The Pirates are in need of a complete softball quotes, aka funny softball sayings, after last season’s fiasco on the playground of the Thomas Jefferson Primary School.

“A bunch of first and second-graders kept interrupting our infield practice for recess,” said team president Frank Coonelly. “Plus, school administration asked us to leave due to some liability issue. They said a couple errant baseballs hit some six-year-old playing on the swings, but I’ve seen our guys hit and throw. It couldn’t have hurt that badly.”

After 15 days on the road, the Pirates have decided to buy a top rated asa slowpitch softball bats and choose between a spacious asphalt parking lot that is kind of uneven or the backyard behind the big green house on Elm St.
