Sandy Alderson Puts K-Rod Up For Sale On eBay

Sandy Alderson, proactive as always, has decided to market his closer Francisco Rodriguez in a new innovative way.  He has put him up for auction at Ebay.

We found him listed under  Sporting Goods > Outdoor Sports > Baseball > Pitchers > Closers > RH'd

The detailed information we found when we clicked on the link said:

Condition -  serviceable  but being sold "AS IS"
Age - 29

We have used this player as our closer for the last three and a half years and while you may choose to do so also there are some complications attendant if he finishes 55 games this year.  Don't say the seller the didn't warn you.

This player could be of particular value to teams in the AL East who tend to get into on-field brawls since K-Rod has a well established reputation as a pugilist  (mug shots available upon request).

FREE SHIPPING available for anyone using the BUY IT NOW option.

Late last night, the Brewers clicked Buy It Now and accepted the Mets price of two "C" prospects if  the Mets agreed to send 5 million dollars to Milwaukee via Paypal.  The Mets agreed and K-Rod is now a Brewer.  No word yet if either side has left positive feedback.
