A cup of coffee for Shelley?

Shelley Duncan was called up today. Chien-Ming Wang was moved to the 60-day DL to clear a roster spot for him on the 40-man, and Jonathan Albaladejo was optioned to Scranton to clear a spot on the 25-man. Though Duncan might not be with the big club for long.

Six years ago today, Bubba became a Yankee in a last-minute, deadline deal. Today, the Yankees made another deadline deal, though it was a small one. They traded minor league catcher Chase Weems to the Reds, for utility infielder/outfielder Jerry Hairston, Jr. Hairston can play every position except pitcher and catcher, and seems to be Gardner's replacement.

Either Cody Ransom or Shelley Duncan will be cut to make room for Hairston tomorrow, and it sounds like it will be Duncan, simply because he's not as versatile as Ransom.

The Yanks played Ransom at 1B today. That's a $^&*ing insult to Shelley. I haven't been this angry over a transaction in a while.

PS. He went 0-4 w/ 3 K's. If Shelley has 3 K's, you bet he's 1-4 w/ an upper deck HR. And they could've used it today.

I don't mind them keeping Ransom; he's out of options and Shelley Duncan isn't.

But why play Ransom at 1B? Why not Hinske? So what if he bats lefty. He's still better than Ransom.
