Phil Rogers repeats Weaver-to-Yankees nonsense to refute it

18

It takes a lot to make me appreciate guys like Whicker and Plaschke, but Phil Rogers manages. He took a non-existent idea that the Angels would trade Jered Weaver to the Yankees (which in turn was probably lifted from some Yankee idiot's blog filled with wanking ideas about how to get starters on the Yankee staff) and then dismissed the idea, as if to show his omniscience regarding all teams in MLB. Guess Rogers missed the news story about Pineiro needing more time to get ready. As long as Kazmir is the de facto #4 starter, the Angels aren't going to trade their ace. The Angels would need to be 80 games back before the All-Star Game for the team to trade Weaver to the Yankees or anybody else. If Rogers doesn't understand that, then he simply needs to impersonate an elderly Inuit and float off on an ice floe into the cold void.
