X Factor

Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe is helping to spread a rumor that the Angels have interest in the Yankees’ OF/1B/ DH Xavier Nady  (h/t – MLBTraderumors).

We’re suspecting that the Angels don’t, actually, have much interest in a slow-footed, low OBP, right-handed bat to add to their crowded outfield. 

Nady could be a hedge of sorts, we suppose, to replace Kendry Morales at 1B if needed.  However, seeing as though the Yankees would be looking to pick up “an end-of-the-rotation starter,” something that the Angels need themselves, Cafardo’s claim is more likely the result of dubious posturing by Nady’s agent.

It’s a wonder that journalists even take the man’s phone calls anymore.  “Hi, Mr. Cafardo, this is Pinocchio, listen….”

    They could still use a bat, but why give up anything in trade when there are still so many bargains to be had in the free-agent pool (and non Type A or B bargains at that).

    Nady isn’t bad, but y’all are right, why would we need him? It isn’t like we need another right handed hitter anyhow.
