-Sigh-…..So, uhh….I guess everyone heard the news….-painful sigh-….Matt Holliday agreed….to a 7 year $120 million deal with the Cardinals…..so he left me….So much for he wanted to be a Yankee….disgusting….I’m really annoyed….I mean, I pretty much knew the Yankees weren’t interested, but I couldn’t make myself believe it….I’m only writing about this because it really upset me….and..well…because it gives me an excuse to put up a picture of this handome, strong, irresistable man…
-Sigh- Oh, Matt…I guess we were never meant to be….
I can’t help but to be mad at Matt. I mean is this really what he wanted? He wanted the most money? More than Pujols? It’s ridiculous. This song really explains how I feel: angry, disgusted, and betrayed.
Okay…I got that out of the way. Now what other options are there for the Yanks for left field? I love Johnny Damon and adore him, but I think he blew it. He wanted way too much. Unless he is willing to hurt his pride and settle for less, Johnny won’t be back next year. So, my new pick for who I want for left field is Xavier Nady.
I always liked Xavier Nady. I have his rookie card, and I always thought he was a cutie When he came to the Yankees along with Marte in ’08, I was glad. Nady did well for the Yanks in 2008, hitting .268 with 12 HR and 40 RBI in 59 games. I thought that he would be even better in 2009 because he would have adjusted to the pitchers. But sadly, Nady’s 2009 season was cut short: way too short.
That’s my card! Only mined isn’t signed.
Nady only played 7 games in 2009. I remember when he got hurt. He fielded a ball in right, and fired a rocket throw back into the infield. And that was it. His elbow “popped,” and he had to exit the game. He tried rehabing it, but with no luck. Tragically, Nady had to have his 2nd Tommy John Surgery, and miss the rest of the season. Sometimes I saw him in the dugout with the rest of the boys, wearing jeans and a Yankee sweatshirt. It upset me to see him like that. You could tell that was not where he wanted to be.
One thing I love about Xavier is that, well, he’s adorable. Unlike most baseball players, Nady has quite a nice head of hair. I just want to run my fingers through it…it’s so nice and thick and smooth!
Another thing that is really cute about Xavier is that to me, he always looks like he is in deep, deep thought. I can’t really explain, he just looks like he is thinking about the most complex things. Take a look at his expressions on some of these:
Deep, deep thoughts.
What’s on your mind?
Why so serious?
I think I know what he’s thinking in this one. He might be thinking: “I’m hurt.” Poor baby…
I hope the Yankees give Xavier Nady another shot, because he never really had a fair one this first time. Xavier, I love you. I hope your arm feels better, and that you are enjoying your offseason. AND I HOPE TO SEE YOU AGAIN NEXT YEAR!
…Matt Holliday….-ugh-….I’m so over him.
