No, you kids can’t have a Nick Swisher for Christmas. Look, we got you a Shane Victorino, it’s just as good!

Well then. I guess we can forget about Nick Swisher. It’s not so bad, right? At least the Napoli deal is fini- oh. I mean, it’s not the end of the world guys! Ha ha ha ha. That joke is still fresh, right?

Come on, I’m dying up here.

To make this a double-nerd post,the team just grabbed Joel Hanrahan from Pittsburgh in exchange for Jerry Sands, Stolmy Pimentel, and some mystery players. Maybe Mark Melancon? Maybe not? Seems like a lateral move to me. Sands and Pimentel aren’t really much of a loss at this point, and Melancon is probably the same pitcher that Hanrahan is. Maybe slightly better, considering that he doesn’t have Hanrahan’s history of control problems. And no, for the billionth time, “saves” mean nothing. There’s a possibility of another player coming over from Pittsburgh though. Maybe Andrew McCutcheon? Of course not. But for a second you wanted to believe, didn’t you? Yup. Bundle up, nerds.
