Brain McCann Is Looking to Go to A Contender
Free agents can sign anywhere as of midnight last night, and one of the biggest free agents on the market is Brian McCann. And for good reason: hes a good catcher who can hit a ton. Whats not to like? Many teams, including the Yankees, Red Sox and Rangers will be after him. Hes going to make bank.
Of course his free agency is also going to bring two free agency memes that I have grown to love in some twisted way. The first one is on display in this Daily News story:
McCanns agent, B.B. Abbott, said Monday that the Bronx is certainly a place that is on Brians radar. How could it not be? Youve got an historic franchise and a great park, knowledgeable fans and a chance to win, which is what every guy plays the game for. From Brians standpoint, it would be an attractive place to listen to.
Thats actually pretty strong as far as these sorts of endorsements go, likely because Abbott knows that the Yankees will be bidders. But its also a species of public comment about free agents we often see this time of year, and which often leads to fan and talk radio craziness.
