I guess you could say we are a passionately opinionated group.
So when the news broke that Vernon Wells had waved his clause and was traded (more like dumped) by the Angels to the Yankees it blew the roof of twitter.
The trade is not finalized, but it is done, if that makes sense.
Both teams are awaiting MLB commissioner Bud Selig final approval so technically there is still a shred of hope but not really, if that makes any sense. Basically, Selig ain’t going to veto this one.
Here are a few classic tweets that should give you a chuckle about the new Yankee.

Youkilis, Ichiro, Hafner, now Vernon Wells. It's hilarious to watch the Yankees basically become the 2006 AL All-Star roster.

I'm still in denial that Vernon Wells is a Yankee.
