Yanks To Get Cameron...

and maybe Bill Fucking Hall, too, says King of All Brewers Media Tom Haudricourt.

Some excerpts from Sr. Haudricourt's piece, with award-winning analysis by Rubie Q (brought to you by ... Chevy!) below:

But here’s the interesting part – the Yankees would like to expand the trade to include Brewers third baseman Bill Hall. The Brewers were giving serious consideration to expanding the deal if what they received in return for Hall made sense to them.

DO IT.

So, look for the Cameron for Cabrera deal to definitely come down but don't be stunned if the Yankees get the Brewers to include Hall as well in an expanded trade.

DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. DO IT.

The Brewers originally had hoped to get the Yankees to include a young pitching prospect such as Ian Kennedy in a Cameron-Cabrera swap but New York does not want to do that.

I don't fucking care if we get a dozen Krispie Kremes back for Bill Fucking Hall. DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT DO IT.

Here’s the primary reason the Brewers are trading Cameron and would consider moving Hall as well –

Cam is over the hill and rapidly losing his step in centerfield, and Bill Fucking Hall duped the brass into thinking that he was a legitimate talent when he hit 35 homers for a team that lost 100 games, but it turns out that he can't hit righties, is an adventure in the field, and ain't such a great clubhouse guy, either?

centerfield and third base are the only positions on the field where they could incorporate some desperately needed left-handed bats (Cabrera is a switch hitter).

Oh.

If Hall is included in the trade, the Yankees might ask the Brewers to pick up some of his future salary -- $6.8 million in 2009 and $8.4 million in 2010 with a $9.25 million option for 2011 with a $500,000 buyout.

Tell you what: here's a buck-oh-five from Rubie. Anyone else willing to throw in a buck-oh-five to get this shit done?

DO IT.
DO IT.
DO IT.
DO IT.
DO IT.
DO IT.
DO IT.
DO IT.

Unless one of their pitching prospects is involved, the deal is garbage! As much as I dislike Bill Hall, giving him away while having to pay his salary doesn't make much sense for us. If they pick up his salary....fine. And why couldn't they? They have a payroll nearing 300 mil, but they can't afford Hall's 6-9mil over the next few years? Bite me! The Brewers organization isn't in a position to just pick up 10 million dollar salaries for someone not on the squad. We aren't the Red Sox (see Manny Ramirez). I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens. I'd love to get rid of his over priced ass in a deal, but getting rid of him and still taking on his salary just doesn't make any sense for us....especially with what little depth we have at the moment.
