We forgot about Frazier already.  I kid... I kid.

This is a news item and there will be plenty of opinion on this unique move later.  The bottom line is the Yankees just got more fun.  We nailed down a deal with the Rangers for Russell Wilson.  Yup... the Quarterback. The Seattle Seahawks Quarterback. Crazy right?

Sports illustrated has this:

"The New York Yankees have acquired Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in a trade with the Texas Rangers in exchange for future considerations. Wilson is set to appear with the Yankees in Spring Training at some point in February or March.

According to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick, Wilson has no plans to double up as a two-sport athlete like Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson. "

But what does that mean? expands:

"Wilson, a four-time Pro Bowler, will show up in March to big-league camp, participate in pregame workouts and watch games from the dugout, the team said....The Yankees will assign him to Double-A Trenton's roster."

Well... OK, but the guy's a second baseman. Can't we play the guy there?

Hey, who the hell knows.  I do know this, it's exciting to see a move like this.  Or maybe the word I'm looking for is interesting.

Whatever the case, we got Russell Wilson, folks.  More on this with some hard opinion from BYB.  Look for it.

The last time we wrote about Wilson on our BYB pages was in a piece called "I JUST NEEDED SOMEONE TO GIVE ME A CHANCE."  That was the night the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. Read it.

In the meantime, welcome to New York, Russell.
