sarcasm |ˈsärˌkazəm|: noun; the use of irony to mock or convey contempt

Sarcasm? The 'hangnail' comment was kind of cute and cute rarely, if ever, qualifies as sarcasm. The rest of the post seems wholly supportive of the Roberts signing. If, as CP now claims, that his Roberts post was an exercise in sarcasm, I'll gladly sign up for class with Dr. Cooper and CP had best car pool with us.

The 'cruel' facts are that the Roberts signing is a last gasp effort to sign anyone who can play the position after  Omar Infante signed with KC and the Yankees farm system is devoid of quality infield prospects (as well as quality outfield prospects, quality pitching prospects, ad nauseum).

That Roberts has not been able to play in more than 77 games since 2009 is not cruel, just fact, and it remains highly unlikely that number will not improve with age.

I'm far from the first 'cruel' SOB to comment on a potential Jeter - Johnson infield combination. The cruelty will be in the watching.

I'll leave it to our four or five regular readers to make their own evaluations but it is good to see that CP can, like the rest of us mere mortals, get personally abusive. Sarcasm?
