Can't We Make an Exception for Fu Manchus?

The Yankees have picked up Sal Fasano to replace backup catcher Kelly Stinnett, thereby exchanging a rotund .228 hitter for a portly .243 hitter. I’m not sure why they think he’ll be any better--the only real advantage he seems to have over Stinnett is his amusing facial hair, and they’ll probably make him shave that--but still, what’s not to like about a guy who once had pizza delivered to his fan club during a game?

I'd also like to point out that last night's game was won on a three-run homer by Aaron "Not Good Enough for the Kansas City Royals" Guiel. At this point in the season, it's going to take a lot to surprise me. Sidney Ponson's no-hitter is just aroud the corner.
