The wait is almost over: we’ll soon learn where Yuniesky Betancourt will play in 2014

Jan 22, 2014, 4:50 PM EDT

The appetizer is out of the way, now comes the entree: step aside, Tanaka. We all eagerly await the winner of the Yuniesky Betancourt derby:

Finally, my inbox will stop being filled with “WHERE WILL YU-BET SIGN?” We’ll be spared the column after column of speculation on who will end up with him and what the legacy of the losing general managers may be. The logjam of infielders who can neither hit nor field all that well will finally break and we will have wave after wave of signings.

Or maybe this is just a matter of Betancourt’s agent trying to make a big show out of shopping his client around. Could be either, frankly.

    Too easy, GM supreme Ruben Amaro Jr. with another coup.

      He’s already been there and done that. He’s just waiting for A-Roid to come off suspension so he can trade Maikel Franco straight up for him (w/ no $$ back from NY).

      sounds like a player the jays can afford I think and he fits right in, just ask the police in Toronto even they know!!

    Atlantic League or American Association?

    My guess is the Orioles… we are getting used to these type of signings.
