The Rips and LMC are happy to announce that they have exchanged Lyle Overbay for Brian Anderson. “I don’t recall which team has what player–we just wanted to make a deal,” announced Rips CEO Brad Jansen.
League Jansenist (hey, look it up in Wikipedia) Jeff Winick confirmed that the Riptorns traded Overbay to the LMC for Brian Anderson. “Anderson is a matinee idol and Jansen’s daughter adores him,” opined Winick in his to-the-minute-for-a-fee reserve list analyis. “Do I expect the Rips to retain Brian? At this point, who knows. I’m just relieved that the $100 million D-Mat man is human after all. Perhaps he was upset he wasn’t in Japan for Michael Jackson’s meet and greet. That’s all.”
