Dear Fellow General Managers,
I know this will be hard for you to believe, and it will be difficult for me to say given all that he's done for the organization, but the New York Yankees and I, Brian Cashman, are willing to discuss a possible trade for veteran Left Handed Pitcher Kei Igawa. I know you are floored right now, but he's out there if the price is right.
Igawa this season has been terrific. He's 8-4 with a 4.03 ERA*. He'd be the perfect left hander to round out the backend of your rotation. In fact, screw backend, he could be your ace**. So don't waste anytime, please send your trade offers to the following address:
1 Babe Ruth Avenue
The Bronx, New York, New York
Don't wait too long, the deadline is friday, and you really really really want the Milk Soda Beaver.
*With Scranton Wilkes-Barre
**That's a lie
