Sorry Orioles fans... it wasn't an April Fools Joke

The Orioles really DID pick up Julio Lugo. I read the news yesterday and saw that the Birds got him from the Red Birds... but it was on April 1.

Who could believe anything on April 1?
And who could believe one team could trade FOR Julio Lugo... especially a team that has no realistic chance to win and could be grooming a young Linkkid in the infield.

But alas, there it is. The Orioles are the latest spot for Julio Lugo to play in a career that has earned him nearly $40 million... and virtually no love from any fan base that he played for.

If you think I am being harsh on Lugo, remember I did write this amazingly PRO Julio Lugo post last year.

And check out his Baseball Reference page. Look who the sponsor is!

You are welcome.

  1. While he is a horrible player, or at least has been one the last few years, I can see why they would sign him with the problems Brian Roberts has been having. I think he is mostly just a form of insurance, plus he's not HORRIBLE as a utility infielder type. Just don't play him every day. Ever.
