Pending Pinstripes: Mr. Bean, Austin LOOGY, and Other Bad Movies...

I somehow forgot to mention it yesterday, but the latest in the long line of Posada's Pursuers is Keith McDonald, acquired from the Texas Rangers on Saturday for a PTBNL. McDonald is a 33-year old journeyman minor league catcher who's only got eight games of experience in MLB, none since 2001. His career batting average in the minors is .264 and his career slugging percentage is an even .400, neither of which is particularly good. Unless you happen to be suing him for palimony or something like that, this is probably the last you'll ever hear of him. Keith McDonald's on the farm, E-I-E-I-O!

On Monday the Yankees sent RHP Colter Bean to Triple-A Columbus and sent RHP Mark Corey and LHP Dusty Bergman to Minor League camp.

Bean's Propsect of the Week report can be found here, but this is all you really need to know about Bean's chances of making it with the New York Yankees:

PLAYER  W  L  S   ERA  G GS   IP  H  R  HR  BB  SO
C Bean 0 0 0 0.00 1 0 1.0 0 0 0 0 1

One game.

That means that Colter bean got only slightly more of a look this spring than George Pipgras, and he's been dead for 20 years!
