Report: Juan Gonzalez Signs With Yankees?

UPDATE, 12-29-07 at 12:43pm: I'm told the article is the equivalent of an April Fool's joke.

FROM 12-29-07 at 10:38am:

El Vocero, one of the bigger newspapers in Puerto Rico, is reporting that the Yankees signed Juan Gonzalez to a two-year, $2MM deal.  This report definitely makes me raise an eyebrow, for three reasons:

  • In both 2006 and 2005, odd reports surfaced about teams being interested in Gonzalez, only to have the teams publically deny interest a day or two later.
  • It seems absurd to give Gonzalez two years or $2MM when he hasn't played in the Majors since that one at-bat in 2005. He's 38 currently.
  • The Yankees would seem the last team with room for another DH.
