Baldelli bids a classy farewell to the Rays

The Yankees have six outfielders at the moment — Melky Cabrera, Johnny Damon, Brett Gardner, Hideki Matsui, Xavier Nady and Nick Swisher — so they never really considered singing Rocco Baldelli.

Nobody knows for sure how much Baldelli will be able to play for the Red Sox given his history with injury and illness.

But one thing we know for sure is that Rocco is one classy dude. My buddy Marc Topkin of the St. Pete Times notes in his blog that Baldelli took out an ad in their paper thanking Rays fans. Hopefully they both read it.

Marc also points out that the Rays will be giving away cowbells to fans at the April 15 game against the Yankees. Fantastic.
