NY Yankees To Be Special Guest Umpires for World Series

A-Rod Umpire Jersey Becoming a Top Seller

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - (The Comedy News) - The New York Yankees won't be absent from the 2010 World Series after all.

Due to the low ratings from games one and two between the San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers, Major League Baseball has been forced to change things up to make sure the World Series meets anticipated revenues. Commissioner Bud Selig announced today that the New York Yankees will be special guest umpires for games three and four of the World Series.

This groundbreaking impromptu move has sparked bitter jealousy by the Philadelphia Phillies players, who still have not been given an explanation as to why the American League Championship Series loser, the Yankees, got the special guest umpire invitation, and not the loser of the National League Championship Series, the Phillies.

Still, the Alex Rodriguez limited-edition umpire jersey is now the top-selling item at the MLB's online store. A-Rod's ump jersey is expected to be the must-have Christmas gift during the upcoming holiday shopping season.
