So is MLB.com making a Larry Lucchino-type 'Evil Empire' statement with the placement of Darth Vader on the Yankees' portion of the upcoming White Sox schedule? Are they equating Hank Steinbrenner to the Emperor? A-Rod to Darth Maul?
Nope, the site is just back to its old cross-promotion ways, first seen with that all-time awful Indiana Jones movie and now with the release of a Star Wars video game, The Force Unleashed. Seeing as how it always seems to rile us blogger-types and grow legs in the 'sphere, I think it continues to be a good strategy. Someone at LucasFilm is in line for a raise.
