Bizarre rumor: Yankees sign Juan Gone?

From MLB Trade Rumors:

El Vocero, one of the bigger newspapers in Puerto Rico, is reporting that the Yankees signed Juan Gonzalez to a two-year, $2MM deal.
The article is in Spanish, and I'm three years removed from AP Spanish, so I'm not even going to bother trying to translate.

There is no way the Yankees would give a multi-year contract for a guy who last played in 2005 (and only had one at-bat). Right?

UPDATE - 1:45 p.m.: Apparently we all fell for a prank. Yesterday was their version of April Fool's Day. No need to worry, the Yankees aren't that stupid.
