7 thoughts on “Report: Yankees acquire Chris Capuano from Rockies

    Capuano is a slightly below league average pitcher. It sounds like the Yankees picked him up just because he was cheap and their rotation is thin. Previously the rotation was Kuroda, Phelps, Whitley, Greene and McCarthy with absolutely nobody to fill in if someone got hurt. This gives them a small amount of depth for no cost.

    Wow.. I guess I was wrong about Refsnyder's shot. SMH?

    Why did Yankees neglect Billings and Leroux in favor of trading for Capuano who has yet to make a start this year?

    Is 4 southpaws in the bullpen part of strategy to clinch a playoff spot?

    Although it is a small trade, I don't envision it as a smart move on Yankees part.

    We'll be happy to have Capuano, who is capable of putting a solid month together if aces like Whitley, Phelps, Warren, McCarthy or Warren flop or go DL.
