The one night I thought the Yankees wouldn’t make a deal, the Yankees go ahead and make a deal for another lefty in the pen. Here’s the story:

The New York Yankees have acquired LHP Josh Outman from the Cleveland Indians for a player to be named later.

In 31 games for the Indians, Outman is 4-0 with a 3.28 ERA. He’s spent six Major League Seasons with the Oakland Athletics, Colorado Rockies and the Cleveland Indians, and is 16-11 with a 4.49 ERA in 152 games and 32 starts.

    Great another mediocre guy, let's go to the farm to see if we have some young inexpensive players and stop buying guys like mccan't tex and aroid.

      I would be more pissed off if Yankees traded Pirela, Refsnyder or Murphy away for an expensive bum(s).

    I guess when you're cleanup hitter is a guy who thinks its just fine to hit .230, all you can do is recycle lefty relievers.

    So Jacob Lindgren is not ready for big job. Boo!

    Girardi has been comfortable with Prado at 2B so Refsnyder and Pirela could be out of picture. I am disappointed because I wanted Prado to play SS with Pirela at 2B. Oh well..

    • Celerino says:

      Prado is a 30 year old who has played 16 games at short in his career. Prado will probably be the thirdbaseman after the A-Rod comeback fails. Pirela used to be a shortstop but from his fielding stats it looks like he's not much of a fielder at any position.

    Oh man!… Gary Sanchez better not be in the similar path.

    That's hilarious. (Link above). I would love to make AROD play double A for the next three years and have him ride a bus to games to earn $20 million. Hey, I'd do it, and can't hit minor pitching at all.

  6. Not every move has to be a blockbuster trade for an all-star. Josh Outman is better than Rich Hill. The Yankees can make the switch at a negligible cost. So why wouldn't you make the move?
