Yesterday the New York Post reported some unsurprising, but extremely good news:
After Kyle Farnsworth proved as trustworthy as North Korea, Luis Vizcaino has become Torre’s go-to man. Farnsworth, in fact, has cleared waivers, The Post has learned. Thus his greatest value now is if Brian Cashman can find a sucker to take as much of the $5.75 million the righty is owed next year as possible.
I don’t care if the most Cashman can get another team to pay is Farnsworth’s airfare out of here, he just needs to go. I don’t know how, and I don’t know what team would want an unreliable “eighth inning man” who gets booed before he steps foot on the mound, but I am not beneath begging and there are plenty of GMs out there who make worse decisions than Cashman.
While I’m on the topic of terrible pitchers: I still can’t figure out why the Yankees told the Padres Igawa was not on the block when they came knocking around the deadline.
