New Arm To Blow
Monday, December 10, 2007
One of last year's designated over-used pitchers, Vizcaino, opted to become a free agent a few days ago and is reportedly looking for a three-year deal with some sucker of a team (the sad/crazy/lucky part is that I bet he gets it, what with the black hole where decent relief pitchers should live), leaving the Yanks in need of a replacement for The Viz's very important position: Dude That Can Eat Innings And Henceforth Be Used Until His Shoulder Disintegrates A La Scott Proctor. Dr. Proctor himself isn't available since he's out in LA with the very man who destroyed his arm in the first place, so the Yanks had to look elsewhere for a destroyable arm to sign to a reasonable contract. The answer came in the form of ex-Rockie LaTroy Hawkins, who the Yanks just picked up for 1 year at a rate of $3.75 mil. He did very well for the NL East champs last year (sidenote: let's take a moment of silence for the fallen Padres), particularly considering the thin-air factor: 3.42 ERA in 55.1 innings over 62 appearances. He seems like a good pickup for the price, but if Girardi picks up where Torre left off with the handling of relievers, LaTroy better get in shape to pitch more like 90 innings in 2008.

    I wonder if this Cap Anson clown is responsible for the term "Cracker" catching on?

    Hawkins sucks. This signing is pretty useless.
