Don’t give up so fast, Cash

This from’s Jayson Stark:

Kei Igawa isn’t quite as buried on that Yankees’ depth chart as Carl Pavano, but it’s close. And he’s already homesick. We’ve heard from two different baseball men recently that Igawa asked the Yankees over the winter if there was any way he could return to Japan. The Yankees quietly explored their options, got nowhere and gave up. They’re still on the hook for nearly $11 million to Igawa through the 2010 season.

Does anybody get else get the feeling that the GM of the Hanshin Tigers must look at the AAA boxscores every five days and laugh hysterically? They got $26 million for that guy.


Meanwhile, we here at the LoHud Yankees Blog would like to welcome Lace and Stiletto. They’re the two, um, nightclubs that purchased an ad on the blog. It’s going to run through the weekend, I’m told.

Unfortunately, I’ll be in Minnesota and will miss “Bikes and Babes Sunday.” Plus my Harley is in the shop. But have a good time.
