The Yankees made another big trade, swapping Kyle Farnsworth for Pudge Rodriguez. Wearing No. 12, Rodriguez will be at the Stadium today and quite likely in the lineup.
There was a game, too. The Yankees hammered the Orioles as Joba Chamberlain dominated again.
Meanwhile, Jorge Posada had surgery This notebook also has an update on Hideki Matsui.
In all the trade hubbub, I forgot about this.
Kevin Millar was asked whether he thought Edwar Ramirez was throwing at him.
“One hundred percent,” he said. “I was upset they threw him out of the game because he’s really good hitting. He’s a cute little fellow, he doesn’t throw that hard and he doesn’t have very good stuff. So it’s probably a good idea they threw him out, because it probably would’ve been in Monument Park.”
That’s pretty funny. What’s even funnier is that Millar is 1 for 4 against Ramirez with three K’s.
