Clearly the Tigers sent an imposter to New York in exchange for Kyle Farnsworth.
Pudge Rodriguez is 10 of 55 (.182) for the Yankees with one RBI (that coming on Aug. 3). He has struck out 10 times, grounded into four doubles plays and walked only three times.
He’s 5 of his last 37.
But who can kill the move? Everybody (which the exception of Newsday’s Ken Davidoff) said it was a great trade when Cashman made it. But they’ve even missed Kyle Farnsworth, now that Jose Veras is back to being Jose Veras.
Pavano is 2-0, Krazy Kyle is missed. Next thing you know Girardi will start telling stories about Bob Gibson and saying “no question” a lot. It’s a world gone mad.
