Well Well Well...

So the New York Yankees FINALLY make a deal, and I'm incredibly late telling you about it... Terribly sorry!

In case you haven't heard, Tom Gordon has gone off to be the closer for the Philadelphia Phillies and to replace him in the set-up role is Kyle Farnsworth, who spent last season as the closer for the Braves. Considering all the relievers this offseason want to do nothing but close, Farnsworth was really the best option the Yanks had and I think it's as good a move as they could have made, given the circumstances.

Also, it appears that the Yankees infield will be well represented at the World Baseball Classic, with Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter signed on to represent their respective countries (although A-Rod seems to have forgotten he was born right here in New York and has not announced whether he'll represent the USA or the Dominican Republic). So it will be nice to have some Yankees represented, as long as they don't get injured before the season starts.

Anyway, this is just a quick update because I have finals coming up and have loads of things to do between now and Christmas. I'll try to keep up with my blog though, so keep coming back and reading!

EDIT (2/20): Robinson Cano has withdrawn from the WBC, and Alex Rodriguez, at least right now, is playing for Team USA, though don't be shocked if that changes between now and the first game of the tournament!

That A-Rod cracks me up- I mean, soon he'll be looking to get inducted into the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame and to be honored by the Negro Leagues or something! Your site is progressing nicely, I love it!
