- The Yankees let Eric Chavez go to the Diamondbacks for $3 million - petty cash for the Yankees; and now
- Poor Joe Girardi is now so desperate for a lefty hitter on the bench that he is auditioning Dan Johnson at third base.
It blew my mind to read the latter. Dan Johnson has played a total of 43 innings at third base in his career. And the fact that he has 291 PAs since 2007 tells you how the professionals that construct rosters evaluate Johnson's batting skills.
To give Johnson credit, he has hit some clutch HRs in his career. But it just makes me think of Enrique Wilson. He destroyed Pedro Martinez to the point where it was comical, but overall was an awful hitter.
