Yesterday, the New York Yankees announced the signing a third right-handed-hitting outfielder in journeyman outfielder Juan Rivera.

Fans who think Rivera looks familiar, well they would be correct, as he came up as a Yankees prospect between 2001-2003 and went on to play for five other teams since.
Rivera made $4 million bucks last season with the Dodgers, but they declined his 2013 option the day after the 2012 World Series finished.
I hate that the Yankees are taking the Dodgers scraps, or any teams for that matter but that is life in the Bronx for now.
Rivera could offer a nice righty bat off the bench but this guy has no business in the outfield as his defense stinks. Rivera has spent time at first base so he can fill in for Mark Teixeira once a month to give him a day off, which is all right.
What really bugged me about this news is that it forced me to think about the Dodgers outfield of Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford. (more…)

Reports are out that the New York Yankees could be close to a deal to sign Indians D.N. Travis Hafner. Why would the Yankees want Hafner. The guy spends more time in the D.L. than anyone I know other than Grady Sizemore. Hafner would make a big buck for the Yankees and bring a small return to the team in the big apple. Hafner played in only 66 games last year and hit only 12 home...

First, he could miss either half of the season due to hip surgery or almost the entire...
