Coming off a 3-7 road trip and with 41 games to go in the season, the Yankees
are desperate to get back in the playoff hunt. That desperation has apparently
led them to demote struggling centerfielder Melky Cabrera to the minors and
waive first baseman Richie Sexson.
Both Cabrera and Sexson are dead weight at the moment, but it's not liking getting rid of them is going to turn anything around either. Yeah, it's hindsight, but the real move to have made with Melky would have been to package him with Kennedy months ago to get Johan Santana, and the real move to get some kind of production at first base/DH would have been to try and nab Adam Dunn, or an inanimate carbon rod, or something that would have been better than Richie Sexson.
But hey, let's give the Yankees credit for not going gentle into that good night.
