“Matt did a great job for us,” Cashman said. “There’s a reason the Nats put a claim on him; they’re in a pennant race and they know he can help them. But this is about flexibility in 2014 and 2015 for us.”
So Thornton, who had a 2.55 ERA in 24.2 innings and had not surrendered a home run since last June, is gone, replaced in the short term by journeyman Rich Hill.
Hill, of course, sucks. He hit the only batter he faced in his Yankees debut. Seems like a weird time to create a hole in your bullpen, but I guess when you are in a small market you’ve got to make every dollar count.
Cue Yankee Redneck.
