Yanks - Reportedly Signed Farnsworth
New York Yankees - Have reportedly come closer or perhaps signed P Kyle Farnsworth to a 3-year, $17 million contract.
If this doesn’t happen, I’m totally going to close the thread and deny it ever happened.
It’ll be interesting to see how Farnsworth does in New York. Yankee fans are going to either fall in love with Farnsworth or rebel and send him out of town a few feet ahead of a noose sometime in July. I’m going to go with the latter as people find relievers that have runs of horrific control to be quite maddening.
While Leo Mazzone did get a lot of out of Farnsworth for the Braves, the latter was quite good with the Tigers, so perhaps he’s turned the corner instead of being a Jaret Wright pumpkin carriage. I’m kind of surprised that nobody offered Farnsworth a similar contract with the promise to close. The Yankees aren’t the ideal team for Farnsworth - he’d fare better on a team with a good outfield defense, like the White Sox or the Blue Jays.
