The Yankees will pay Twenty Million Dollars for AJ to pitch for the Pirates instead of the Yankees.

AJ did one thing better than expected when the Yanks initially acquired him: he stayed off the DL and ate innings. Otherwise, I grew to despise his presence. I have rarely watched a more frustrating Yankee pitcher. A guy with very good stuff who would lose it so quickly in a game (wild pitch! walk! hit! wild pitch! and suddenly 6 runs are in with no outs) that you’d wonder if he had any mental toughness whatsoever. I am so pleased to see him go. I don’t wish the guy ill — for all his troubles he did not seem to have a bad attitude or blame others for his problems. But I am so so pleased that he won’t be on the mound for the Yanks ever again.
Oh, and Hideki Okajima was released from his minor league contract with the Yanks after failing a physical. Way to go out with a bang.
I think you guys know how I feel about this…
I think it’s as great as Obama winning the ’08 election.
