Bernie won’t have Kenny Lofton nipping at his heels any longer (granted, he’s likely to have stiffer competition); Kenny’s now a Philly, and the Yanks have have added Felix Rodriguez to their pen, news that should bring a big smile to Mariano Rivera and concern to the BoSox (lefties only hit .192 off our new Rod last year).
What does this deal mean for the rest of the Yankee bullpen? Who is expendable? That other Felix (Heredia) is surely a goner (for Stanton?). Is Steve Kline still an option? Is Quantrill safe? Can Gordon be packaged for the Unit? Read those tea leaves….
