“We offered a three-year deal and were prepared to stay engaged in the negotiations, but we were told that he had decided to go to New York as a setup guy.”

Braves general manager John Schuerholz on Kyle Farnsworth

Still no definitive word [1] on the Farnsworth [2] deal, though it appears that it is simply a matter of time [3] now. Steve Lombardi [4] points out that while Farnsworth [5] may not be great, he won’t be horrendous either. The Bombers are still interested in Flash Gordon too. Gordon’s agent says that he’s likely to make a decision in the coming days.

As for center field, it looks as if the Yankees are sticking with their Bubba for now. According to Tyler Kepner [6] in the Times:

“Center field is not easy to fill,” Cashman, the Yankees’ general manager, said yesterday. “That’s why I continue to say that Bubba Crosby could very well be that guy. I know he’s sitting at home somewhere saying, ‘I hope they don’t do anything.’”

Bubba must be pleased to hear that Brian Giles [7] has reportedly [8] come to terms with the Padres.
