Gone But Not Forgotten

Francisco Cervelli

Sure did enjoy Francisco Cervelli’s time in pinstripes. He was The Wife’s favorite. Loved that smile. He was a mascot and more–had a little passion, could hit a little, piss off the opposition a little. He’ll be missed.

And if he’s got to go somewhere, hell, why not Pittsburgh? It’ll be easy to keep rooting for him. He’ll join another former Yankee, Chris Stewart.

sad to see him go, but I think this will be a good opportunity for him. Maybe even a full time gig.

Adios Frankie Brains. Intermittent with the skills but unflagging with the attitude.

Looks like he may be helping push Russell Martin out the Pirates' door. Interesting conga line, that.

Now: Hit, McCann. Hit.

1) Here, here.

I will miss Frankie Brains, but looks like Cashman got a good reliever for him . . . and the Yanks just traded a veteran to let a kid play! This means either Murphy or Romine is the backup catcher.

Sad to see him go, especially for yet another relief pitcher the team might not even use down the line. But like so many here lately, he needs a chance to be somebody somewhere else.

I'm beginning to doubt The Hamma will be boomeranging back to the club this season as well.

I wish they could have taught him how to back up 1st base.

He was a fun guy to watch, and now this team is a little less grittier.
