Best thing to happen to the Yankee's rotation since Whitey Ford?
The Brewers clearly signed Mitre to help with their rotation problems since Grienke is on the DL and Marcum is on his way to getting hurt,and good luck to them. Inserting Mitre will not help, whether as a starter or long reliever, so the Yank's clearly got the best of this deal. Dickerson has a .271 career batting average and made a few nice plays in the outfield last season, so even though the Yankees aren't desperate for an outfielder (unless Swisher's foot thing is more serious than it appeared?) but he'll fit in nicely.
In other Yankee news, they signed Kevin Millwood to a minor league deal today. How does that feel Mitre? Kevin Fucking Millwood, American League loss king, is going to get the spot you didn't think you should have to try out for. Anyway, Millwood isn't exactly Cliff Lee, but I'll take a veteran presence, albeit one who hasn't had a good season since like 1999 as some kind of insurance for a shaky rotation.
Goodbye and fuck off Sergio Mitre, it's been a terrible fucking two seasons.
