It started out as a normal Friday the 13th. The Yankees had the same 5 starters, Jesus Montero & Hector Noesi were still Yankees and the Yankees were a team that looked as if they were going to make it to the playoffs--maybe. But in one late night hour on Friday night Brian Cashman pulled the plug and turned the Yankees from drab to fab by adding 2 new pitchers: Hiroki Kuroda & Michael Pineda, wiping out the possiblity for a Roy Oswalt or Edwin Jackson pinstripe experience. The Yankees soon went from being a possible playoff team, to becoming the favorites to make the World Series.

Michael PinedaSo I know what you are thinking. Why did Cashman use Jesus Montero in a trade for Michael Pineda? Simple reason actually. One was there was no way that the Yankees were going to get King Felix. It wasn't happening.

The New York Yankees have announced that they are re-signing RHP Freddy Garcia to a 1 year deal. That is the good news. The bad news is that in order to put Garcia on the 40 man roster, the Yankees had to get rid of someone, so they designated OF Colin Curtis for assignment. Colin Curtis was out all year in 2011 nursing a broken shoulder which occured during Spring Training. No news as to where Colins will end up.
