HERE that the Yankees have signed Dan Johnson to a minor league deal and an invitation to Spring Training. Johnson played for the White Sox last season and had a .364 average in 22 at bats. This move shouldn't surprise anyone Yankee fans. We knew this was coming. The days of big spending are over. I will say this, for a spare part like Johnson, I like him but he ain't no superstar. Cashman is clearly looking for lightening in a bottle. Plus, if he makes it and hits a home run, a really want to hear John Sterling scream... Nice Johnson!
We also saw Justin Upton just get traded to the Braves today. We wrote about that right before the deal happen last night in CURRENT UPTON RUMORS LEAVE THE YANKEES ALL WET. Bottom line, the world knew Upton would not come to the Yankees and the Yankees missed the boat, on purpose of not will be determined later... but the Yanks, I believe never wanted Upton, even though Yankee fans did.
Scott Hairston finally decided that he didn't want to go to the Mets or the Yankees because neither team wanted to give him 2 years. So... he walked and signed a 2 year deal with the Cubs. Read HERE.
Again, this shouldn't surprise anyone... Yankeeland is in a tizzy and nothing is being done to change it. Nothing.
