Reid Brignac for assignment earlier today, read HERE. He was about the equivalent of Chris Nelson in my eyes, so I guess it's good that they moved Reid... no offense to Reid, I'm sure he's a nice guy.
To fill the hole, the Yankees acquired utility man Brent Lillibridge from the Cubs. The return will be cash considerations. Lillibridge is 29 and with the Cubs AAA he was batting .281.
Look, I actually like this kid. I remember a few years ago he single handily beat the Yankees when they played the White Sox. Read WHY LILLIBRIDGE BEAT THE YANKEES. I've talked about "moments" at Bleeding Yankee Blue, and sometimes those moments are big. No doubt Brent Lillibridge will never forget that moment beating the Yankees... and now he is one. Wacky stuff!
The Cubs are apparently ready to sell and tonight, with the acquisition of Lillibridge, it's clear, but I actually think there is another player the Yankees should try and trade for... stay tuned for that on BYB tomorrow....
