It was fun... for a moment, but I guess the experiment is over.
The Yankees have officially released lefty Jeff Francis. You can read about it HERE.
Of course, the reason why he was released was because the Yankees purchased the contract of Rich Hill from Scranton, all after they flipped Matt Thornton to the Nationals, because he was picked up off waivers from them.
OK... a lot to digest... did you get that?
In other words, they gave up a lefty to bring up another lefty and then get rid of another lefty.
As MLB Trade Rumors writes of Francis: "The veteran southpaw had been designated for assignment by the Bombers last week, with outfielder Zoilo Almonte taking his roster spot."
The Yankees are bettering themselves... you see the moves, you see the improvement... now let's see the wins!
