YANKEES ARE CUTTING THE FAT
It's good to see that the Yankees are learning from past mistakes. All I mean by that is keeping guys around that really aren't contributing sucks. Fans get angry. It almost seems like the Yanks are listening. In the past, the Yanks have kept guys around and waiting too long to pull the trigger. They did it with guys like Boone Logan, who, many of us weren't too fond of, but he kept coming back and kept giving up home runs and disappointing all of us.
Brian Roberts was NOT a fan favorite this season and didn't really do much in Yankeeland. I'm sure he was a nice guy, I know he was a great teammate, but when the Yankees finally decided to release him (Read BRIAN ROBERTS GONZO), and acquired dudes like Martin Prado and Stephen Drew, it was clear, Yankee brass understood we were in the middle of the summer and we weren't in first place.

Now they've cut more fat, and this report comes from CBSSports.com. They wrote:
"The Nationals are acquiring reliever Matt Thornton after a waiver claim from the Yankees, sources said... it'll be a substantial savings for the Yankees. New York will more than $4M via this waiver claim. Thornton has a $3.5-million salary for next year per his existing contract."
So yeah... Yanks are cutting the fat. It was either I used a picture of someone literally cutting fat off their steak like the one below...
Or Thornton's mug. Some would suggest it's the same thing.
Good luck Matt.
