The Yankees have designated Zoilo Almonte for assignment. In addition to that, Matt Daley has been released. Once again, Bleeding Yankee Blue writer Jeana Bellezza will be aggravated and ask, "Why?" and with that, I'm sure her next piece will include names like Brandon Laird and Ronnier Mustelier and once again pushing the youth movement in the Bronx. I agree with her.
It's just madness. I believe in Almonte. I also believe Almonte will be a big help for the Yankees one day. They just need to keep the guy with the big club long enough so he can blossom.
Zoilo designated, Matt Daley releasedBut look, the reality is, Zoilo and Daley moves have to do with the fact that September call ups are here and with that, the following names have been called up:

John Ryan Murphy
Yanks call up: Chris Young, John Ryan Murphy, Preston Claiborne, Bryan Mitchell, Chase Whitley, Rich Hill, Antoan Richardson and Chaz Roe.All the youngsters listed should have an invite, plus I believe Almonte shouldn't have moved anywhere. But I guess for the argument of moving around personnel, logically, moving down someone like Almonte makes sense in that regard. I don't get Rich Hill... I don't think I ever will. I thought by now he would have been released. Roe could help, and no... Chris Young doesn't belong there either.

That being said... don't get crazy, it will all work out. I promise... maybe.
