I don't know, but you know Cashman. He's all about distractions. Like when a young Vito Corleone kills Don Fanucci while the fireworks were going on during the San Gennaro festival in Godfather II.
It's about distractions and with everyone firing their angry energy over there about the Yankees and what they have to do to gain a spot back in first base, is it possible that the Yankees claimed Craig Kimbrel off waivers? Well, that's what I think happened today. Hopefully we'll find out soon.
Here's the story, and it comes from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:
Now that makes sense. The Padres don't need to unload the guy, but remember, the Yankees were connected at one point as to perhaps making a trade for Kimbrel. Remember? July? Right before the trade deadline?Source: #Padres’ Kimbrel claimed on waivers by unknown team. Club official says team has no intention of moving him.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) August 28, 2015
Now look....who knows if the Yanks are the team? I guess it's wishful thinking on my part, but I love little nuggets like this... enjoy it.
When we find out who the team is, we will bring you that news.
