CAPUANO SIGNS & SKINNER POPPED CHAMPAGNE SOMEWHERE
Big news is you are NOT a fan of Chris Capuano like BYB Senior writer Steve Skinner. Cap just signed a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers. According to several sources, but we'll go with Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
"It was a blast from the past Monday when the Brewers announced they signed veteran left-hander Chris Capuano to a minor-league deal with an invitation to spring training.
Capuano, 37, pitched for the Brewers from 2004 through 2007 before injuring his arm and missing two seasons. He returned to Milwaukee in 2010 before becoming a free agent and signing with the New York Mets.
Capuano went on to pitch for the Dodgers, Red Sox and Yankees. He went 0-4 with a 7.97 ERA in 22 games (four starts) with New York last season and is 76-91 with a 4.39 ERA in 300 major league games, including 225 starts."
Right now, somewhere in New York, Steve Skinner has popped a bottle of champagne. That's because both Capuano and his friend Stephen Drew (read DREW SIGNS WITH NATIONALS & SKINNER IS HAPPY) are no longer under Yankee control, or as Skinner would say... they're not our problem anymore.
Geez... who the hell is Skinner gonna obsess over now?
Good luck to Cap. You did what you could in New York. It just didn't work out.
