    Yankees trade LaTroy Hawkins to Astros

    Astros acquired RHP LaTroy Hawkins and cash from the Yankees for infielder Matt Cusick.
    Good news and bad news for Hawkins. On the one hand, the chance to return to the NL should help his numbers and his chances of landing a significant major league deal this winter. On the other, the other teams that were after him, the Twins and Tigers, were legitimate contenders, while joining the Astros only guarantees that he'll have October off. He'll help set up for Jose Valverde. Cusick, a 2007 10th-round pick, was hitting .285/.356/.462 as a 22-year-old in low-A ball. He's unlikely to ever see the majors.

    Why would the Astros do this? It's like they're paying millions of dollars a year to be the Yankees' garbagemen. This trade is very similar to the Guillermo Mota one the Mets made, dumping salary and getting a cheaper piece of garbage.
