    Randy Winn DFA

    http://yankees.lhblogs.com/

    Randy Winn has been designated for assignment to make room for Curtis Granderson.

    Its the worst part of my job, Joe Girardi said.

    The Yankees chose to keep Kevin Russo for his versatility.

    I'm not surprised. I can't believe how bad he looked at the plate. He seemed like a nice guy, but he just doesn't have it anymore. Looks like he'll probably retire without ever playing in the playoffs.

    +1. Glad we made the move though.

    LOL. Cashman is batting 0 for 2010.

    Lucky the team is playing as well as they are considering they've gotten nothing from Cashman's transactions.

    If you count Winn as a negative then Thames is a positive.

    everyone in the world knew Winn sucked, but Cashman being the genius decided to sign him anyway?

    Oh thank god.

    I had moderatly good expectations of him, thought he could really produce in a platoon situation. I was WRONG.

    He had to go. Offers absolutely ZERO to the club and I'm glad they are giving a guy like Russo a chance. But that's not really important right now.

    Randy is gone and I hope a move for a veteran bat is made.

    So your answer is to throw big money at every player to fill a roster?

    Winn was brought in to be a 4th OF, he failed miserably, but he was a pretty decent player for the Giants, either the NL is that bad, or his play fell off a cliff.

    To blame Cashman is just dumb.

    And for those that want to mark Cashman 0 for 2010, look at what Hughes is doing, it was Cashman that didn't want to deal him for Johan, and that is now paying off.

    Russo has been a nice surprise, as has Miranda. Cashman has had a lot to do with building our farm system.

    I noticed early in the season Winn's bat speed was shot.....but hey...at least we got that 1 big 3 run HR.

    The overall gap between the AL & NL is negligible. Looks like Winn just got old.

    Trust me, I like Cashman and he's won 4 WS as a GM. But sometimes you crap out and Cashman crapped out this year.

    Hopefully Granderson & Javy can turn the year around for Cashman.

    You can't hate Cash.

    He and Stick Michael are the only reason Hughes is still a Yankee.
