From the Post:
Looking to upgrade their backup catching situation the Yankees acquired Sal Fasano from the Phillies last night for an undisclosed minor leaguer, The Post has learned.
Fasano had been designated for assignment by the Phillies last weekend and immediately caught the Yankees’ attention because he was with them in spring training in 2004 and spent the season with Columbus (Triple-A).
Fasano, 34, is expected to replace Kelly Stinnett.
Fasano plays with some emotion. But, offensively, to be candid, the difference between Kelly Stinnett and Sal Fasano is the same difference between the Oscar-worthiness of Howard The Duck and Can’t Stop The Music.
Maybe Cash just likes guys who look like Rocky Balboa?
I think I’m going to like watching Fasano play. But, I’m not sure how this is an upgrade.
