From the Post -
In what only can be described as a strange twist, the Tigers have an interest in taking Kyle Farnsworth off the Yankees’ hands.
According to multiple sources, the Tigers are looking to make a deal that would bring Farnsworth back to the team he pitched 46 games for in 2005. Ideally, the Tigers would like to add Texas closer Eric Gagne but he likely will balk at a deal that sends him to a team where he can’t close.
Tigers scout Dick Egan was at last night’s Yankees’ 7-1 win over the Royals in which Farnsworth didn’t pitch in. What the Yankees would get back depends on how much money the Tigers want to pay on Farnsworth’s salary.
This does make me a little nervous – only because Humberto Sanchez, Kevin Whelan and Anthony Claggett have done so well for the Yankees since they joined the organization. Brian Cashman is way over his head when he has to deal with a guy like Dave Dombrowski.
Still, to get Farnsworth off the team could be a plus – by subtraction alone.
