Sweeny Murti wraps up the Pudge Rodriguez trade from a Yankees perspective – along with some reaction from Brian Cashman and Joe Girardi. The video via SNY.tv:
It will be interesting to see who takes over the “8th inning role” now – with Farnsworth gone. In the Yankees 107 games this season, to date, Farnsworth pitched in the 8th inning 30 times.
Jose Veras and Edwar Ramirez have both pitched for the Yankees 14 times in the 8th inning, so far, this season. So, those two will probably get first crack at it…for now.
