Yankees Pick Up David Aardsma

Over the last six weeks, the New York Yankees front office has been extremely busy with trades and free agency moves.

The Yankees Are Killing Me

I honestly thought the last 2 and a half months were bad enough with everything the Yankees' Front Office did (or didn't) do during free agency. I was able to overcome the urge to drive off a cliff when Cliff Lee got away (pun was intentional), and I was able to stay away from sharp objects when the Yankees acquired Mark Prior and Bartolo Colon instead of Carl Pavano and Justin Duchscherer.
