Bellhorn for Arod?

I would have done that trade. But when you're the NY Yankees this year, you have to do what you have to do. Not only did they pick up Embree with his 7.04 ERA, but then they went and picked up Bellhorn with his 109 K's and .324 OBP this year. And would anyone have guessed Bellhorn's first job would be to fill in for an ailing A-Rod? Hah! Bellhron promptly went 0-4.

It's a wonder the Yankees are doing as well as they are, when they keep picking up anyone who can throw the ball anywhere near home plate!

This should not be taken as a disparagement of either Embree or Bellhorn for whom I have a great deal of respect for. Last year's performance by both were key, especially in the playoffs. But when it comes to this year's performance, there's a reason they were both waived.
