Hammong for Almonte

Well the Yankees pulled the trigger on Hammond and brought him back, but at the expense of Almonte. This is suprising to me since I don’t expect Torre to use Weaver in any situation. I suppose in an 11-2 blowout, Weaver might pitch, but I wouldn’t expect him in any other situation that that. I wonder if this move is more about next year (Yankees thinking about next year) and the damage being left off the World Series roster might do to Weaver. Hmmmm…..

Should be a good series. I expect it will take six games at least to determine a champion. Tonight could be a high scoring affair with the state of the pitching. I can’t wait.
