Cashman is on a roll, Pudge for Farnsworth?
Farnsworth certainly improved himself this year, but losing him is no great shakes and Pudge drastically upgrades the cacthing situation. He is a free agent at the end of this season and he is having a nice year .295/.338/.417 for a catcher and that OPS of .755 is almost .200 points above Molina plus you don’t lose any defense.
The question is who goes to the 8th inning now? Is it Veras or Marte? Does this mean that JB Cox or Patterson are on their way from Scranton?
UPDATE: Girardi and Farnwsorth both cried on camera over the deal. I have no idea what to make of that.
