Why?

Why do the Yankees keep bringing back Sergio Mitre? I have detailed my disdain for Mitre here and here and here and plenty of other places, so I won’t rehash my objections.

What bothers me about this move is that I have seen a lot of people saying it’s “only” for 900k. That’s true, but the Yankees signed Marcus Thames for 900k last year. Plus, Mitre will now take a spot from someone like a Romulo Sanchez or perhaps an Ivan Nova, pitchers with more promise and lower salaries. I don’t know why the Yankees keep knocking on this door, but I can only hope they won’t compound the problem by offering Dustin Moseley a contract. One mediocre righty is enough.

Back when we hear the non-tender decisions later tonight.
