He's just such an inconsistent pitcher.

Yanks get Hinske in swap with Bucs
http://pittsburgh.pirates.mlb.com/ne...=.jsp&c_id=pit

Quote:
The Yankees acquired veteran utilityman Eric Hinske on Tuesday from the Pirates in exchange for two Minor Leaguers, right-hander Casey Erickson and outfielder Eric Fryer.

Hinske, a 31-year-old left-handed hitter who was part of Boston's 2007 World Series champions, batted .255 in 54 games with the Pirates. He had one home run and had driven in 11 runs.

The Yankees also received cash considerations along with Hinske, whose 2009 contract is for $1.5 million.

The Pirates said they will purchase the contract of outfielder Garrett Jones from Triple-A Indianapolis to fill Hinske's roster spot. Jones is expected to join the Pirates in Pittsburgh in time for Tuesday night's game against the Chicago Cubs.

Fryer will be assigned to Lynchburg and Erickson will be assigned to West Virginia. Both are Class A teams. Hinske is a former AL Rookie of the Year, earning those honors in 2002 with the Toronto Blue Jays, who had made him their 17th-round selection in the 1998 First-Year Player Draft.

Erickson, 23, was 3-3 with a 2.25 ERA in 21 games, including three starts, with Single-A Charleston. He was the Yankees' 10th-round pick in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft.

Fryer, also 23 and a 10th-round pick in 2007, was batting .250 with 15 extra-base hits and 24 RBIs at Single-A Tampa.
eh, at this point ill take as many young arms as we can get. Really excited to see Garrett Jones play.

Kovacevic says the teams have agreed in principle to exchange Lastings Milledge and Joel Hanrahan for Nyjer Morgan and Sean Burnett.
Nyjer was 29 and not going to help us win now. Lastings has plenty of upside.

I hope Milledge keeps his cool. This is the same guy who blew up on his manager in the dugout last year.

I can't disagree with this move, but man am I going to miss Nyjer.

He wasn't really in the cards going forward, but he was an absolute wild card out there. His speed can do anything at anytime.

Lot of fun to watch, but, like the Nady trade, the FO pulled the trigger at the right time.

ironic how both the players in our sigs were traded this year (McLouth and Morgan)


I like the Bucs-Nats trade. Milledge has a lot of potential and more power than Morgan. Also Last year Milledge was 14/24 (14 homers, 24 stolen bases) Not much loss of speed. His attitude could be troublesome but great talent is always a plus.

Its a love or hate situation here, but I support the trade, Morgan is a good player, but wasnt really going to help the Pirates in the future.

I am actually really excited to see Milledge play. Milledge and McCutchen could be awesome together.

when is he expected to be ready to be back up in the majors? i know he had just started his rehab in the Gulf Coast League. Id imagine if he was starting out in that low of a league that maybe its gonna take a little while for him to get here
