Yankees Make Some Roster Moves, Hurt Greg's Brain

"So...I'm no longer grounded? Thanks Dad. OH BOY, MISTER SOFTEE! CAN I HAVE SOME MONEY?"

Mood Music - You Showed Me by The Lightning Seeds

It's been a busy day in the merry ol' land of pinstripes. In a kind of "just kidding" move, the Yankees call up David Phelps from Class-A Tampa and send Ryota Igarashi back down to Triple-A. One wonders why Phelps was not called up in the first place. One probably doesn't give a flying bunt either because Ryota Igarashi will not be able to come into a close game. I think we're all the better for that fact alone. But wait, that's not all.

In another possible display of Cashman's bullpen forged from the dark arts, the Yankees have signed yet another former Amazin' bullpen addition in RHP Chris Schwinden. The Yankees will be his fourth team of record this year so, um, yeah there's that. I've seen him pitch for the Mets and the only saving grace from this move is that he's being sent down to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Hopefully he doesn't drive SWB season ticket holder/tweeter Jedi Master A-Rod crazy. With Schwinden schwindling his way into the Yankees organization, recently picked up Danny Farquhar has been quickly DFA'd without ever making an appearance for Double-A Trenton.

Seriously, what's going on here?
