Cairo back?

Miguel Cairo was an excellent Yankee in his brief stint here in 2004. He batted .292 and played a decent second base. Forget about his season with the Mets. What stood out for me about him was that he became a clutch hitter late in games. (Remember-he won that great Boston extra inning game when Jeter almost broke his nose diving into the stands to make a circus catch)

He seems to be a perfect bench player for the Yanks and the fact that he thrived in Pinstripes makes him the best possible choice to be our back-up infielder. If he signs, add another feather in Cashman's cap this off season.
