Farnsworth clears waivers

Joel Sherman:

After Kyle Farnsworth proved as trustworthy as North Korea, Luis Vizcaino has become Torre's go-to man. Farnsworth, in fact, has cleared waivers, The Post has learned. Thus his greatest value now is if Brian Cashman can find a sucker to take as much of the $5.75 million the righty is owed next year as possible.

This should surprise nobody since few teams are in the market for a completely unreliable pitcher with an attitude and an absurd contract, but it was worth passing along anyways.

Since the Yanks now seem to be serious about getting rid of some of the dead weight on this team, we can only hope Mr. Farnsworth's departure is next on the agenda.
