    What's confusing? There are links in this thread saying he signed, including confirmation from the yanks. He won't see the Bronx, but he's yankee property.

    He's probably delusional or something.

    In other news, the Yankees also signed some other guy we've never heard of. Reports are, he'll never make it above Columbus either.

    That in no way implies that he will be THE set-up man for Mo, it means he looks forward to being part of the mix of players that will set the table for Mo.

    Go easy on the guy -- he is excited to be in the Yankees system -- there is nothing wrong about that, nor is he saying anything "delusional".

    I'd be excited if the Yankees signed me too.

    Would you radther him say "I know I'll never pitch for the Yankees because I might not have what it takes but the minors will be fun."

    He couldn't make the Rangers' pitching roster and he's supposed to set up for Mo? What's the writer of this article smokin?

    not a bad strikeout...ok, gave up a double, but I guess he was right...he did set up for Mo...in the ALDS no less. Thanks for what you gave us Veras.

    Did we sign him all the way back in 05? I thought it was only last year.
