And we let Raul Ibanez go... why?
Travis Hafner and Raul Ibanez later. I will have analysis, as well as one of our writers here on BYB, because everyone in Yankeeland is scratching their head on this one. That being said, I don't want to dilute the fact that we DO now have a lefty bat with power in Travis Hafner.
According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, HERE, the deal with Hafner is a 1 year deal, a low base salary plus incentives. He'll be the DH. There is no doubt Hafner will be effective in the Bronx. I like him, I always have although, I would have liked him better if it was 2004.
Credit to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, HERE... he had the story first. Good work.
Welcome Travis Hafner... don't get hurt.
