Yankee Futility Continues

I'm shocked, shocked! to discover that Kevin Brown had another abysmal start today. My brother's right - the team needs to get rid of him.

In fact, in addition to Steve Karsay, who's already been designated for assignment, the Yankees should cut Brown, Bernie Williams and Jason Giambi. I know they get paid a ton of money, but that's a sunk cost. And meanwhile, keeping them on the roster takes up spaces from younger players who might actually improve and help the team. You only get 25 roster spots; no matter how much money they're making, does the team really need two more DHs who can't hit and an 0-4 starter with an 8.25 ERA?
