Yanks get Nomo

EW YORK - The
New York Yankees claimed right-hander Hideo Nomo off waivers from the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays on Wednesday and signed him to a minor league contract.

The acquisition of the 37-year-old Nomo marks the second time this month the Yankees have picked up a veteran pitcher that was discarded by the team he started the season with to help fill a hole in the Yankees' beleaguered rotation.

Al Leiter, who was set to make his third start for the Yankees on Wednesday night against Minnesota, was acquired on July 16 from the
Florida Marlins.

Nomo was released by Tampa Bay July 25 after being designated for assignment on July 16. He was 5-8 with a 7.24 ERA for the Devil Rays.

The first Japanese-born player to appear in the majors after playing at the top level in Japan, Nomo has a record of 123-109 in a career that began when he was the 1995 NL Rookie of the Year for the
Los Angeles Dodgers.

Geeeez, well, at least it's a minor league contract so they got him for peanuts and it doesn't guarantee he's gonna play. I think the Yanks are just rolling dice here.

Yeah, I agree. And I don't think this is a bad move - they want to see what he can do, they're not claiming him and starting him in Fenway.

The team has no other option; he's another arm at least. Beggars can't be chosers.

Ok Strasil you had to know this one was coming so hopefully you'll be a good sport about it (or maybe not).

I believe the saying goes "be careful what you wish for"

Nice to see the pitcher "who doesn't even belong on a major league roster" find a home :-b

Sorry you feel that way. You know full well if the shoe was on the other foot something would have been said.

It's not like I came here and said "Haha you're forced to sign Nomo, he sucks, blah blah blah". Then yes, that would be trolling.

I don't see how this is trolling when I prefaced it by basically saying no ill will intended

Besides, it's only going to get turned on me anyways so what's it matter? It's not like I'm not expecting it and can't handle it.

Geez lighten up

No, you did not.

Stick to your own boards or PM with that stuff. I don't recall having once posted the in the Boston forum to make fun of someone (or at all) because its not my place to do that and this isn't yours.

Whatever though.

Last I checked blank this is a public board so therefore I can post wherever I'd like.

It's a joke. Can anyone here take a joke? As I said, in all likelihood it'll be turned around on me, we'll all laugh and that will be that.

No need for the high horse stuff. This is a public board and anyone can post anywhere at anytime.
