Because I doubt the Cubs would have pulled him back off waivers, meaning they would have to take him and pay him.

From Boston's standpoint, they certainly don't need Lawton for their OF, so he'd be useless to them.

And while I do feel it's a slight upgrade to the Yanks lineup, it's not like he's the difference maker that gets them to the post season. Their problem has been, and remains, pitching. Ditto for the Red Sox, by the way.

To put it short: he's a good acquisition and does belong in the Yankees lineup.

I haven't even read most of this thread, but I agree with this part. ;-D
