I agree, it's basically money that Hank found under the cushions of the couch. I don't see why everyone is making a big deal out of it. Obviously he isn't very good, hence the 1 year $3.25M. He is definitely a lot better option than Vizcaino. The Yankees have a lot of potentially good arms that they're gonna throw against the wall, and whatever sticks will pass Hawkins on the depth chart. Hawkins just assures them a quasi mediocre reliever. If he sucks, they'll just DFA him and it will be no big deal to lose $3.25M. People ridiculing Hank are just reaching for some Yankee bashing.
