Kyle Farnsworth really lost it this year; he’s striking no one out but still walking too many. Last year he at least racked up the Ks. The Yankees would love to get out from some of the $5.5MM they owe him in 2008.
A few teams have kicked the tires on the Farnz, like the Rockies, Phillies, and Devil Rays. But maybe it would be best for him to go back to the site of his last success, Detroit. George King writes that the Tigers are interested, if the money can be worked out. This makes a lot of sense to me. The Tigers aren’t desperate for relievers, and this risk would be more in money than players. Unlike Eric Gagne, who would cost both. Maybe Chuck Hernandez can right the ship for Farnsworth.
