Yankees Considering Sexson?

From Joel Sherman of the New York Post:

The Yankee problems against lefty pitching are so dire that they will meet in the next day or so to determine whether to make a play for Richie Sexson, Hardball has learned.

The Yankees have a .729 OPS against southpaws this year, which ranks 7th in the American League.  Sexson has a 1.045 OPS against lefties this year, but it’s only been 70 plate appearances.  He was nothing special against lefties in 2006-07.  Peter Abraham offers his take on the idea of signing Sexson over at his blog.
