The Yanks just got Matt Lawton. The guy's not great, batting .268 this season and the same over his whole career. But I have a bad feeling about this -- remininscent of the late-season acquisitions they made around '99-'01, who totally overperformed and really helped pick up the rest of the team. Hell, their acquisitions this year (Chacon and Small, even maybe Leiter) have been surpisingly good. I hope I'm wrong.
In other news, Michael Young has snuck past Johnny Damon for the lead in AL batting. Damon's been hitting .256 in August.
Finally, I've had the word "Crun-chew-eezy" stuck in my head all day. I don't know why, but please somebody make it stop.
