Former Yankees stick together


Over the past few years we’ve joked about the Pirates being the Yankees’ AAAA team. Since the Xavier Nady-Damaso Marte trade, in which the Yankees sent four players to the Pirates, three more players have gone from Scranton to Indianapolis. It appears they’ve formed a bond, likely because of their familiarity with each other. Dan McCutchen and Ross Ohlendorf, who came over in 2008, share a house in Florida with Steven Jackson and Anthony Claggett, whom the Pirates claimed when the Yankees designated them for assignment in 2009. Chuck Finder of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tells the story, which I figure appeals to Yankees fans more than Pirates.

There’s nothing I can really add to the story, so head over and check it out. I don’t think the Yanks will miss any of these pitchers, but it’s nice to see they’ve landed somewhere they can get a real shot at the major league roster.
