Yanks sign Sexson

Richie Sexson

The recently dumped Richie Sexson reportedly has found a new home with the New York Yankees:

First baseman Richie Sexson and the New York Yankees reached a deal Thursday, a week after the Seattle Mariners cut the slumping slugger.

A person familiar with the contract said Sexson would be paid a prorated share of the $390,000 minimum salary. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made.

Sexson has had better days, but I think he could be a good pickup for the Yankees. He's either going to A) overshadow his strikeouts with a lot of home runs or B) overshadow everything with four strikeouts per game. I'm not quite sure why he's a Yank though, considering the Sexson clone Jason Giambi is also there.
