In what could be interpreted as a salary dump, the Yankees traded relief pitcher Brian Bruney to the Washington Nationals for a player-to-be-named-later. My guess is that the Yankees will end up taking a younger relief pitcher from the Nats farm system and throw him into Double-A or Triple-A.
This was a good move. Bruney was hot sometimes and cold others and oft-injured. He wasn’t worth keeping around for any price. Seemed like a good guy, but this is a bizness….
