Quote of the Day: Brian Cashman is keeping Ben Francisco around to “piss everybody off”
The Yankees designated infielder Alberto Gonzalez for assignment this afternoon in order to make room for the newly-acquired Reid Brignac. Some thought that Ben Francisco’s roster spot could be in jeopardy, as he’s hitting just .114 (5-for-44) in 21 games, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman joked to reporters today that he’s keeping him around for a very important reason.

Cashman takes his trolling duties seriously. You have to respect that.
