Nomo goes to the Yankees

This is one I didn’t expect.

As desperate as the Yankees are with their pitching situation, I didn’t foresee them looking to Hideo Nomo to ease their problems.  Nomo has gone downhill fast since his 16-win 2003 season.  Last year’s fiasco of a season ended with an ERA over 8.00. 

This year has not fared much better for Hideo.  Though he has showed some signs of mediocrity, he for the most part has stunk.  In his 18 starts, he has allowed 5 or more runs in 10 of them.  Right now, he is 5-8 with a 7.24 ERA. 

Nomo will currently be signed to a minor league contract to get some work in as he hasn’t pitched in 10 days. 

Good luck to Hideo while he pitches in the lion’s den of Yankees Stadium.  Who knows?  Maybe he’ll thrive there for his last stand.
