Yanks Designate Ensberg for Assignment, Acknowledge Terrible Signing

Prior to Sunday's game in Minnesota, the Yankees made a roster move to bolster their tired bullpen by recalling Scott Patterson from AAA Wilkes-Barre. In order to make this move official, Morgan Ensberg (seen left, looking as unathletic as humanly possible!) was designated for assignment. In recent days, Ensberg's opportunities had grown extremely scarce. He hit .203 (15-for-74) with one home run and four RBIs in 28 games, and he had not appeared in a game since May 25 vs. Seattle. Ensberg's last start came on May 15 in St. Petersburg. "We thought coming out of Spring Training that we'd get a lot out of him," Girardi said. "I know his at-bats were not every day, and he's been used to being an everyday player. He brought a great attitude to the park every day and worked his rear end off. But when it came down to it, the guy had no athletic ability, couldn't hit and played a mediocre third base. Honestly, I have no idea why Cash [Yankees GM Brian Cashman] even signed this bum, he is horse manure! Good riddens, Morgie!"
