Oh, no! Sergio Mitre is back!

I read this morning on LoHud that the Yankees have re-signed Sergio Mitre . I don't understand this deal at all. Is there nobody else out there in the majors who can be a better mop-up guy? Mitre is a terrible pitcher. I just don't get Brian Cashman's fascination with him

The only noteworthy thing about Mitre's career as a Yankee is that he managed to be front and center in virtually every 2009 postseason celebration picture and video clip. Make that two noteworthy things -- he was also very visible in the White House photos.

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN reports the story of the deal on Twitter:
Pitcher Sergio Mitre agrees to $900,000 deal with Yankees. Could earn $200,000 more in incentives.
How about this incentive? Stop being terrible! I still have bad memories of him after he took over from David Robertson's terrible performance in the Cliff Lee playoff game at the Stadium this ALCS.

What do you think? Tell us about it!
