Yankees Acquire Bergenfield, NJ Native Villone
Ron Villone, former #1 pick of the Seattle Mariners, was acquired today by the Yankees from the Marlins for minor league RP Ben Julianel. Villone was pretty damned good against lefties in 2005 (.222/.324/.256). Essentially, all lefties against him became Tony Womack... and thi was a down year for him. He's scheduled to make only $2M in 2006 (which is a bargain in this market) and gives a second lefty to Torre's bullpen.
