Kyle Farnsworth didn't disappoint ... Yankee fans last night

Over at our sister paper, the Village Voice, Crazy Yankee Chick has dubbed Royals reliever (and former Yankee) Kyle Farnsworth "the human white flag" and "a human victory cigar" (hey, isn't that Darko Milicic?) after last night's 4-3 loss to the Yanks.

Farnsworth's mere presence was enough to give the Yankee faithful a surge of optimism, according to Crazy Yankee Chick.

The Yanks scored 2 in the 9th, and an infield "single" (if it can be called that, though I'd say "Farnsworth's Defensive Indifference" is a better term) off the bat of Juan Miranda, marked the 15th walk-off and the 50th come-from-behind win in this season.


Hell, even the lead story on the Royals' Web site is titled: "Farnsworth melts against former club in defeat." The good news (?): The game didn't matter for either club. The Yanks are in the playoffs and the Royals are thinking about next year.
