Rosenthal: Yankees close to signing Hawkins

From Ken Rosenthal:

The Yankees, rebuilding their setup corps, are close to signing free-agent right-hander LaTroy Hawkins to a one-year contract believed to be worth approximately $3.75 million, according to major-league sources.

Hawkins, 35, will help fill the void created by the loss of righty Luis Vizcaino, who declined salary arbitration from the Yankees, and righty Joba Chamberlain, who is expected to move into the starting rotation. (FoxSports.com)
I don't really like this idea. Hawkins has been on a steady decline since 2004 and the Yankees are probably better off trying to develop a bullpen from within their organization.

But it's only a one-year deal, so it won't hurt that much if he's terrible.

how can you say he has been on a steady decline when he pitched well last year?
