Vizcaino most likely gone

Luis Vizcaino declined the Yankees' offer of arbitration, thus allowing him to remain as a free agent.

From his agent, Bean Stringfellow:

"We are proceeding like the Yankees aren't involved," Bean Stringfellow said yesterday morning. "I talked to Brian (Cashman) and he said he was going to call twice and hasn't. I have teams interested and Luis has played on many teams and has enjoyed them all." (New York Post)
Vizcaino was somewhat of a Joe Torre casualty during a few instances last year. He was used a lot in April and then struggled in May. He came back to form during the summer, but then struggled in September after pitching over 29 innings in July and August combined.

That said, the bullpen still needs to be improved. Mariano Rivera is really the only trustworthy member, now that Joba Chamberlain is being moved to the starting rotation.

Stop trying to bring Joba into the rotation.

It's not going to work.
