Farewell, Sweet Prince

Much, much too late, Angel Berroa has been exorcised from the Yankee lineup.

It's a shame that this didn't happen earlier in the season, partially because we had to expose several reasonable prospects to the rest of the league to keep him, and partially because Berroa had a -6 OPS+ for the Yankees this year. Read that again--and be amazed. I wasn't even aware that a normalized statistic could be negative. That means that Angel Berroa is more than 100% worse than the average offensive player. Isn't that impossible?
