Evil Ones Sign Former Red Sox Reliever Tommy Layne

He won FenwayNation's 2015 "Under The Radar" Award for exceptional relief work in last year's Red Sox bullpen. Now, Tommy Layne is a Bronx Embalmer. The Yankees announced the signing of the 31-year-old lefty to a major-league contract after Boston released him last week. Layne had complied a 3.77 ERA for The Carmine Hose this season—over 28.2 innings of work. The Pinstriped Posers, of course, have recently gotten rid of two lefties in their 'pen—Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman—so this move makes sense for them. Not to mention what Layne might do to us over the next three games at Fenway Park.
