Yankees Trade for Pudge Rodríguez

Starting to smell like another AL East title in the Bronx:

In a move that was conceived and completed in less than six hours, the Yankees acquired Rodríguez from the Detroit Tigers for reliever Kyle Farnsworth on Wednesday. Five years after leading the Florida Marlins to a title, and two years after lifting Detroit to a pennant, Rodríguez becomes the regular catcher for the Yankees.

I have no idea what Detroit was thinking.
