The Yankees appear to be closing in on a deal with right-hander Kyle Farnsworth, which would give New York a young, hard-throwing arm to set up closer Mariano Rivera.

One baseball official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that Farnsworth will ink a three-year contract worth $15-17 million. The deal could be announced as early as Wednesday.

3 years, $17 million would work out to $5.666 million a year. I don't really have a problem with that and I'd like to see it get done.

The New York Daily News is reporting that we are also in "serious negotiations" with Flash. I'm curious as to what type of deal that Flash would get, given Farnsworth's potential deal.

My dream was Ryan, Gordon and Sauerbeck. But, I'd be happy with Farnsworth, Gordon and Mike Myers.
