Kevin Millwood has opted out of his contract with NYY, after they didn't add him to big league rosterIt's difficult for me to say anything other than good riddance, as Millwood's attitude has left a great deal to be desired. That, coupled with his well below-average 2010, 5+ FIP in three minor league starts thus far, and low-80s fastball would have likely left the 36-year-old righty with Scranton for the foreseeable future. Further, the Yankees appear to be basing promotions on merit, and Noesi, Phelps, and Warren have been solid thus far - they also have far more value to the team than Millwood, both for the Yankees and for potential trade partners.
