Our bullpen is gassed. We need some disposable arms for the stretch. I've peered into the crystal ball that is the New York Post and found the answer:
Seems as though he could use the cash to get caught up on his credit card bills:
Ex-Yankee pitcher Hideki Irabu - once ridiculed by George Steinbrenner as a "fat, pus-y toad" - was arrested in Osaka, Japan, today for allegedly assaulting a bartender after drinking 20 mugs of beer, a police official said.
Irabu, 39, became angered after his credit card was rejected. He allegedly pushed the bartender against the wall, pulled his hair and smashed at least nine liquor bottles. The bartender sustained no injuries.
Hair pulling? Smashing liquor bottles? Sounds like this guy still has the fire. 20 mugs of beer? He still has the stamina, too.
