These are quotes by Miguel Cairo from an article in the HOME NEWS TRIBUNE by staff writer PETER ABRAHAM.

This guy gets it!

On going to the Mets: "I was staying in New York which was good. But I was very upset. "I have nothing against the Mets. The treated me great. But I wanted to come back to the Yankees," Cairo said. "I'd rather be a utility player for the Yankees than a starter for a lot of other teams. They know me here."

His feelings about the Yankees: "The Yankees were the best thing that ever happened to me."

His role in 2006: "I know my place here," he said. "My job is to be ready to do whatever they need me to do and be a good guy in the clubhouse. I think a winning team needs those kind of players."

I hope Torre read this. I'm very happy to have Cairo back - I never understood why they traded him in the first place.

He wasn't traded. He was a free agent. His former agent Alan Nero was asking too much so the Yankees went with Tony Womack. Cairo fired Nero and signed a 1 year deal with the Mets.
