Yankees Reach Tentative Agreement with Sexson

The Yankees, who have no interest in Barry Bonds*, have reached a tentative agreement with Seattle send-off Richie Sexson.  

Before his release, Sexson was hitting .218 with 11 homers this year, but was hitting .344 against lefties.  This sounds like a move the Dodgers would make - using success against lefties to justify the signing of sub-.220 hitter - but the Yankees beat them to it.  

By the way, Sexson's "success" against lefties is based on 61 at-bats.
