Seems Kenny Williams is mad at the Yankees for claiming Jeff Marquez

Ballantini @ CSN:

Williams felt it was a formality, designating pitcher Jeff Marquez for assignment upon the return from the DL of Mark Teahenon Sunday and settling him back into the rotation at AAA Charlotte, where he had compiled a sub-4.00 ERA for the Knights. Then New York Yankees GM Brian Cashman stepped in to muck up that plan.

“No I didn’t,” Williams said when asked whether he thought there would be any problem with holding on to Marquez. “Ask Brian Cashman. Ask Brian Cashman. He got a message [from me]. But that’s the risk you take.” … “The truth of the matter is we would have tried to re-sign [Marquez] and put him back in uniform today with Jake’s injury, Williams said, before adding with a smile, “but the Yankees have a greater need right now.”

You should be mad for trading Nick Swisher to the Yankees for peanuts Kenny.
