Big Unit in Pinstripes, perhaps Starting by Friday?: With El Duque joining the ever-growing list of Yanks either injured, on the DL, or about to go on the DL, a move for a bona fide starter is more urgent than ever. According to this article, it will be a 3-way deal involing the Padres along with the yanks and the Diamondbacks.
Hmmm...didn't I recently suggest hereabouts that it would take the special Brian Cashman touch to make a deal come to fruition?
The 31st is right around the bend. Watch for a flurry o flast-minute deals!!
5 Ks in One Inning!: Some guys have all the luck. And then there's this minor league pitcher from Lancaster, CA, with no luck at all.
Clemens, Johnson -- WHAT ABOUT BENSON!?!??: In today's NY Daily News there's an article by Bill Madden (he's a reliable, credible writer, as opposed to anything one might read in The NY Post) suggesting that The Rocket might be back in pinstripes before the trading deadline, and that Randy Johnson would welcome the opportunity to conclude his career in pinstripes, at a contender. And opposing his former teammate Schilling. But what about Benson? Doesn't he make more sense for The Yanks, long term? And, as always, with just three weeks and one day until the deadline, watchout for a surprise deal, a great move, perhaps a three-team sort of swap, engineered by Yanks GM Brian Cashman. He's the cool maneuverer who makes things happen.
