So it should have surprised nobody that general manager Brian Cashman made upgrading the staff one of his top priorities in the off-season. But at this point, you can only conclude that Cashman didn’t succeed as well as he did in filling needs at leadoff and in center field by signing Johnny Damon.
One of more unlikely occurrences in the 2005 season was the combination of Small and Shawn Chacon going 17-3 with a 3.02 ERA in 21 starts and 29 games down the stretch after toiling anonymously in Columbus and Colorado, respectively, in the first half. That’s not likely to happen again.
What? Scott Erickson and Darrell Rasner won’t go 17-3 in 2006?!?
