    Alex Belth at Bronx Banter has a feature up today on Jimmy “The Toy Cannon” Wynn.

    When I hear Wynn’s name, I think of 1977. The Yankees had acquired the (then) 35-year old to be their DH that season. Wynn cracked a homer on Opening Day at the Stadium in 1977 – and it was looking like the Yankees had a find.

    But, he tanked from there and was a bust. That tater in the Bronx at the Opener would be the last one in the Toy Cannon’s career.

    The Yankees released Wynn on July 14, 1977.

      I would’ve liked to see him play when he was in Houston.
