How far did Brian Bruney fall?
A year ago, he pitched in three of the four ALDS games. Yesterday, the Yankees told him to go home, opting to not include the right-handed reliever around like they did with Ross Ohlendorf, Chris Britton and Jose Veras.
“I was shocked,” Bruney said.
As former Yankees manager Dallas Green once said to outfielder Stanley Jefferson: “Look in the mirror, big boy.”
