November 3, 1992: Paul O’Neill was traded by the Cincinnati Reds with Joe DeBerry to the New York Yankees for Roberto Kelly.
December 10, 1992: Jimmy Key signed as a Free Agent with the New York Yankees.
Mike Francesa, on his radio show, just said that getting O’Neill and Key before the 1993 season were two of the biggest reasons why things turned about for the Yankees…getting them away from what the team had become from 1989 to 1992.
Would you agree with that? It’s an interesting claim, if you ask me.
