      The curse of the Gura. Maybe not as powerful as the curse of the Bambino, but powerful enough in its own right. One of the all time worst Yankee trades, losing a quality lefthander in Gura and getting back a broken down third string catcher who was so lazy won’t even help warm up pitchers in the bullpen (that’s all he was good for). Then (as if that’s not bad enough) he manages to land a gig as Yankee announcer on radio (supposedly he was a friend of Reggie’s and the team management ["The Boss"] wanted to keep him around in case a Reggie issue came up). Healy was no fool, he immediately linked himself up with Phil and parlayed the Yankee gig into a thirty + year
      run in New York. I find him an absolute bore.

      Blame Billy Martin and his hate of tennis players on the Gura deal.

      Billy definitely had a low opinion of Gura, so he has to be blamed for the Yankees trading Gura. That said, why did they have to go out and get Healy.
