    It has to be the 1989 staff, right?

      When you look at those 1989-1991 Yankees, they were really terrible.

      Look at that, and mostly on the “right side of thirty”…..

      Wow, that’s pretty ugly too!

      FWIW, today, Lance McCullers’ kid is a hot shot prospect.

      @ Steve L.:I’ve been curious if that’s who it was. Remember when the Yankee brass was calling Lance, “The Baby Goose?” Quite a PR, BS machine, even then……

      With the trades of Candelaria, Henderson & Pags, and Winfield out for the year (and traded the following), you think the Yanks were rebuilding? But if they were rebuilding, why trade Leiter?

      To be fair, they started the year with Tommy John and Ron Guidry in camp :)

      To think that they couldn’t find a spot for Guidry in the rotation, despite the guys they were running out there.

      Indeed he is. The Astros made a heist by targeting him with their second pick and provided a blueprint for how teams should target signability players under the new CBA rules governing the draft.
