Four Old Yanks Retire
Goodbye Paul Quantrill. You were pretty effective before Joe Torre ruined your arm and career.
So long, Gabe White. While not an effective pitcher, you gave the Yankees a look that fit Giambi's old "Rake like an All-Star, party like a rock star, hammer like a porn star." They already had a musician and plenty of all stars, so for that we thank you and your moustache.
Happy trails, "Flash." You really should have retired years ago as you were a worse hitter than Tony Womack the last few years, but you did fix a flaw in the Unit's mechanics that somehow the greatest pitching coach in the history of time couldn't find, and for that, we thank you.
Bon Voyage Al Leiter, and thanks for giving me false hope in the Yankee comittment to their rookies in the 80's, for that gutsy start at Fenway, and the relief appearance against the Angels (the one where you got us out of a big jam).
