DateQuestionAnswer
2010-04-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)I was looking over Yankees Opening Day rosters from past years. I do believe that Dave LaPoint (1990) may be the worst Opening Day SP in franchise history. Gosh those were some dark days.
(dianagramr from NYC)
Indeed. Those seasons (really 1982-1992) are the lens through which I look at the Yankees even today. I know that not everything works out the way you plan it to. (Steven Goldman)
