The Yanks didn't move the fences in for Clark. Or at least they claimed they didn't. http://www.nytimes.com/1988/01/24/sports/sports-of-the-times-new-measurements.html

I, for one, hope he doesn\'t even crack 700.

This is only one of many slights and abuses that make me wish I\'d grown up a fan of a different team. Though that run up to the millenium continues to go a long way.

Posting from the stretch, are you, Rany?

Oh, and would anyone take A-Rod in a trade (assuming he\'d approve one)? He\'s poison. At this point, I would take a bag of peanuts and Larry Bowa in exchange.

I\'m with you on Texeira. But the rotation you prescribe lacks even the semblance of an ace. Wang\'s been great, but he\'s also been lucky (aside from the injury). Low to very low strikeout rate, plus a relatively high walk rate. Plus generous run support (i.e., more than 5 runs per). He\'s gone deep into games, to be sure, but that\'s because he\'s been lucky. Chamberlain won\'t pitch enough innings to be a real ace, even if he continues to dominate. Hughes and Kennedy are still huge question marks. I love Moose, but he\'s wicked old. And the league is sure to figure him out in his new finesse incarnation. Pettitte eats innings, but that\'s pretty much all he\'s good for. That, and the postseason, which we won\'t make without someone like Sabathia. And by someone like Sabathia, I mean Sabathia. He may not be perfect, but he\'s the best available.

No mention of the fact that he can\'t hit lefties? His OBP against lefties is over 200 points lower than his OBP against righties. If I\'m not mistaken, it was another BP-er from whom I gained this wisdom just recently.

Yanks are a tough team to love, I\'ll give you that. Having invested so much time and emotion into them, though, I couldn\'t turn away now, even if I wanted to. Still, articles like this do sting. A lot.
