The most depressing headline of 2002
: Here it is, on the last day of the year, courtesy of the NYT: "Yanks Sign Clemens and May Seek Colón."
Ugh. ... The Yanks now have eight
starting pitchers. ... The feud between Lucchino and Steinbrenner continues. From the same article: "Larry Lucchino, president of the Red Sox, roused George Steinbrenner's wrath by referring to the Yankees as the evil empire after they beat the Red Sox to Contreras a week ago. Steinbrenner, the Yankees' principal owner, needs no more reason than that comment to direct Cashman to make sure the Red Sox do not acquire Colón." ... They're going to sign Colón just to spite us. Larry, please, apologize. Say something. But just back off.
