Clemens has very good career numbers against the Orioles (19-12, 3.52 in 45 games).  Burres has previously only faced the Yanks in relief (0-0, 5.40 in 3 games).

On this day in 1995, the New York Yankees traded minor league pitchers Marty Janzen, Jason Jarvis, and Mike Gordon to the Toronto Blue Jays for pitcher David Cone.  In a separate deal, the team also trades OF/DH Danny Tartabull to the Oakland Athletics for OF/DH Ruben Sierra and minor league pitcher Jason Beverlin.

I'd say those deals worked out just fine -- even though Sierra was run out of town a year later.
