It is definitely a Tuesday now! That’s for sure. In addition to Matt’s earlier post on unusual Hall of Fame pitchers who only briefly appeared for the Yankees, and Dan’s on prospects most at risk in the upcoming Rule 5 Draft, the Roster Report Cards series will resume with Gerrit Cole. Peter will then argue why the Yankees should bring back longtime favorite Brett Gardner.
- Well, this one isn’t necessarily as much a question as it is a prompt. What the actual hell is going on with the White Sox? Tony La Russa was charged with a DUI the day before he was named manager, which was a wild enough decision anyway. The White Sox knew about it and didn’t care. This was La Russa’s second DUI. Seems bad! Jerry Reinsdorf must have desperately wanted his old pal back. Bizarre. Could he really have not found another dude more fit for the job?
