We normally reserve our criticism for Murray Chass. But George King is probably even a bigger ass. Maybe its that Chass works for a respected paper and takes shots at the Sox all the time (not to mention that he grew up hating the Yankees as Pirates fan). And I would wear my fingers out if I responded to all his nonsense, but today he had two that cracked me up.
"If Torre opts for 11 pitchers, they will be Randy Johnson, Mike Mussina, Chien-Ming Wang, Jaret Wright, Shawn Chacon, Mariano Rivera, Kyle Farnsworth, Tanyon Sturtze, Ron Villone, Aaron Small and Myers.
Of course, there are teams tracking Wright this spring in case the Yankees make him available."
IF the Yankees make him available? Are you kidding me? He's more available than this girl.
And then this gem:
"Other than deciding between 11 or 12 pitchers and having the WBC hijack four very important players, Torre's 11th camp has no stones in the pool."
Yes, the players were hijacked. Steinbrenner would be proud. Maybe if anything happens to Howard Rubenstein, you could get a job with the NYY.
