well considering stanton had some very nice years for the yankees ,your argument is completely flawed.

I think Stanton will be useful. Just getting way from the atrocious Yankees defense will help him. His raw numbers aren't that bad. I know it's a small sample size (14 innings with the Yankees) but he struck out 12 and only gave up 1 HR. He gave up a lot of hits (17) but how much of that was the Yankees' D? Plus, going to the sever Pitcher's Park in Washington will help him.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

I dont think the Yankee defense could have caught that Brian Roberts homerun, no matter how good they were.

Nope, not even if they put Randy Johnson out there to try to rob some home run balls. On the other hand, he could probably outhit Tony Womack...

Stanton is about 3 years past his prime to say the least. I fail to see the point of this thread anymore than I fail to see why people keep wasting their time talking about Quantril. Talk about a conversation about about literally nothing.

No, to bring up youngsters to see what they have. Even if they sucked, they couldn't be worse than Quantrill and Stanton were.
