I thought this would be of minor interest to Yankee fans. I think Karsay gets kind've a bum rap because he got hurt, but truth be told he was pretty solid in his one healthy year in 2002. Plus I like him because he's a homeboy (Flushing). I'd give a finger to have had that
guy back at any point in the last couple years.
