George, Cashman and Torre have apparently lost their collective mind.
Tony Clark...WHY?

Who knows what George is thinking most of the time? Lol. :-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I don't understand taking Clark over Karros or Galarraga... :-S

I don't understand this deal from Clark's perspective. He's not old and he could start on some teams.

putting the Bombers in the market for someone who would be willing to play about 25-30 games.


I guess he'll be content to ride the pine the majority of the season for a chance to get a ring.

They would be better off giving their minor leaguer Seguinol a chance. Clark is awful...what is the point?

The guy was a pretty legitimate major league hitter for a three year string.

31, 34, 32 hr/99, 103, 117 rbi/.280,.291,.276

Somebody hit the guy with a big suck stick after 2000, but maybe the Yankees can revitalize his career. If they can't, they just throw him away like they do all the guys they signed and didn't work out. They got the money to do it. Maybe they know some Japanese coach that can find the hole in his swing like Tom Selleck in the movie Mr. Baseball. From the Yanks perspective though, where failure in the standings is worse than wasting money on washed up players that might do well, I can see why they take chances on guys like Clark that have shown potential to be pretty good rather than sign the "steady" production players that get 15 hr 70 rbi that you know will be mediocre.

Was just about to say that. He seemed to get the hit we needed every time.
