yankeeman161 Posted July 17, 2005 Share Posted July 17, 2005 It seems with all of the Yankees pitching troubles and the uncertainty of who would pitch tonight aganist the hated Red Sox without a 5th starter, yesterday, the Yanks aquire Al Leiter from the Marlins for a player to be named later. Leiter was actually drafted in the 2nd round of the 1984 draft by the Yankees and played 7 games for them from 1987-1989 Without Brown, Pavano, Wright and most recently Wang, the Yankees have managed to stay 1 1/2 games behing Boston in the AL East. So, can Al Leiter help the Yankees pitching to overtake the Sox and win their 8th straight division title? Yankeeman says, that a veteran like Leiter can totally be the answer in the starting rotation.P.S. In an unrelated news item, the D-Rays designate Hideo Nomo for assignment, so another great arm for the Yanks to look at. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
