Yankees - DFAed Stanton and Quantrill

New York Yankees - Designated P “Bloody” Paul Quantrill and P Mike “Secretary of War” Stanton to be executed or to whatever occupation Tony Fossas has now; recalled P Wayne Franklin and OF Bubba Crosby.

While I appreciate the gesture of sending two more non-performers off the team (or would if I wanted the Yankees to do well), Wayne Franklin and Bubba Crosby are pretty unimpressive players in their own right.  You can almost understand a name player like Stanton being on the team over Colter Bean, but it’s hardly like the Boss shouted at Cashman “Leave Bean down!  Bring me that guy who sucked for the Brewers!”

I don't think that Kansas City will go after Quantrill, especially after what he did to Lawrence.

And when you consider how strong New York's reaction was to Stanton a few years ago, it's remarkable that he ever showed his face in the city. Memories are short!

I'm pretty shocked that the yankees gave up on Stanton so quickly. His peripherals haven't been that bad. Have a lot of his inherited runners scored?

So, uh... Wayne Franklin sucks, huh?
   5. Jefferson Posted: July 02, 2005 at 02:28 AM (#1445222)
Wayne Franklin is a real sparkplug. He generates instant offense whenever he appears. Too bad it's for the other team.

Franklin/Anderson can't possibly be any worse than Stanton/Quantrill. I hope.

6 of 27, according to Baseball Prospectus. That's a whole lot of men to be facing when you come in. Only 10 other relievers have faced that many. And 6 of 27 doesn't seem that bad.

6 of 27 is nothing compared to the 50% he was allowing for the Mets last season. Absolutely atrocious. If its really only 6/27 this season, the Yanks should consider themselves lucky as heck.
   9. SG Posted: July 02, 2005 at 07:27 AM (#1445481)
Quantrill's been traded to the Padres for Redding and May.
   10. Benji Posted: July 02, 2005 at 12:13 PM (#1445524)
Hey you're giving them ideas! A team that thinks Buddy Groom has "trade value" is probably just days away from signing Tony Fossas!
   11. Darren Posted: July 02, 2005 at 12:45 PM (#1445529)
Colter Bean cannot make in the wasteland that is the Yankees pen and couldn't make it in the wasteland that is the Red Sox pen last spring. What is it about him?

DARREN -

MY (OUR?) FAVORITE CLIPPER CAN'T SEEM TO GET HIS SPEED TO THE LOW 80'S...

COULTER CONSISTENTLY HITS ABOUT 77-79 ON THE RADAR GUN!!!

I CAN SEE HOW SCOUTS WOULD THINK THAT HIS LACK OF SPEED AND DELIVERY MEANS THAT HE CAN FOOL AAA AND AAAA HITTERS, BUT NOT BE EFFECTIVE AGAINST A BIG LEAGUE LINEUP THAT ISN'T KANSAS CITY...

BUT FOR SURE, HE DESERVES A CHANCE, HE'S GOT NOTHING LEFT TO DO IN AAA...

Maybe he can ride with the Devil (Rays).

Traded to San Diego? That's no good.

Dammit, we're not selling Camaros here! I would think that, with how desperate both the Sox and Yanks have been, and how much the former pride themselves on thinking outside the box, one of them would have given him a chance to fail. I'm not saying I'm certain he wouldn't fail, but why not a chance? Isn't that how Chad Bradford won Voros all kinds of fantasy leagues, anyway?
   15. Cowboy Popup Posted: July 03, 2005 at 12:09 AM (#1446119)
Quantrill's going to do well in Petco. I would have thought the same thing about May. Pad's defense can't be too bad right? They've got Greene and probably another good defender or two (Roberts, how's Burroughs?). And given the Yanks success with bringing in pitchers, I'd say that even though this is a smart trade, the Yanks will lose in the end.

and yet wait 10 days and the pads had him
