A crack of daylight for Bubba?
Looks like there is a small chance for Bubba Crosby
to make the Yankees opening day roster, afterall! Take that! ;) With Bernie and Shef out for a spell, the Yankees will need another OF. Darren Bragg, anyone? Nah, we here at The Greatest Game are rooting for Bubba! There aren't enough Bubbas in baseball. There are plenty of them here in the South, but not enough in baseball.
"General manager Brian Cashman said the team also would look at Darren Bragg, a non-roster invitee, and Bubba Crosby, acquired in the Robin Ventura trade. Ruben Sierra is considered too much of a defensive liability to play the field regularly.
Crosby has limited major- league experience, but hopes to make an impact. 'Gary Sheffield is Gary Sheffield and I can't compete with that,' Crosby said. 'There are other categories I could compete in, such as runs scored and things like that.'"
Runs scored? Um, Bubba, you ain't gonna compete with Shef for runs scored, that's for sure.
