"It is better to be an alcoholic than a Yankee fan." -- Alphonso • "Maybe the Yankees can 'buy' new fans. I'm sure ready to sell." -- El Duque
This time, you're wrong, El Duque. Russ Canzler is the Dooley Womack of the current free agent market. Like Dooley Womack, he's a franchise player, a fearsome presence in the dugout. The sight of Russ Canzler in the on-deck circle will unnerve even a Cy Young winner. His acquisition promises a return to the dizzying standards of 1966-1968, the era in which Mantle, with Dooley Womack on the mound, hit his 500th home run. Welcome Russ Canzler to the soon-to-be (again) World Champion New York Yankees!
He hails from the same hometown as Joe Maddon (Hazleton, PA) which happens to be my hometown as well. So there's that . . .
Yow! They just designated Chris Dickerson for assignment because of this guy! Dickerson gets bumped for a Cleveland reject? Say it ain't so!
