BASEBALL: Old Man Bronx River

Jesse Orosco joins Armando Benitez in the Yankee bullpen. Which should help; Orosco's uses are limited to 1-2 lefty batters and he hasn't pitched well this season, but his performance in recent years suggests he can still help in a pinch.

The Yankee pitching staff when Orosco was a rookie:

SP Tommy John
SP Ron Guidry
SP Luis Tiant
SP Catfish Hunter
SP Ed Figueroa
SP Jim Beattie

CL Rich Gossage
RP Ron Davis
RP Jim Kaat
RP Ken Clay
RP Don Hood

Also, if you haven't checked it out, John Sickles of ESPN has a good rundown on the prospects dealt thus far this trade season.

We used to call him Jesse "Oh No!" Orosco.
