BASEBALL: "Former Yankee Baseball Star"

I was incensed Sunday night when watching NBC and the teaser for the 11pm news, referring to Dwight Gooden's arrest after a fight with his girlfriend, said, "a former Yankee baseball star in in trouble with the law." Former Yankee? You say that in the very city where Gooden won the Cy Young, the Rookie of the Year . . . oh, the indignity.

On the other hand, as my wife pointed out: "if he's beating his wife, let him be a Yankee."

I'm with your wife on this one. And that goes double for Strawberry.

I second Mr Furious and Mrs Crank. Doc is a bum. Since the Dodgers no longer call NYC home, that makes him a Yankee in my book.

What about Wally Backman? Is he a former Arizona Diamondback?

This is like that old Jewish mother joke in which the woman complains to her husband about "your son," to which the husband responds, "Last week, when he got 100% on his math exam, he was YOUR son."

Yes, but for which team did he throw a no-hitter?

Had to be a Red sox fan who made the first comment. GET OVER IT

Um, I am a Sox fan, but it had nothing to do with my comment...I don't think...
