That guy has gotten off to a decent start as a member of the Yankees. Of course, who could remember his days with the A's 'Dark years', when he boasted a career-high 9 wins in the 97' season. His 9 wins were the most by any A's pitcher that year. Ariel Pieto was second with 6 and and next was 4 by Dave Telgheder, Mike Oquist and Dane (not Dan) Johnson.
Looking at this lineup, that same '97 team would have been decent in the later years (but not now). They had Canseco, McGwire, Berroa, Tejada, Giambi and Bellhorn. But how are you going to win with Don Wengert?
I'll never forget the 'Dark years' - certainly got some perspective during that time.
