Hotter Than July

Jeez, anybody know anything about Chris Bootcheck [1], the Angels’ starting [2] pitcher today? The youngster [3] is making his second career start and will face Randy Johnson on what promises to be a hot and hazy afternoon in the Bronx.

Hopefully, the Big Unit is still mad. We like him when he’s angry.

Go get ‘em boys.

The Yanks did not make any trades last night, but with the addition of Alan Embree [4], Buddy Groom [5] had some parting shots [6] for Joe Torre as he was dropped from the Major League team yesterday. Meanwhile, Randy Winn [7] went to the Giants, Jose Cruz Jr. [8] went to Boston and Manny isn’t going anywhere [9] (but the bench…for now).
