After the Red Sox won the Serious in 2004 our man Cliff almost wore his fingers to the bone typing about how the Yanks needed to sign Carlos Beltran. Instead, they went out and got Tony Womack, Jared Wright and Carl Pavano and insisted that there wasn’t enough leftover to pay for Beltran, who reportedly offered to sign for less than he eventually accepted from the Mets.
The Yanks blew it, Cliff wrote all winter and we agreed.
Now, the Yanks have interest in Beltran who is still a useful player.
Let me say on Cliff’s behalf, though not in his words: Too late fuck-o’s.
