More Callups

Jose Veras was exchanged today for Kevin Thompson. Lots of pitchers, probably all three of Rivera, Proctor, and Farnsworth, are unavailable. If Wang doesn't go 9, we''ll probably see some combination of Veras, Smith, and Villone trying to close it out. If Wang doesn't go 7, we're in trouble.

It seems on the eve of my absense that I will run out of things to write about. Small is gone. The bullpen is stocked with young talent that has tremendous upside. Hell, Octavio Dotel isn't even back yet! The future looks bright for the Yankees.

At the very least, we're showcasing potential trade bate for an outfielder.
