"Ladies and gentlemen, we direct your attention to the Monument Park in center field..."Historically, the Yankees haven't always blessed retiring icons with pennant-quality supporting casts. Mickey limped away in 1968, with Horace Clarke, Steve Whitaker and Andy Kosco setting the table. Elston and Babe both went out in Boston. Most maddening was...

(Ah, the reason we blog: to vent.) Culver was selected number 32 - end of the first round - of the 2010 draft, outraging all those experts who consider themselves to be the Mel Kiper of baseball...
According to the great minds in Vegas, the chances of Cito Culver ever playing at the major league level are stuck at 450,000. - 1/2.
