Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

Three Years Ago Today...

Three years ago today was "The Bubba Crosby Game." The pinnacle of Bubba's career, if he stays retired.

Just like three years ago, the Yankees are hosting Balitmore tonight. But the situation could not be more different. Rather than the post-season hanging on every game, the Yankees are just playing out the string. How very strange, to have nothing to play for in September.

Yup. It sucks.

It's interesting reading the article you linked back to. I'd forgotten Melky suplanted Bubba for awhile that year.

Imagine if the Yanks had kept Bubba instead of melky. I bet Bubba would be in CF still.

Yeah, that was the first Melky callup, where he misplayed that ball in Fenway horribly, and immediately crashed back down to AA.

I do wonder what might have been, if Bubba had been given the chance Melky got. Sigh.
