Bubba Confusion

The It is high... Yankees blog published a post that hopelessly confuses Bubba Crosby and Bubba Trammell. They did eventually admit they meant Bubba Crosby, not Bubba Trammell. Except they left in the part about him quitting the Yankees due to clinical depression. Which was Trammell, not Crosby. Oy. I guess it's not as bad as a rumor you've been impersonating Carl Pavano to make time with a porn star, but jeez.

They are now running a poll asking "Who is the greatest Yankee Bubba of all time?"

Sigh. Bubba Crosby's name lives on among Yankee a shorthand for saying "Cashman's lying when he says he's using the players he has." Not exactly how I wanted him to be remembered.

: Bubba Crosby won the poll.

Is Bill Clinton the greatest Dixie Bubba, then?

Gardner's the new Bubba.

Hmmm. Now that you mention it, "Yankee Bubba" is kind of a contradition in terms, isn't it?

One amusing thing about Sarasota: it's southern enough that any man whose name you don't know can be addressed as "Bubba."
