ON THE ROAD AGAIN

The Yankees begin a two week road trip tonight in Kansas City with Joe Gerardi at the helm. Joe Torre will be serving a one game suspension because of Paul Quantrill retailiating the beaning of Alex Rodriguez against the Tigers last week. Quantrill will receive a three game ban, so we won't have to worry about him for three days. Maybe the rest will do him good.
The Bombers came off a 15-2 stand in which the only team with a record over .500 whom the they beat on that stretch was the Mets. Against the two AL East teams they're battling with for the division the Yanks are 5-10 this season (4-5 vs. the Red Sox, 1-5 vs. the Orioles). Tonight in KC the Royals have settled on a new manager in the form of the golden haired (well maybe grey now) Buddy Bell. Let's hope the momentum doesn't swing in the Royals direction with a new skipper and Kevin Brown on the mound. Bell played a significant part in Yankee history. He made Graig Nettles expendable in 1973 allowing the Indians to send him to the Bronx. TRIVIA: Who did the Yankees send to Cleveland for Nettles and catcher Jerry Moses? Answer tomorrow.
