Yankees first baseman/DH Richie Sexson, who was a teammate of Washburn's in Seattle until earlier this month, thinks he would work out wonderfully in pinstripes. Said Sexson: "He'd be a great fit, especially in this city. I mean, he's a winner. He can take the ball anytime. He's a big-time competitor."
"In the three years I played with him, we never scored any runs for him," Sexson said. "He should have a lot more wins."
You're doing God's work, Richie. Don't be deterred by the skeptics. You know what your team needs, and what your team needs is a big fuzzy helping of Jarrod Washburn: The Winner That Doesn't Win.
