The Coming Yankee Meltdown, Cont'd

To the consternation of Yankee fans everywhere, including a friend who has IM'd me every morning for the past two months to ask, "did the Yankees get Beltran yet?," the free agent centerfielder has opted to jump to the crosstown Mets.

Years from now, the Yankees' decision to go for Randy Johnson ahead of Carlos Beltran may be looked at as a watershed moment of their fall from grace. When the Big Unit has long retired Beltran will likely still be knocking in runs in Queens; at least if he'd signed with the Astros, the Yanks probably would've traded for him in 2 or 3 years.

As for the Unit, those of us wondering if he'd be able to handle the New York media after a lifetime of small-market play got a nice surprise today, when the future Hall of Famer got into a scuffle with a photographer, on the way back from his physical. An omen of things to come, perhaps?
