Frank Tanana Traded
The trade was made by the Yankees, in a last ditch effort to catch up to the division leading Blue Jays, acquiring Tanana from the Mets for Kenny Greer, who had cups of coffee with the Mets and Giants but otherwise flamed out. (This marked a change from earlier Yankee teams which would've made this deal in August and given up Derek Jeter.)
That 0-2 would be the last results of
Mussina will be thirty-seven next year, the last of his current Yankee contract (there's an unlikely to be picked up team option for 2007) and it will be interesting to see if he stays around long enough to reach victory number two forty-one, and take a bit of trivia away from Tanana.
