Card of the Day -- Does Everyone End Up a Yankee?

Do you all remember that Lee Smith was a Yankee?  In the thick of a pennant race in 1993 they acquired "Big Lee" from the Cardinals for Rich Batchelor. Smith appeared in 8 games for the Yankees in September/October, gave up no runs and saved three but a 3-16 record  left the team 7 games in back of the Blue  Jays who went 18-10 in the same period.  The Jays would go on to win the World Series on Joe Carter's walk off home run against Mitch Williams of the Phillies.
