Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be right-handed. That’s how that song goes right? The latest proof of that “adage” is the contract Mike Dunn signed with Colorado for at least three years and $19-million.
Yankee fans, do you remember Dunn? Big lefty, limited control and a guy traded to the Braves for Javier Vazquez.
Ironically, the other guy the Yankees got in that trade was Boone Logan, another lefty like Dunn, who got almost the same contract three years ago when he left the Yankees, and is currently a free agent reportedly seeking at least $8-million a year.
Perhaps it is time to sign Betances to an extension?
