As we enter the 2009 season with the signing of Damaso Marte and the emergence of Phil Coke, the Yanks enjoy surplus of left handed relief pitchers for the first time in a very, very long time.
How long? Check out this list, the last lefty we had coming out of the bullpen who actually got lefty hitters out on a regular basis was Mike Stanton in 2002.
Mike Stanton, Randy Choate, Sterling Hitchcock, Chris Hammond, Felix Heredia,
Gabe White, Jesse Orosco, Alex Graman, CJ Nitkowski, Donovan Osborne,
Al Leiter, Buddy Groom, Alan Embree, Mike Stanton-part deux, Wayne Franklin,
Sean Henn, Ron Villone, Mike Myers, Matt Smith, Kei Igawa, Billy Traber
Amazing. Felix Horrendous was my favorite. When it was late in a game and you needed two walks and a hit batsman, he was your go-to guy.
