NY Times: Quantrill and Stanton May Be Let Go Thursday
by SG

According to the linked NY Times Article,

BALTIMORE, June 29 - The veteran relievers Paul Quantrill and Mike Stanton appear to have pitched their last games for the Yankees. Hoping to make their bullpen younger, the Yankees could release or trade both on Thursday.

Quantrill and Stanton shook hands and exchanged hugs with teammates and club personnel after Wednesday night's rainout at Camden Yards. Quantrill would not comment after leaving the clubhouse, and Stanton said, "You can read between the lines."

Manager Joe Torre, who kept the clubhouse closed to reporters for about 15 minutes after the game was called, said he had spoken with General Manager Brian Cashman about reducing the Yankees' pitching staff to 11 from 12.

Obviously, these moves in and of themselves won't make the Yankees much better, but at the very least they may be pre-cursors to further roster shuffling. There are rumors of a Quantrill for Juan Encarnacion trade. Encarnacion is not a very good player, but he'd immediately become the Yankees best CF, and an offensive upgrade over Womack. Then again, who wouldn't? More on this developing story as it unfolds...
