Chris Britton - all aboard the Scranton Shuttle

Back in the late 80s when the Yankees sucked (next on Yankeeograhpy, the Greg Cadaret story) - and even in the mid 80s when Mattingly, Winfield & Henderson would carry them through August before their pitching died - there was a penomenon known as The Columbus Shuttle, whereby one young player, usually a pitcher, would end up making multiple trips from the AAA Columbus Clippers & the Yankees & back again.

Sadly, the Clippers are no longer NY's AAA affiliate. The new team is in Scranton. But fear not! Fredo Steinbrenner has revived one of King George's old traditions in the person of Chris Britton, winner of the 2006 "Terry Forster Fat Tub of Goo" Award.

As of May 9, he has already been called up 3 times from Scranton. Here's wishing him luck in breaking the record which is 8 and if memory serves me right, is held by Steve Balboni & Ray Fontenot.
