» December 6, 2002: In a sinister move, the Yankees offer the same two-year $4.6 million contract to three lefty relievers -- Mike Stanton, Mark Guthrie and Chris Hammond -- and give each 15 minutes to decide. Hammond, 37, signs for $4.8. Hammond, out of baseball for two years, had a remarkable season, posting a .095 ERA in 63 games and did not allow an earned run after June 28. He is the 3rd pitcher since 1900 to post a sub–one ERA while pitching 70+ innings. The veteran Stanton doesn't bother to respond to the step–child treatment and, preferring to remain in the New York area, will sign a 3-year contract with the Mets in a week.
