All the talk in Yankee land has been about how Johnny Damon will no longer be a Yankee next year and whether or not that's a good thing. Somehow completely lost in the media shuffle is Chien-Ming Wang, how quickly Yankee land has forgotten it's former ace.
From his rookie year in 2005 to his injury in 2008, Wang amounted 54 wins to just 20 losses. He never posted a season ERA above 4.07 and his WHIP and BAA against were all average to better than average.
Unfortunately, Wang's comeback bid in 2009 can only be characterized as a complete and total disaster which has lead to the Yankees basically expressing no interest at all this offseason. As of right now Wang's best option just might be the Washington Nationals, weeee that sounds fun. What a precipitous fall for the one time Cy Young runner up and former ace of the New York Yankees.
