The Yankees designated journeyman pitcher Aaron Small for assignment just prior to Saturday's game. "This is the hardest demotion I've ever had to face," said Small, who had an improbable, storybook, 10-0 season in 2005. But Small's chariot has unsentimentally turned back into a pumpkin this year. By all accounts, Small is a swell, likable guy. Here's wishing him success no matter where he winds up. The bottom line is, no matter what happens from here, nobody can take away what Small did last season. Yankee fans will always appreciate him for his efforts.
