I can’t seem to get the name Lyle Mouton out of my head !!
I think of him every time the Yankees trade for or trade away a big name pitcher.
Lyle, of course, was the key to the famed 1995 Jack McDowell deal with the ChiSox.
He just has a real smooth name. Try saying it with a French accent.
He was a favorite whipping boy of the Japanese (1998) before being booed back to America.
Fittingly, he also has a brother named James Mouton.
