YANKEE GO HOME...:

Yankee Lefty Might Pitch to the Right (Washington Whispers, 8/01/05, US News)

Lefty pitcher Al Leiter is the toast of New York, now that he's left the Florida Marlins to help the Yankees in the pennant stretch. The Yanks think the 39-year-old with a winning record will help solidify a muddling rotation. But insiders say that's not the only reason he headed north. Republican tipsters say he's mulling a political bid in his adopted state or back home in New Jersey. GOP-ers say he has helped at recent Republican events and is up on current issues. He has even been featured as GOP "dude of the week" on the New Jersey Republican Party Web page. "Oh, he's one of us," says a Republican tipster: "A conservative."

...we need someone to win Corzine's seat.

That's nice. And if he pitches as well for the Yanks as he did for the Marlins Red Sox fans will like him as well.
