NEW BERN, N.C. — Former New York Yankees pitching prospect Brien Taylor has been sentenced to 38 months in prison after pleading guilty in August to distributing crack cocaine.Taylor was the No. 1 overall selection in the 1991 draft and got a then-record $1.55 million signing bonus, but he never threw a pitch in the major leagues.
Fucking A Man. Do you know how many packs of Alexander the Grapes, Cherry Chans and Lemonheads I skipped out on to load up on Brien Taylor rookie cards? What a bad investment. Now I’m going to need a serious up tick in Becketts for my Gregg Jeffries rookie cards or I’m afraid my entire childhood baseball card venture could go right down the drain. Ricky Jordan’s not walking through that door.
Come on Gregg! I’m counting on ya!
