Good Luck to Tony! He always seemed like one of the nicest guys in the game!

Yeah, he did seem like a nice guy, always seemed so friendly, he should probably be an everyday player out there. Good Luck!

Hope he does well and hits a least one bomb (hopefully not a game winning shot) at the stadium. only if his shot in game 5 had stayed fair. what could have been :-ponder-:

Good luck to TC. He had his moments as a Yankee, and was always a class act. :) :cool:

As the blowhards on PTI say:

What was your favorite moment of the Tony Clark era?

Mine has to be the first Tony Clark moment, the 492 foot home run with those tiny balls in Japan.

Tony's cool. Even after he went Soriano with the strikeouts and sent a double about a foot to high in the ALCS.

Here's to the Tiger :gulp:

I'd recommended Tony Clark to a few Mets fans I knew. We were discussing guys who'd play and they had Travis Lee and Olerud in consideration, in case Delgado didn't work out. Someone said Tony was garbage.

Perhaps he didn't watch Tony play in 2004.

I've never heard any player, coach, or team executive speak in anything less than glowing terms about Tony's attitude and character.
I wish him well, and would love to see the Yankees hire him in some capacity, after his playing days are over. He brought alot of class to the organization.

Just remember it the ball didn't bounce into the stands, he would've been a hero.

Good Luck Tony.

I wish he wouldve been able to stay with us. Tino and Tony would have made a great 1st base combo

Good luck, Tony. I'll miss his classy and well spoken interviews on YES when he had a game where he did something special! If he weren't still playing, I'd say he should take over the Girardi spot on YES.

Best of luck to Tony Clark. He was 4 ft away from hitting a series ending HR in the 8th inning of game 5 this year. I remember sitting with my roommate and I called a Clark HR because he was due and like always with the Red Sox/Yanks it's the last person you think wil be the one to kill them. I was sooooo excited when he hit it and if it was only 4 ft deeper or 4ft to the right it woulda been gone. <sigh>

But I digress...Enjoy the nice Phoenix weather Tony.

I'm glad Tony Clark caught on with someone and wish him well. He's a class act and got some big hits for us last year. If we need a threat off the bench, or a platooning first baseman, or a coach (as ring403 alluded to) down the road I'd be thrilled to see him back in pinstripes.

He'll be a good asset for them...not a regular, but certainly a calm, leading, steadying presence. That will help a lot of young guys. I'm sorry to see him go, but I'm glad he was the "bench coach du jour" on the season's last day. Definitely a future coach, manager, or player development person.

Good luck Tony with the AZ D-Backs.

Decent hitter, solid fielder, but a nice, classy guy.

Come back to us if you have any urge to be behind the desk! The man could read a phone book and I'd find it interesting.

Good luck. :)

He was without a doubt one of the more classier players with NY last year and here's hoping that when his playing days are over that the Yanks will find a place for him either in the front office or on the field. :) :)

I was at the game in Shea Stadium on July 3rd when he was pretty much the whole team (2 HR, ground rule double) in a loss against the Mets and he made me a fan that day... I wish we could have seen some magic in October. Good luck Tony.

Bye Tony and good luck over there in Arizona!
