Jeter didn't play tonight, making the Yankees lineup look uncomfortably similar to those of the early '90s. Still, it appeared for a short time that the Yankees still might win, Escobar was a bit wild, and they jumped on top early, 1-0.

But Moose wasn't great tonight, and Jason Anderson and Juan "The Gasman" Acevedo were predictably mediocre. Worse, the Yankees got themselves out several times, failing to take advantage of Escobar's wildness. Now the Yankees are no longer in first place, and if they don't get their heads out of their asses soon, they'll wake up next weekend to find themselves in third.

Wells vs. Lidle tomorrow. I'm predicting another defeat. I'm going to go further than that. I'm predicting that the Yankees are going to go into a tailspin, that they're going to miss the playoffs. That Torre will be let go at season's end. That George will go nuclear, signing Guerrero and any other free agent that suits his fancy, all to no avail. That we are entering the beginning of a new dark age in The Bronx. That for the next decade the Yankees will be always competitive, never great, never reaching that pinnacle again for many years. The final curtain will fall on the great modern dynasty.

Or, you know, maybe they'll win tomorrow.
