Well, crap. The more I say that I'm not worried about the Yankees, the more it sounds like I'm covering for my worrying about the Yankees. Still, I wouldn't be worried, the biggest problem this team has faced--lack of hitting--is one that's not going to keep up for much longer. There's just too much talent in that lineup.
The problem is, the Yankees are playing like a team that doesn't have much to worry about. They know how much talent they have, so they don't feel any sense of urgency in trying to win. Yeah, there have been plenty of excuses for why they've played poorly--the trip to Japan, the four out of five days off this past week--but great teams don't lose when they have an excuse to lose, or at least not very often. That's what makes them great teams.
There wasn't really very much to like about last night's game, and it was exacerbated by the fat idiot with the ugly shirt behind home plate and his fat idiot friend (High Five!), not to mention "Scooter", which was apparently designed to scare children off of baseball until they're 15, at least.
I'd say more, but I don't really want to reflect on it anymore, and I've got to leave for work now, too. Moose vs. Gehrig38 this afternoon. --posted at 9:34 AM by Larry Mahnken / |
