We’ve seen enough of Tucker Ashford, er, um, I mean, Kevin Brown. To be more clear, Mike Griffin has fooled us long enough. Damn, I did it again. I mean that Kevin Brown has fooled us long enough. Anywho, what can the Yankees do? It’s already at the point where they’re pulling up Double-A starters to fill out the rotation.
Am I the only one who saw a little Dion James in the batting stance of Robinson Cano tonight? I’m glad the kid got # 14. Moose Skowron had it. Sweet Lou Piniella too. And, then a bunch of rejects like Irabu and Enrique Wilson had it. It would be nice for # 14 to find a star to land on. Maybe Cano is it?
I have to confess that I turned the game off at 9 pm EST to watch House M.D. on FOX. It’s the best show on TV now, in my humble opinion.
Jason Giambi is now playing like a 38-year-old Rickey Henderson without the speed. Basically, his game is walks and nothing else. Could he be the first player ever to qualify for the batting title, hit under .210, slug under .400 and have an On Base Average over .400? Now, that would be something.
The most depressing thing about today’s Yankee news? It has to be the Randy Johnson situation. It’s kinda/sorta stupid to tick off your brand new ace like this, no?
These are the 2005 New York Yankees. Looking backwards. Looking foolish.
