We Play Today, We Lose Today, Dassit.
Is there someone out there who can explain this new math to me? I’m having a very hard time understanding how 29,893,567 is better than 205,938,439, three times out of four.
As of this moment, I am convinced that this team had the life sucked out of them in the 2004 ALCS and until they receive a spark to reanimate them, we’re not going to see anything different from what we’ve been seeing this year.
From 1989 to 1992, the Yankees averaged 90 losses per season. Since that time, they’ve never lost more than 74 in a given year.
Their magic number is now 57. If the Yankees lose 57 more games, that would give them an all-time high loss mark since 1992. In order to not lose 57 more games, they must win 4 out of every 7, from now until the end of the year. It’s possible. But, first, we need that spark.
Quick, everyone start cutting out pictures from old Yankee yearbooks, put on a rally cap, and sing with me……..
From my heart and from my hand
Why don’t people understand
My intentions . . . . Oooh, weird . . . .
Magic and technology
Voodoo dolls and chants
Electricity We’re makin’
Fantasy and microchips
Shooting from the hip
Pictures from a magazine
Diagrams and charts
Mending broken hearts (and makin’)
(Weird science) Something like a recipe
Bits and pieces . . . . Bits and pieces . . . .
