We stopped for dinner out, on the way home, after the Patriots’ game. The place we chose had both the Yankees game and ESPN News on flat screen TVs. It was there that I got to see the final few innings of the Yankees game – along with the ESPN News’ highlights of that 9th inning today up at Fenway.
Man, it was a good thing we had a great day at the ballpark in Somerset…because the residual happy vibe from that helped offset what I saw on the big TV screens while eating dinner.
You know, at the end of April, I said that the Yankees needed to use the first 13 games on May to make a statement…via a “break” in their schedule. What did they do? New York went 8-5 in those games. That’s not very impressive. At this rate, it would not shock me to see the Yankees be 15 games out of first place by June 4th – because the Yanks are letting games slip and Boston never loses.
And, now, with Clemens on board, you cannot even fire Torre to try and shake up the team…since Clemens has reportedly said that Torre was a big reason why he decided to come back to New York. Or, can you?
The whole thing is a mess. Is it too early to start saying “Wait till next year”?
