Well, if you’re going to allow yourself to get rolled over like a cadaver at a proctology college, it’s always best to get it over with as quickly as possible. So, kudos to the Yankees for getting this one over with in two hours and fourteen minutes.
Words I thought I never would be saying: New York wasted another good effort from Sidney Ponson.
The Yankees have now lost 11 of their last 16. Amazing.
Here’s a closing note: What’s the difference between the Twins universe and the Yankees universe these days? Today, in the world of the Twins, it was announced that Joe Nathan donated a half-million dollars to Stony Brook University to build a baseball field. And, today, in the world of the Yankees, the off-the-field news is that A-Rod is giving Madonna a half-million bucks for her Raising Malawi charity.
Hey, nothing wrong with Alex helping Africa’s orphans gain access to food, education and medical care. In fact, it’s noble. But, because of the Madonna connection, it opens up the Yankees for more ridicule…when their “play” on the field should be enough fodder for the anti-Yankees fans out there today.
But, hey, I suppose that’s what this Yankees season is all about: Making it tough for a Yankee fan to walk the streets with their head held high, right?
