• Yanks Have Become Annie Sez

    In 1996, Yankees second baseman Mariano Duncan came up with the game mantra of:

    “We play today, we win today. Dat’s it.”

    And, the Yankees kept attitute for the next few years. What do we hear from the Yankees today? Via Joe Girardi, in his post-game press conference last night:

    “You have another game tomorrow.”

    And, you’ve heard this line from other Yankees – such as Johnny Damon, Alex Rodriguez, and Derek Jeter – quite a bit lately. Heck they might as well be singing…

    The sun’ll come out
    Tomorrow
    Bet your bottom dollar
    That tomorrow
    There’ll be sun!

    Just thinkin’ about
    Tomorrow
    Clears away the cobwebs,
    And the sorrow
    ‘Til there’s none!

    When I’m stuck a day
    That’s gray,
    And lonely,
    I just stick out my chin
    And Grin,
    And Say,
    Oh!

    The sun’ll come out
    Tomorrow
    So ya gotta hang on
    ‘Til tomorrow
    Come what may
    Tomorrow! Tomorrow!
    I love ya Tomorrow!
    You’re always
    A day
    Away!

    This is what this Yankees team has become – it’s no longer a take care of business today type of team…and, now, it’s all about ‘Well, we still have tomorrow.’

    Well, guess what fellas? There’s not a whole lot of tomorrows left for this season. So, stop insulting the intelligence of your fans with this “You have another game tomorrow” nonsense. It’s way too late for that now.

      Don’t know what you expect from them. Athletes in general aren’t going to say anything of substance, especially in the length of a soundbite.

      The Yankees have always been a “corporate” organization, it should be of no surprise when their players act as such.

      The Yankees have become a women’s discount clothing store…?

      Well, they do play like they should be wearing a dress…at least they have the last two days…

      I thought “Annie sez” was a reference to Bull Durham.
