I’m not giving up yet, but the Yankee doodlers are less than dandy..

A few posts ago, after a 9-games Yankee winning streak, I crowed that that Red Sox nation better be watching their back because the Yankees were on the march.  I was certain that the addition of Clemens would add more fuel to the fire and that the Yankee surge was inevitable.  Apparently I should have kept my mouth shut.   A trip to Colorado where the Yankees scored 41 runs in three games last year produced 5 runs and three losses.  Post-Denver, Yankee play has been as inspired as a dry omelet.

Clemens is pitching his age.  Abreu’s power continues to dwindle.  Mike Mussina should change the first vowel in his last name to ‘e’.   Johnny Damon is a shadow of his former Red-Sox-self.   I’m not giving up. I’m not saying uncle.   I’m just saying that maybe just maybe a team that plays Cairo at first base might not be a team that is going to catch Boston this year.

There’s always the wild card….sigh.

  1. This hubris thing is very unbecoming for a Chokees fan. You should do more of that “here we come Red Sawx fans!” thingee. That was more like it.

    Who’da thunk that letting Damon sign with the evil empire would be a good move? What position is he playin’ now, bat boy?

    Heh.
