An off day for the Red Sox leaves time for quiet contemplation …
OK, let me get this straight. Steinbrennah anoints his son-in-law as his successor and the dude's name just happens to be "Swindal"?
Is that flippin sweet or what? You can't make shit like this up.
How appropriate considering the Yankees are the Great Major League Baseball Swindle.
What is it Johnny Rotten used to say, "Ever get the feeling that you've been cheated"? That's what Yankees fans must be thinking these days.
The highest payroll in baseball and they're fielding Tony Womack and Rey Sanchez? Talk about getting punked.
The Yankees are like the fucking freaky kid in that DH Lawrence short story … "There must be more money! There must be more money!"
Yeah, somewhere in the bowels of "Teh Stadium" a frail and dying Brian Cashman is in his pajamas riding the piss out of a magic rocking horse and yelling "Malabah, Malabah! Must sign Malabah!"
"Am I lucky, George? Am I lucky?"
Sorry for going all high school English class on your asses, but the Lawrence short story "The Rocking Horse Winner" is so perfect when applied to the Yankees. Read the whole story and see what I mean. (It's short.)
Check out this line, for instance: " Although they lived in style, they felt always an anxiety in the house. There was never enough money." Does that describe the situation in New York or what?
