The Mystery Deepens As Yankees Lose More Than A Game
***STEPHEN KING RESEARCHING BOOK FOR SUMMER '07.....RELATED TO YANKEES' INJURY BUG?***
The Yankees lost the final of a 4 game set agaist Detroit as Kyle Farnsworth could not shut down the Tigers in the 9th inning, allowing 2 runs and earning, yes earning the loss. And the rash of injuries keeps spreading, as Mo Rivera was felled after pulling something in his back while trying to get into his cleats. It's painful...I've done it. Rest and rehab for a few days usually works, but the lingering doubts he has will remain longer. And the Sheffield news turned terrible. His wrist injury might require surgery. There is no timetable for his return.
NO TIMETABLE. Hmm. Sounds like the title of a good book. In stranger than fiction news, it very well might be. Stephen King, productive and beloved writer and lifelong Sox fan, has been doing research for a book to be released in summer '07 that has to do with an aging but once champonship big league ball team that has been overcome by injuries big and small, some believable and some just plain absurd. There is talk of an alien plot theme also involved in the string of injuries, and King has been seen doing research in and around Yankee Stadium. Sounds like the kind of book I'd read in a heartbeat, but I read everything he writes.
