So it's a little before 9AM on a lazy warm Sunday morning. Reality, weather wise, will sink in during the day Tuesday, when a strong cold front brings today and Monday's mid-eighties down to near normal territory. And for mid-September, here in Southern New England, 95 miles from the Promised Land that we call Fenway Park, normal high temps are in the mid 60s, and normal lows? 52 or so. Pleasent leaf changing color weather.
I just read an article from the Globe. The subject? The NY Yankees. What it says, and I will feed you a little blurb of it, may make you frown. But beneath those first-to-surface emotions will be a gentle agreement, that the writer is right. And we have to do everything we can to prevent the "eventual (maybe) outcome." Read on, and I'll be back
"As the adage says, championships are not won on paper. But the New York Yankees, far and away baseball's best team on paper, should be more than a paper tiger this October.
In fact, the Yankees should win their first World Series of the 21st century, and it might be accomplished as tidily as the Red Sox' 2004 sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals.
If the Yankees fail to make it to the World Series, feel free to call them everything from chokers to underachievers, because this team clearly should win it all."
Peter here. The article goes on to say that the Yankee team is getting stronger. Matsui came back as, Matsui! And that the on-paper juggernaught known as the Yankees is living up to the on-paper hype. Now, and this is me, the guy you love to read, at least most of the time, I say, Sunday September 17 2007, to all the other AL teams, this. It is your duty, to your teammates and fans, to beat the New York Yankees. Hey, they have weaknesses. The starting rotation might look good, but make RJ throw some pitches while being selective, and the same with Moose, wait out Wang and his sinkers, because most will sink low out of the strike zone. Hey, when those trademark sinkers DON'T SINK, while I stand and cheer, hit the sh*t out of it! And mid relief, until a recovering Mo Rivera will come into a playoff game, is a question mark, although we all know (yes, we do!) that he is the best in the business. My point? I have hundreds. But one at a time...here we go. The Yankees can be beaten while they are on their chosen path to the World Series. A team has to step up, be a "stop stick", the kind you see on America's Most Wanted, or on the road if you're a wanted person. I don't think many wanted people read me. I can only think of three. Keep their identity a secret! I'l let Julie know. Has this post been too long winded? Maybe, but the keys were typing and I was watching. HERE IS THE KEY SENTENCE, THE THOUGHT CLOSEST MY THE HEART. Phew..here we go....There is one AL team that will be in the right place at the right time in this soon to start post season of 2006 that will end the Yankees' dreams. And have an easy time doing it with offense and great pitching. On that day, I will stand and cheer, one with RSN. There. Hope you enjoyed this read. I have to go back now and see what I wrote. And correct incorrectness. I hope you enjoyed this Sunday jumble of thoughts. Oh, and about the two games today? Let's win the first game, so there is no clinch celebration on this 17th day of September. There. I'm finished. Thank's for reading. Now I have to do the Spanish translation version. And then the Yiddish. Bye..love ya all.
