Yankees on the brink
Yes, I know, I run the Red Sox blog. But I’m in Detroit covering Yankees-Tigers. So it’s worth a blog entry that the mighty, mighty Yankees are facing elimination today.
I’d like to see the Yankees win, mainly because it will make my travel arrangements easier. how’s that for honesty? It’s not easy to get a flight to San Francisco/Oakland on one day’s notice.
Seriously, I’ve made it clear in this blog all year that I’m very much a Johnny Damon backer. So i’d like to see Johnny play a few more big games this October.
The more i watch postseason baseball, the more i discover that it’s just pure luck. How could anyone know that Kenny Rogers was going to pitch the second best game of his career last night? (Don’t forget his perfect game in 1994). You just can’t predict this stuff, so why try?
What if Dave Roberts is thrown out at second in ’04? the Red Sox are swept that year. Is Billy Beane suddenly a genius now because the A’s finally won a first round series?
So just sit back and enjoy October. Don’t try to guess what will happen. Just watch it all unfold and know that the baseball Gods have alread pre-determined a lot of it.
