I have despised the Yankees since I can remember. At first, my dad taught me, then I came to dislike them for all my own reasons. I will admit, there was a smidge of envy tied into my emotion. As much as I disliked the Yankees, I respected them. Today, however, how can any Yankee fan look at their team the same way? Mussina backs down from Pedro and Rocket backs down from grabbing a bat.
The Clemens thing may be the smart thing, the safe thing. It certainly isn’t the Possessed Rebel, eye black wearing, Ninja Turtle shoelace thing from the Clemens we knew in Boston. I wonder if Rocket will even show his face in Shea. It would be safer to stay in his hotel or even at home. There is a word to describe this kind of action, which I am prohibited from using in this forum.
The Mussina action is indefensible. It is contrary to the essence of sport: Gimme your best and I’ll give you mine and let’s see who is still standing. You would think teams would juggle their rotation to get their ace to pitch versus the chief rival, not the opposite. It could work out where Mendoza throws a 2 hitter and NY wins anyway, but that is not the point. The call him Moose. They should call him Mouse. I am sooooooooo glad Boston signed Manny.
