Last night, something went Wangy in the universal time and space Yankee matrix.Behold: No, that was not a YES Classic maiden voyage of Colter Bean. It was the comeback by Chien-Ming Wang - the Yankee cloaked in Blue Jays garb - which went blooey in the shadows of Boston Strong testosterone.

Means.But I've dashed off, higgetty piggetty, some thoughts:a.) I was rooting for Wang. I think all Yankee fans were, especially when pitching against Boston. Wang was a great homegrown pitcher, and we all felt pain watching him lift Toronto from the depths of hell.b) He can't have many more starts like this. Nothing deflates a team like a two-inning blowout in game one of a big series. We certainly know. Personally, I still fear Toronto more than Boston. Jose Reyes might ignite the Jays the way Alex Rodriguez or even De...
