Seattle pulls a Buckner

Worst call in history. Worst. Call. Ever.Neville Chamberlain... George Custer... that Italian cruise ship captain who steered too close to shore... Pete Carroll.You half-expected to see Tom "Coach for Life" Coughlin on the sidelines, angling his reddening cheeks toward the heavens and begging for a bullet. That call was 2,000 years of rectal itch parasites, or the entire history...

Dear Mr. Cashman: The last time the Yankees over-reacted to a Boston move, the result was Kei Igawa

Dear Madam or Sir,Little known fact: As a teen, I was bitten by a genetically altered clone of Matt Nokes, which gave me powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal man. My secret super power? On occasion, I can somehow channel the entire disassembled zeitgeist of the Yankiverse, and present it into one crisp, cohesive, primal bleat. Today is one of those moments.I am about to...

I Want To See His Teeth !

Okay, I'm back. Kicked by a wild horse in a rodeo while recruiting rancheros and cabbelleros ( who can spell in a language they don't speak?) for my South Mexican dirt field league team, I suffered a temporary setback.  Broken this and that.  Fractures here and there.It was also necessary that I disappear in the hills for a while, due to some ( rumored ) illegal trafficking of...

How could we have so tough in dealing with Robbie, and then cave in so pathetically with Beltran?

Last night, the signing of Carlos Beltran - three years, age 37, cranky knees, our sixth OF - conjured instant memories of the last time a Steinbrenner hustled out to grab a headline, after another team picked our pockets.
