It's over.

That's it. No point playing the rest of the season -- this team sucks. They just don't have the fire.

Seriously though, I'm getting sick of these Opening Day losses. That's five in a row now!

Two gems from the NY press today:

1) Terry Francona, upon noticing there was new carpeting in the visitors' clubhouse at Yankee Stadium: "I guess our Champagne messed up last year's carpet."

2) All the sour grapes from Yankees fans. Can you believe some fan actually said this:
"Hate or love them, the Yankees are all about professionalism. We're champions, win or lose, because we play the game of baseball with class."

Did he even WATCH Game 6 of the ALCS? Not to mention two of the Yanks' Starting Nine are admitted steroid users. Man, it's sad. They can no longer brag about their team camaraderie, or their strong farm system, or their loyalty to veterans, so they're reduced to make up stories about "professionalism". Sad.

  1. Agreed. We ought to just throw in the towel. Seriously, how many games until we fire Francona? I mean can you say, "Grady Little"? He left Wells in there for way to long. The fact that we have an embeded Yankee makes this year a waste. Throw in the towel!

    By the way, in the last 20 years we are 9-11 in season openers. That is LESS than .500! We suck.
