Just three months ago...

I posted that the Yanks could be soon facing their own 93 loss seasons.  I took some liberties in that post. Suggesting regression for many and maybe some injuries. But so far, it's been even more pronounced than I ever expected.

Rivera struggles
Granderson out
Rivers shaky
Texeira hurt
Jeter hurting
Arod missing at least the first half

We have danced on their graves before. And we've celebrated their injuries too (Aaron Boone blowing out his knee in 2004). But maybe, just maybe.....

Okay, I failed. And I wasn't even as ambitious as Jose Canseco

So in my last post, I put in the comments that I might compare/contrast the 2003/2004 Sox versus the 2013 (potential) Sox and see if there is any chance of the current version becoming the juggernaut of a decade ago.  I failed.  I didn't do it. Didn't really get past thinking about how I would do it.  Using my gut, you know, Joe Morgan style or using some of these new crazy statistics that Billy Beane made up in his book.

But, I did say I might.  I didn't promise. I got busy.  Houston, by sucking, force me to watch the Pats when I hadn't planned on watching a meaningless game.  But at least I didn't fail like Jose Canseco is going to fail in achieving his New Year's resolutions:
