Let This Be a Lesson to You
For the past few weeks, almost nothing baseball related has been reported in the NY dailies. All the focus has been on the Giants, and if the Yankees hadn't mustered the sheer gall to throw a press conference to introduce Mark Teixeira, we'd still be reading about how Pettitte doesn't want to take a pay cut. Now the Giants are out of the playoffs and Philadelphia is preparing to crown a second world champion in a matter of months. You see what happens when you ignore the Yankees in print? Now there are no New York teams in the playoffs, and Philly, a city hardly worthy of the number of letters in its name, is going to be the world champion in football and baseball. Thanks a lot Daily News, Post, Times. Let this be a lesson to you: Never, NEVER, ignore the Yankees.
