Does It Really Matter if It Is a Launching Pad?
Though we put this story to rest days ago, it just will not go away. Whether Yankee Stadium is a launching pad is the new official slow news day topic. Here's the thing, it doesn't matter. If it is, it is for any team who plays there, it's not an advantage. Also, when you have A-Rod, Teixeira, Matsui, Posada, and Cano all in your line up, you should hardly care whether you can put one over the fence in right. Besides, I suspect most of the home runs hit were a function of my jedi powers, not some sort of "jet stream," I think we would've noticed a river of jets flying out to right field. Stupid media.
