Two interesting articles in the Daily News I thought worth mentioning. The first points out that Johnny Damon is still playing with an injured left shoulder. I had completely forgotten about that and it certainly makes the way Damon has been playing that much more impressive.
The second is an open letter to George Steinbrenner by columnist Bill Maddon detailing everything wrong with the New Yankee Stadium. In a nut shell: COO Lonn Trost, who knows nothing about baseball or stadium designs, basically built a place for his rich friends to come and hang out while actual fans (you and me) get priced out. It's pretty scathing, but it's true. This stadium was definitely not designed for people who have to wait a paycheck or two before paying the next round of bills. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful stadium. I just wish I could afford to enjoy it a little more.
