Pretty Sure I Cursed the Yankees

For those who don’t know – probably roughly 95% of you – I have a bit of a curse when it comes to sports.  The team I’m rooting for never really wins the big game.  We won’t even mention what happens if I put money on a team.  It’s for these reasons that I knew posting that anti-Red Sox rant yesterday would somehow propel them into a hot streak and the Yankees, Rangers, and Rays into a freefall.  Well, day one of the post-rant era got off to a predictable start.  A day after getting pounded 20-11, the Red Sox came back and destroyed the Yankees 14-1.  Fortunately, the Rays and Rangers played each other, so they both couldn’t lose, although they tried.  Both teams repeatedly squandered leads, and they ultimately went to the 10th inning before the game was decided by a Carlos Pena RBI walkoff single.

    I don’t know that you’ve cursed the Yankees . As they’re playing great baseball at present. I’m pretty sure that they’ll end up winning the AL East . But it’s really the postseason that matters and the play of A-Rod , Swisher , Sabathia , Teixiera and Burnett in particular , that’ll really matter. In particular for A-Rod . As it’s no use putting up gaudy numbers in the regular season. And then come the postseason he’s about as visible as the Invisible Man when it comes to his numbers. You just don’t see anything from the guy at all. You just continue to hear the usual perfunctory excuses. Much like the same ol’ crap that comes out of the mouth of Dale Earnhnardt Jr.
