Yankees Suck

STEVE SILVER, if we recall rightly, is a fan of the Minnesota Twins baseball franchise. As the movie put it, we have to think this is like getting hit in the head with a crowbar every week. That said, though, we would point readers to Mr Silver's commentary on the New York Yankees:

Nearly blowing their huge lead over Boston, losing 22-0 at home to Cleveland, and Kevin Brown punching a wall were bad enough. But to demand a forfeit from the Tampa Bay Devil Rays -- who were prevented from traveling by a hurricane, has to be a new low for the 2004 Yankees.

Steve? Give it time. They might just top all that -- provided, of course, they actually make the playoffs.

I'm a Tigers fan. But not impartial. I go to 10 or so Yankees games a year, and they treat their fans better than any team in baseball. The Devil Rays purposely missed flights to try to get out of the double header, and left 65,000 paying people in the lurch. What did "Satan" do? Gave them $3 million worth of free food and snacks to cover up another team's mistake. The Devil Rays should pay that back. GO YANKEES.
