The Silence is Deafening

Tonight we have the Red Sox vs. Yankees in New York. This is normally a big rivalry, but the shine is off it just a bit this week. My Boston Red Sox have the best record in baseball. They have combined good starting pitching and timely hitting with a bit of luck and appear to be running away with the A.L. East.

Toronto was done the minute B.J. Ryan went in for surgery.

Baltimore is Baltimore.

The Devil Rays are the Devil Rays.

That leaves us with the Yankees, ten and a half games out. Their "best line-up in baseball" (I said that) has gone silent. Their starting pitching staff is snake bit with bad luck, nagging injuries, lack of intestinal fortitude (Pavano) and age. Their bullpen is overused, mishandled and ineffective. Their closer looks toasted. Their manager is on the chopping block. Their G.M. should be arrested for fraud. Their fans, normally boastful and vocal, are SILENT.

Actually, its kind of nice.
