I Love The Smell Of Abuse In The Morning    

It smells like... defeat! Ahhhhhhh.

Hey, Lehr! Remember this post? I bet you don't. But I do. And now, the day is mine!!! Let the music play!

So, Alex, I just have a few questions. What do you have to say now that the Yankees have been eliminated from the playoffs?

Ohhhhh! That's too bad! Someday you guys will know what it's like to taste victory. Hey, maybe you'll even know what it's like to earn it. Either way, you're in my prayers tonight.

What do you think about the news that Joe Torre might get fired for having the audacity to take home-field advantage in the AL despite having to rely on the likes of Jaret Wright and Cory Lidle?

Hmmm, I see. It may look like Torre's getting fired for not advancing, but I think it's retroactive dismissal for giving so many at-bats to Miguel Cairo. If I were Steinbrenner, I'd put Cairo on a suicide watch until this thing is resolved.

What about the outlook for 2007 and beyond?

I'm with you there. Not such a good-looking roster meow, is it???

In conclusion, apropos of nothing:

[Ed. note: this post makes no sense.]


  • Quick thoughts, to be expounded on in a later full post:

    1) Firing Torre is out and out ridiculous.

    2) Hiring Pinella is the only idea more ridiculous than firing Torre.

    3) doRA is gay, but trading him for 10 cents on the dollar is Gay.

    4) Jeet's a pimp.

    5) Old and busted: Keith Foulke
    New Hotness: Joel Zumaya

  • You remember all that crap I laid out about the Yankees being indestructible without a proper revenue-sharing plan or a salary cap? If Steinbrenner actually fires Joe Torre, he will undo my entire argument. It never occurred to me that Steinbrenner would ever fire Torre for real. I still have my doubts that he would really be that stupid. I'd put the breakdown of that Daily News report at 80% bullshit, 18% possible, 2% likely.
