I’ve decided I’m going to stop thinking about the Yankees’ questionable starting rotation. Things could be worse. Much worse. We could be the Dodgers, whose owners are suing each other, or the Mets, whose owners are being sued. A potential buyer who wants to talk to the Wilpons has already emerged, as reported in today’s New York Times. But who knows if a guy who owns Pirate’s Booty will end up with a 25% stake in the team. Not that I have anything against Pirates Booty. They sell it at my local Trader Joe’s and it’s good stuff.
Actually, shouldn’t the owner of a snack food called Pirate’s Booty buy the Pirates instead? Just asking.
When I look back at the crazy days in Yankeeville, when Steinbrenner was committing all sorts of crookedness and the Tampa contingent didn’t get along with the New York contingent and it seemed as if the organization might implode, it amazes me how stable things have become. Sure, Cashman didn’t agree with Hal/Hank about Rafael Soriano. Big deal. There’s been an orderly transition of power since George left the scene, and we don’t have to worry about the business side of our team. That’s a comfort. Of course, I hope I didn’t just jinx us. For all I know, that Greenberg guy from the Rangers took exception to being called “delusional” by Randy Levine and now Levine is in Witness Protection.
