My Response To Michael Silverman Of The Boston Herald

Touchy, touchy, touchy.

Like a colicky baby who’s also battling diaper rash, the 2008 Yankees can’t seem to stop bawling.

Besides a good burp, they also need to grow up.

As if sitting in last place in the AL East were not bad enough, the Bronx Bombers discovered on Thursday that after years of planning for this summer’s All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium, they were the last to discover that a new “Call Your Shot” insurance-company promotion would feature the Red Sux David Ortiz mimicking Babe Ruth’s famous called-shot home run from the 1932 World Series.
The Yankees are only 5.5 games back. Remember last year when we were 14.5 back and the Red Sux almost blew their lead in the division??? I do.
It is almost June. The Yankees are an under-.500 club that has yet to show that its mix of veterans and youth can jell into a serious threat. Their feelings are hurt that a Red Sox known as one of the best sluggers in the game with one of the most winning personalities was chosen for an All-Star Game promotion?
Alex Rodriguez is a ten times better slugger AND player than David Ortiz. David Ortiz is a big floppy goofball.

How “sensitive” are things going to be come July, August and September if it turns out there will be no October for the Yankees?

No October for the Yankees? Don't count your chickens before they hatch buddy. I am going to remember this article come October.

It used to be the Red Sox who had the inferiority complex about the Yankees. Now the insecurities are leaking from the Yankees faster than a Woody Allen monologue. It cannot help that the Sox have won two World Series championships in the last four years while the Yankees have been shooting blanks since 2000.
Haha. Two World Series' in the last four years is good for the Red Sux. But increase the sample size by just a few more years and the Yankees have won four. And to go along with those four World Series Championships, the Yankees won the East division title in '96, '98, '99, '00, '01, '02, '03, '04, '05, and '06. Notice the missing '97, and '07....those were years the Yankees won the wild card. Oh. And if you want to get historical...26 World Series Championships for the Yankees, 7 for the Red Sux. Way to go Boston!!!
As the Yankees found out right afterward, in the 2003 World Series, winning is not a birthright for any organization. It takes a mixture of luck, foresight, savvy front-office moves and an organization willing to open its wallet.

The Yankees are certainly capable of all of the above.

Well he got that right.

Just because they can’t do it yet is no excuse to cry about anything.

The Yankees aren't crying. They just don't want a schlub like Big Floppy trying to impersonate the Great Babe Ruth.
