Surrender

I've been a Yankees fan since I was a kid.  It's tough being a Yankees fan in Boston.  It was really tough in 2004 when the Red Sox finally reversed the curse and won the World Series (and the Yankees collapsed).

The Yankees have had a great run since 1996.  But, their team is getting old.  Even so, they have horribly underperformed this year.  And, the Red Sox have been the best team in baseball.  My son is a huge Yankees fan, too.  We spend a lot of time in the summer watching games and tracking their progress.  But, this year I have already raised the white flag.  The Yankees don't have a chance of catching the Red Sox and probably will miss the playoffs for the first time in a long time. 

I'm still a fan and will follow the team online and in the newspaper.  But, I am getting off the emotional roller coaster now.  This will save me lots of time and anguish.  Discretion is the better part of valor, and now I can spend more time enjoying my summer.

No more baseball posts until next year!

jayfallon, sorry for the delay in posting your comment. Movable Type had put it into the Junk pile for some reason, and I didn't notice it until now. Thanks for commenting.

If you'd like, I can take over the baseball posts for you until...

The Yankees made some very good investments in position players that paid off handsomely over the past 11 years. That being said, the lack of consistency in coaching and pitching have hurt them considerably. It's time to turn the team over to Donny, slash the salaries and reinvest.

And yes, eriks, they've only played 50 games so far.

I'm a lifelong Red Sox fan.

I still remember 1978.

If we can blow a 10 game lead in late August, we can certainly blow a 13.5 game lead in late May.

That said, I enjoy watching the Yankees circle the drain.
