Yanks valiant in defeat


Well the Yankees gave a great fight in going down in defeat to Seattle last night. The fact that they were in the game until the ninth given the hangover they were sure to be feeling after the five-game sweep of the Sox was encouraging. I am anticipating that both the Yankees and Red Sox will have difficult west coast swings after the grueling series and no days off before traveling across the country. My personal prediction is that by the end of next week the Angels and perhaps even the Jays will catch and surpass the Sox in the wild card standings. I would have started saying the Jays before the Angels but obviously the Angels can gain ground directly playing the Sox and then there is the fact that John Gibbons is a moron. The Jays were absolutely out of their minds to give B.J. Ryan and A.J. Burnett the kind of money they gave them in the offseason. You couple that with the fact that Gibbons is an idiot and, as long as minor league roommate Ricciardi is the GM he is not going anywhere, and the Jays are going to be a non-factor in this division for a long time. Between Gibbons challenging everyone to fights and another recent Jays manager in Tim Johnson making up Vietnam war stories one has to ask what is in the water in Toronto?

    I have a feeling doodoo will hit the fan in Toronto. Gibbons is a weenie. Glad to see exYankee smurfboy Ted Lilly stand his ground. Maybe he'll be back in pinstripes if his days are numbered in toronto.. we can always use another lefty.
