I don’t even know what to say…we just gave the game away. At this point, you almost have to trade Benitez. Even if it means eating some of his contract. As long as we’re counting on him in the close games, you have to think that a one run lead is really a two run deficit. That’s not the way a championship team thinks.
I may have to get one of those Trade Benitez shirts.
At least we’ll finally get to see pitching phenom Aaron Heilman. I say finally as if I keep an eye on the farm, but I never have. Even when I read Baseball Weekly, I skip the minor league reports. I actually heard about Heilman from a Yankee fan.
Speaking (yet again) of Yankee fans, I’ve found a new hobby….YankeeFanBaiting! Next time you’re talking to a friend who is a Yankee fan, tell him or her “it’s all a conspiracy“. Note: This only works with actual baseball fans, you’ll have to find something else to do for the bandwagon jumpers on your Christmas card list.
