The Rockies are currently experiencing The Cabrera Factor, and they better get a handle on that right quick or it's going to be an awfully short series.
Hank Steinbrenner was recently quoted as saying the following: "They talk about Red Sox Nation. We talk about Yankee universe. As bad as they want it, they'll never be the Yankees with their brand."
John Henry replied (with humor): "As far as I'm concerned, they can have Mars and Pluto. We're going to settle for Red Sox Nation."
If this is any indication of the new Steinbrenners, we're going to be in for some awfully stupid times in Yankeedom. "Yeah? World Series? Red Sox 'Nation'? Well, well, how about this: Yankee Universe. Suck it!"
The way things have been going for us, we'll be lucky to have Oriole Charter Township still standing by 2011.
John Henry plugging his ears last night because the cheering was too loud was pretty amusing. Take your pointers out of your earholes and listen up, GRAM-PAW: If it's too loud, you're too old.
