There’s only one thing less interesting than a meaningless game against the Orioles, baseball’s least compelling team: a loss in a meaningless game against the Orioles, baseball’s least compelling team. The Yankees managed that unleasant feat last night, the sole bright spot being the extention of Derek Jeter’s hit streak, now at 18 games. This afternoon, facing Adam Loewen with Chien-Ming Wang, the Yanks will do their best to avoid repeating this ignominy. Our ideal scenario: watch Wang cruise thrugh the first couple of innings, see Derek pick up a few hits, and then head over to Coliseum Books, where Mark Lamster will be reading from Spalding’s World Tour, his critically acclaimed history of the national pastime. Reading kicks off at 6:00 pm. Youll find Coliseum at 11 West 42nd Street, right across from Bryant Park and the NYPL. Tell the author we sent you.
