Staring Into the Chasm of the Offseason: Yanks-Sox Gamer II

Fenway crowd generated a Derek Jeter chant last night with him sitting in the dugout. That’s the only meaning left in these games: watching the fans of the Yankees’ most bitter rival cheer on a Yankee legend. Surreal, will enjoy seeing the reception he gets in his first AB (he mentioned Thursday that he’d play some this weekend, just not at SS). Mostly I’m just going to miss baseball that matters to me.

But we still have a couple more shots left at the bottom of the bottle before we proceed to the hangover stage. So Tanaka and Kelly for the penultimate matchup. It’s so hard to believe every year that we’ve made it through over 160 games.

  • Guess Tanaka forgot to have some Wheaties this morning.

  • There’s no doubt that I have felt less compelled by baseball this season than at any time in my life. Much of it has to do with this endless parade of retiring ballplayers and the morbid honorifics that get plastered to every visit to every stadium around the country.

    Thanks, Mo, Jeets, (Andy, Jorge as well..) I’m sorry you had to go through that. I’m more sorry for everyone that had to watch it week in week out, for two years. Enough already.
