Yankee woes
As a Yankee fan, this has been a very long start to the season. My team is lucky to be where it is right now at 8-11. The team could just as easily be mired with a record to rival the Detroit Tigers' ineptitude from last season. ESPNs Bob Klapsich has a column about the team being in crisis survival mode right now. Steinbrenner has supposedly washed his hands of trying to fix the team, putting it all on Torre and Cashman. I suppose I should be thankful if that legitimately means he won't be meddling in the team's affairs, and they can try to play this out.
