Andy Juniper: New York Yankees 2013: The Unspeakable Tragedy
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
It's an unspeakable tragedy about which we must, well, speak. It's abomination -- shameful and unjust. It's the world failing to unfold as it has (unfailingly) for so many years.
With Major League Baseball's Opening Day only six sleeps away, the polls are in, predictions have been posted, the sport's sages and seers have spoken -- and you know these guys are never wrong -- and apparently the New York Yankees are, in the words of Ed Grimley, "as doomed as doomed can be."
Doomed. Before the season even starts. DOA. Before the first pitch is even thrown. Destined to be but a shadow of their iconic selves, and possibly even a laughing stock, finishing third, or fourth, or (gasp) possibly even dead-last in the tough American League East Division. Did I mention that this is an unspeakable tragedy? And lest anyone out there think I'm overstating, consider the innocents.
Indeed, if you have the stomach for it, consider that there are three-year-olds toddling around New York
