The Crystal Ball is correct once again. I know I'll get killed when it fails, but I'm having a little fun with it right now.
I wish the Yanks had been bombed because a loss like this stings, but anyone would have been happy going 3-1 against the Tigers on the road with this rag-tag bunch. I was worried after Long popped up with the bases loaded and one out in the seventh-which left run number seven stranded, but then I knew the Yanks were toast when I heard Mariano tweaked his back.
What I'm seeing now is a gutsy Yankee team that is pulling togther like they haven't before in a long time since this outburst of injuries and hopefully George will realize the Yanks don't need an all star at every position to win.
