This must be the worst team ever!

I am filing Sweeny Murti's blog post for WFAN this morning in the 'I wish I had written that myself' category. After watching the Yankees stumble to an 0-2 start, Murti has predicted, tongue-in-cheek of course, a disaster of epic proportions in the Bronx.

Here are a few of my favorite snippets.

*The Yankees will go 0-68 in games started by CC Sabathia and Chien-Ming Wang. In fact, the team will not win a game all year, finishing 0-162.

*Mark Teixeira will set a major league record with just 1 hit in 564 at-bats.

*Joe Girardi will be fired after the team finishes April without a win. Interim managers Rob Thomson (May), Bernie Williams (June), Paul O’Neill (July), John Sterling (August), and Freddy The Pan Man (September) will all be fired after winless months as well.

*Brian Cashman will be fired along after April along with Girardi. Interim GMs Stick Michael (May), Buck Showalter (June), Mike Mussina (July 1), John Sterling (July 2-July 31), Guy Oseary (August), and Hank Steinbrenner (September) will also be fired after winless months. Mussina will actually quit after realizing he isn’t allowed to do the job from his Montoursville, PA home. Steinbrenner will fire himself in the most bizarre press conference ever televised by YES.

Awesome work, Sweeny! Now, down off the bridge everybody. Remember, the Phillies started 0-2 last season and won the World Series.
