It appears that all systems are a go right now for the Bombers.
A-Rod is starting September as if it were April all over again. Wang continues to be in the hunt for his first Cy Young as he is leading the league for the 2nd straight season in wins. The series in Boston will determine who gets that hardware. Heck, even Kyle Farnsworth is gaming right now.
Matsui and Giambi are slumping, Moose is set to get another start, and I'd like to see Duncan get more time. Other than that, I can't find too much to gripe about.
You Can Quote Me On That: From the mouth of Old Prof. in April, May, June, July, and 7 times in August: "The Yankees are not making the playoffs". With a 4 game lead in the Wild Card and less than 20 games to go, the Yanks are saying otherwise.
Off on Monday, then 3 games in Toronto.
NY Football Giants: Look, I'm not going to kid myself with this season, the Giants were mathematically eliminated the instant they opted to extend Tom Coughlin's coaching contract instead of giving him the boot like he deserved. I sense I'm going to be repeating myself quite a bit as the season goes on so here's the first time I'm saying it for the '07 season: Coughlin should be fired right now. Period end of story. Evidence for week 1, a game they should have won is as follows: injuries, missed tackles, missed reads, suggest ineffective preseason, which is entirely on the coaches. Due to a continuation of piss poor playing calling, he put the franchise player at risk several times, finally coming home to roost on a bad 2pt conversion call (Manning by the way was excellent). Finally, he has ruined the career of a bright young NFL prospect in Mathias Kiwanuka by moving him to LB from D-Line. Anyone who knows football knows you can move players forward (safety to backer, backer to line, etc.), you cannot move them backward. Kiwanuka now plays with reserve and pause and allowed the TE from Dallas to have a career game. Bottom line, Couglin has to go, the sooner the better.
So here I am, one of my team's is surging, the other, not so much. Things could be worse, and at the end of the day, I have a feeling that all will be good come October.
