The Yankees, who looked like they were going to go right into the cess pool when Wang went down possibly for the season, have been doing well.
They are 16-12 since Wang's injury and have stormed back into contention.
They are 2 games back in the loss column of my Red Sox and only 5 games back of the Rays.
They just swept the pesky Oakland A's and now get ready to play another overachieving team in the Twins.
The Yankees are back! They are probably the toast of the town, right?
Of COURSE NOT!
Hell, Bill Madden, the great writer for the Daily News wrote today about how the sweep of a winning team in late July is not impressive.
I've got Yankee fan friends talking as if THEY were the ones swept.
"Man if Molina doesn't get hit and Betimit strikes out we would have lost that series."
But you didn't!
What were the Yankees supposed to do?
For God's sake, my team just got swept and I still feel confident.
The Yankees do the sweeping and it is chicken little time.
My God... are 21st century Yankee fans becoming 20th century Red Sox fans?
