Roger Clemens got a win in his return to New York but it won't be enough to rescue the Bombers. I think the real problem with the Yankees this year is that they have brought down the wrath of the Baseball Gods by starting to build a new stadium. The House that Ruth built and the scene of more World Series than any other venue is destined for the wrecking ball after the 2008 season. I think it's a sacrilege. It's like blowing up the Taj Mahal or St. Peters Basilica in order to make more money. The ghosts of the Babe, DiMaggio, Gehrig etc. are rightfully outraged.
Speaking of ghosts, Jose Mesa made his Phillie's debut today after I did a separated at birth post that inspired Pat Gillick to sign him. He threw 2 wild pitches that contributed to today's 17-5 debacle. Just like the Phil's to sweep the Met's and drop 2 out of 3 to one of the worst teams in baseball. It's all Mrs. G's fault for pointing out the resemblance.
