Nor was Mr. Carl Crawford back in lineup for today’s 5-4 loss but at least without speedy outfielder Team managed to keep games two and three of series close.
Which brings Blog to final point of day. Baseball analyst Tim McCarver came a little unhinged Saturday while blasting off on newly departed George Schteinmeister:
You remember some of those despotic leaders in World War II, primarily in Russia and Germany, where they used to take those pictures that they had … taken of former generals who were no longer alive, they had shot ‘em. They would airbrush the pictures, and airbrushed the generals out of the pictures. In a sense, that’s what the Yankees have done with Joe Torre. They have airbrushed his legacy. I mean, there’s no sign of Joe Torre at the stadium.
All Blog knows is Blog can FINALLY publish long-shelved essay comparing Game 7 of 2001 World Serious to BATTLE of MONTE CASSINO.
