The 2007 Yankees, currently languishing in the sub-basement of the AL East, have become everyone’s favorite punching bag, most recently knocked around by the Toronto Blue Jays. They’ve lost six games in a row and if they get swept by the Sox this weekend, expect George Steinbrenner to set loose an army of killer robots on Manhattan.
Seriously, though, there’s probably nothing they’d like more than to bust out of their slump by burying our $100 million dollar pitcher. Can Matsuzaka hold down that offense? Are Papi and Manny back to being the one-two fist of death? Does Don Mattingly have the most punchable face in all of baseball.
The answer to that last question is, of course, “yes.” For the others… we’ll just have to wait and see.
