Squawker Jon isn't the only person to get advice from Razor Shines. In a Faster Times column, I also consulted the Mets third base coach to ask him about the Mets' season, and the Yankees' playoff chances. I even asked him if Derek Jeter is really underrated! His answers are pretty amusing.
Oh, and I had to laugh at the fact that Gary Sheffield appears to have thrown the mother of all hissy fits with the Mets. Surprise, surprise, as Gomer Pyle would say.
In other news, Peter Abraham reports that Johnny Damon has rented a bus and invited Yankee teammates to go to see a Creed concert with him. Phil Coke, Brian Bruney, Dave Robertson, Eric Hinske, and Kevin Long are among the Yankees going along.
I'm wondering what the bus looks like. Is it like the Who's Magic Bus, or the bus in the Beatles' "Magical Mystery Tour"? How about Ken Kesey's "Furthur"? (Come to think of it, the 60s were a big time for buses!) Let's hope the bus doesn't look the way Furthur does now!
Coming later today, my highly anticipated predictions for Yankees-Red Sox. But in the meantime, leave us some predictions of your own!
