Yesterday, Squawker Lisa accused me of "chugging some haterade" when it comes to the Yankees.
Here are my responses to some of her charges:
He's becoming a bitter Met fan!
You wanna talk steroids? Do I have to bring up your hero Mike Piazza again?
As I conceded yesterday: "the Yankees are not alone here." But if Yankee fans claim that 2004 and 2007 are tainted because of Manny Ramirez and David Ortiz, then you have to say the same thing about 1999 and 2000, when Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte started five of the eight Yankee wins.
As for Piazza, if the allegations you refer to turn out to be true, well, at least it will not taint any Met championships.
And Jeffrey Maier? If he had been at a Mets playoff game, he would have interfered with a David Wright homer or something. Oh, wait. David Wright doesn't hit homers anymore.
If reader Uncle Mike had written this part, he would have said, "Oh, wait. The Mets don't have playoff games anymore."
And as for spending, at least the Yankees didn't get taken in by either Bernie Madoff or Steve Phillips.
No, just Carl Pavano and Kei Igawa.
my team has October baseball to look forward to. What do you get to watch next month? MRI results?
I hear ABC has a new series debuting next month: "Reyes' Anatomy."
Scratch that. You do have something to root for. Your beloved Boston Red Sox. That's right. Red Sox Nation will have a few new members in the postseason, thanks to you and the other denizens of the He-Man Yankee Haters Club. Good grief.
But first, I have to join Tiger Nation.
