Is Maury Povich going to set the Yankee hitters and A.J. Burnett straight?

I read via Yankee beat writer Sweeny Murti's WFAN Twitter feed that Maury Povich and Connie Chung were at Monday's playoff game. My first reaction was to ask on Twitter if Maury was there to tell some player that he was not the father. Sweeny replied, "I think Maury told the Yankees they are not Cliff Lee's daddy." Heh.

So, it got me to thinking if Maury should do one of his phobia shows with the Yankees. Like when he helped the people were was afraid of flowers, pickles, cotton balls and foam peanuts, cats, and even chicken.

The show's phobia "cures" usually entail having Maury's staff bringing out some of the "scary" items to freak out the people.



Then the show has some phobia expert work with the affected guests.

So I'm thinking that the Yankees ought to have Maury work with the Yankee batters, who seem to be phobic about getting some hits. And Maury ought to also spend time with A.J. Burnett, with his apparent fear of winning a ballgame!

C'mon, Maury, help the Yankees out!

Well, Maury is the son of Shirley Povich, who wrote baseball stories and columns for the Washington Post from 1924 to 1998. Maybe Maury learned something from his father.

"The million-to-one shot came in. Hell froze over. A month of Sundays hit the calendar. Don Larsen today pitched a no-hit, no-run, no-man-reach-first game in the World Series." -- Shirley Povich, October 8, 1956
