Bizarro world in the land of pro baseball
As the MLB season draws to a close, I'm left wondering if fell asleep in the U.S. and woke up in Oz or some other weird world, because everything seems upside down and turned around. Neither the Yankees nor the Red Sox are in first place in the American League East? Tampa Bay could come away with that honor? And the Yankees, for the first time since I started watching them, probably won't even make it to the post season?!? (Thank God, so far anyway, for the Mets!) Yankee pitching has become so decimated and unreliable that Carl Pavano - CARL PAVANO! - of all people has become someone who not only pitches well but is winning games for them?!? Can someone please explain to me how all of this is happening?
