For the first time since 1992, the Yankees and Redsocks sit at the bottom of the AL East this late in May. That year, we finished fourth. It's not hard to imagine us in a 20-year-cycle.
We have an injury-compromised Mattingly (Alex) and a slow-swinging Danny Tartabull (Tex). If somebody can rouse pet cougars and bring guns to the clubhouse, we'll have a Mel Hall. (Looking at you, Jayson Nix; you've already done enough!)
At least in 1992, we were relatively young.
Fourth and old. Fourth and tired. Fourth and long. Bring on the punting team.
