Mustang had it right: We are facing the Curse of Hope Week

Last year, during Hope Week, the Yankiverse was stunned to hear the news of Hideki Irabu's suicide.

This year, we lose Andy Pettitte and CC Sabathia in one day.

As Goldfinger told James Bond, "Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, and three times is a frickin' Yankee curse."

I'm calling it a three-way. It's a curse. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying to ditch Hope Week. It's one of the best things we do. But for godsake, we should wear protective armor. Rest the vets. We've still got three days left. A couple more injuries, and we'll be seeking comfort from the homeless people we visit.

The only way to break this curse: A Youklis beaning. Bean him until it stops hurting.
