YAWN

I was all set to do a dissertation on yesterdays game, where the Yankees, " Trotted out starting 9 in opening preview, " per the Daily News headline, when El Duque pre-empted me.

I will say one thing.  I was overcome with ennui.

It was painful to watch.  I felt as though someone was adding layers of cement bags to my chest, with each pitch.

Other than Nathan's collapse at the end of 5 innings ( just like last year ), there was nothing to watch.

I seriously don't even remember if anyone got a hit, scored a run, or made a play.

It was like my eyes froze and my brain went blank.

I have since finished half a bottle of Crater Lake Vodka.

I feel better now.

I am with you on Wilson.

Chapman will be fine after his suspension, after his re-habilitation, and as soon as they permit " open carry" of handguns at the stadium.
