FIFTY THOUSAND MOONS

Suddenly, the Yankees are creeping into contention not just for the one-game, wild card play-in, elimination round.
Two more humiliations of a confusingly impotent Oriole team, and the Yankees will be
described as, " back in contention."
If we get closer to the Orioles, closer to first place, people will begin saying, " and it is only July. Any team can get hot. Why not the Yankees?"
Ownership will start looking for short-term upgrades that might push us right into the thick of things. And keep us there, just on the outside looking in for years.
Our meager and highly limited list of minor league " prospects" can quickly be decimated in a trade, orchestrated by the dullest blade in the drawer: Brian Cashman.
Think I'm over-reacting?
Most Americans don't believe the " electorate" is dumb enough to elect Trump as President. I think this is a real possibility, not to mention a real danger.
Certainly the Yankees, too, are capable of danger and delusion. Hal Steinbrenner, who inherited everything and has done nothing smart, absolutely believes in fairy tales.
This Yankee rally may have dire implications for the future. Just like the upcoming election.
This may be worse than it appears.
