|Plight of the Yankee Fan, 2017|
Today, Rupert Murdoch's Ken Davidoff - wait, let me rephrase - Jerry Hall's Ken Davidoff outlines the candidates to be "OFFICIAL ACE OF THE 2018 NEW YORK YANKEES," - sort of the pitching version of Bigelow Tea. Apparently, the immediate season is just too depressing for a 400-word news hole. We're already looking ahead to the post-A-Rod Yankee Dystopia of free agents, international imports and James "Katfish" Kaprielian.
Meanwhile, Fox Sports is humping Brian Cashman's four off-season "mulligans," which mostly decry his inability to trade Jacoby Ellsbury for - well - a good cryonic tank. Is it just me, or as training camp nears, is the reality of a middling Yankee team starting to sink in?
