Yanks Not Sure Whether to Start Pennant Charge Now or Wait Another Week

This is the headline on the Yankees website:

Now's the time for Bombers to go for it

Oh, really?

Isn't that editorializing a bit? Shouldn't journalists keep their opinions to themselves?

There are about 30 games left. Maybe Girardi has a plan. Maybe the jockey who starts whipping his horse too far from the finish line ends up getting thrown. Anybody think about that?

You bet Joe Girardi has.

Why start now? Wouldn't it be cooler to start playing really hard next week, or the week after next?

If what we're talking about is an incredible, made-for-TV ending, why should we throw everything into each game now? We should play .500 ball until until, say, Sept. 15 -- and then really, really, really, REALLY try -- I mean, absolutely, really, really really, OMG I mean really try -- as opposed to just sort of, you know, try.

Just trying to offer some alternatives. No pack journalism around here.
