More Proof That Yankees Are Second Tier in NYC



I started counting eggs this morning.  Each egg is the equivalent of  a full page in the NY Post sports section.  This morning, the coverage of the Mets included a back page plus 5 single pages inside.

The Yankees earned two eggs, one broken in the carton.  There isn't much to write when a team scores no runs, and ekes out three meaningless hits.  Sounds like their "play-in " game performance of last fall.  The gateway to the playoffs for garbage teams. Now the Yankees, " bar of achievement."

Today, however, the Canadian Club challenge commences.   One shot of CC for every scoreless inning Sabathia pitches.

You just can't go wrong.

Unless, of course, he throws nary a goose-egg.
