If you're not reading Horace Clarke's virtual Yankee season, you are missing out

Every day, our blogging partner, who is earnestly chronicling the Yankee season that should have been, makes me laugh out loud. 

Here is what got me today...

Warming up on the wet, slick Stadium field today, though, Aaron "the Oft-Injured" Hicks slipped and pulled a muscle in his thigh.  Yankees trainers assured reporters that it was only a minor pull, and that Hicks would miss at most a day or two.

But Clint Frazier's plantar fasciitis forced his removal from the game, and Aaron Judge reported a strange, burning sensation in his right heel, one that limited him to DHing.  By the ninth inning, Thairo Estrada was playing left field.

"That's all right," Boone reassured reporters after the slushy, seven-hour game.  "We can always call up Estevan Florial again.  Did I ever tell you about his ceiling...?"

Take my advice: Go back and re-read these missives. It's some of the best stuff we've ever printed.

You are correct, Duque. "Very funny stuff" as Johnny Carson would often greet a stand up comic with as he approached Ed and the couch after a routine. Horace has a vivid imagination.

Once again, thanks so much, guys.

But hey, I'm just following the news. This country moved past parody long ago.
