So to speak.
As I was dozing off last night, I was constructing a little piece in my head about what I think should be done with the Yankees. I almost, but not quite, came to the conclusion that I thought Joe Torre should be fired. I didn't really think it through all the way, but it looks as if it will probably happen before I have a chance to write about it, at least according to this report.
Other thoughts, quickly, since I'm on my way out the door:
Unload A-Rod, somehow, anyhow. All-time level great player. Future Hall of Famer. Not a comnpetitor. Not a Yankee.
Wire Steinbrenner's jaw shut, so he can't try to do Brian Cashman's job for him anymore.
Get pitching. Young pitching. Not 40-year old, aching back pitching. I could have lived with Josh Beckett being a bust in New York. I can't live with any more Kevin Brown, Randy Johnson types.
Try not to take too much solace in the fact that, mathematically speaking, you won infinitely more playoff games this year than the third-place Red Sox. No one really cares.
