"The Hell With the Pitchers"
Over on Athletics Nation, Tyler forwards a great article from a principally political blog, "The 2004 Yankees: Déjà Vu All Over Again". (I would have linked directly to the Rothenberg Political Report, but they don't offer permalinks.) In particular, he notes that Rickey Henderson ended up having to go to Oakland to get his ring because the Boss in those days had a peculiar fixation on offense:
That year , the Red Sox went on the win the American League. If that happens again in 2004, more than heads will roll in New York. There may be bodies. Piles of bodies. But in light of the recent A-Rod trade, one thing is clear: Steinbrenner is the same old Steinbrenner. Focus on the hitting and "the hell with the pitchers."At least, I hope it's déjà vu.
