The Yankees will now shave their heads in solidarity

So tonight begins the infamous Subway Series. This series usually brings a level of excitement among Yankees fans that rivals any Red Sox series. This year, however, there’s something different in the air. Hesitation? Nervousness? Impending doom? Even the most die-hard fans have been keeping the smack talk to a minimum. You know it’s bad when Yankees fans are keeping their mouths shut. Even mother nature has chimed in, with a weekend of wind and rain planned for New York.

And just to add to the drama, the Yankees have to go right into a Red Sox series Monday night at home. This week, there’s no middle ground. Either the Yankees are going to steamroll through the next 6 games, or they’re going to shit the pinstriped bed.

The Pros: Derek Jeter is having his best start of his career. Jorge Posada has the highest batting average in the AL. A-Rod, although cooled off, is still performing extremely well.

The Cons: The pitching is awful and they continue to call up pitchers from the minors to fill in the blanks. Who the hell is Clippard? Sunday’s starting pitcher for the Yankees, that’s who. And Kyle Farnsworth is talking smack about Clemens, which is bound to piss of Clemens’ butt buddy Pettitte. I’m calling it now: a slap fight between Pettitte and Farnsworth in the locker room culminating with Mussina grabbing them both by the ears and making them his bitches.

I would pay good money to see this. Can it be arranged?

I'll work on it. I'm sure we can arrange bitch slapping of some sort.

To be fair to him, Tyler Clippard is ones of your best pitching prospects not named Phil Hughes.

It's a little early for him to be coming up, but that's the situation in which the Yankees find themselves.

He's a flyball pitcher, which might actually help in cavernous Shea, but as a Mets fan, I'm hoping some of those flies go over the fence on Sunday.
