Of course every one of these lamentations begins with a disclaimer: "I was the first to say Torre was great, but..." And, "Don't get me wrong I love Jeter, but..." The Universe is equivocating a call to arms. They don't know exactly what to do. Their fans are reciting the Tantric mantra "At least we made the playoffs" to deaf ears. The winds are changing; have changed, clear skies ahead. Here are some examples:
Home News Tribune, "These Tigers prove it takes more than money"
Shaun Powell says "Jeter support has come up short" for News Day
"Taking joy in the Yankees' misery" by Kevin Hench, FOXSports.com

Tomorrow night is Bingo night as is every Wednesday.
Later in the month we'll be premiering our own beer by Harpoon: Thom's Old Ale.
And, on October 30 we'll be having our first annual Clamapalooza during the Patsies Monday Night game. Come in and enjoy Harpoon specials and freshly shucked clams for very cheap. Don't forget to join the Friends of Harpoon for the special.
And after all is said and done
You wouldnÂt be satisfied with anyone
So when you get rid of me
Who will the next fool be?
Will he believe all those lies?
End up like me, with tears in his eyes?
I know, I know, I know, I know...
