Yankees the World Over

 It started in Bagram. There on the corner is the guy with the New York Yankees cap. On the Qatar, where the Major sitting behind me is wearily explaining to his specialist, a Boston Red Sox fan, why the Yankees will win the World Series this year. They have to, Sabathia, A.P., A-Rod, etc. His specialist gleefully points out that the whole A-Rod steroids thing will bring New York crashing down. My gut feeling is that the controversy is only the straw that breaks the camels back. Joe Torre has exposed the seamy underside of the Yankees locker room. No matter how much talent you accumulate, chemistry is what makes teams great. You can’t have chemistry with dissension. And the specialist sings, “Tessie, you’re the only, only, only.” as we board the plane for Kuwait.
