Oh who am I kidding? With the way our pitching has looked this year I've already busted the lock on the liquor cabinet.
But one thing to look forward to - the rousing welcome Gary Sheffield is sure to get when he shows up at Yankee stadium today.
Sheffield isn't fearing a negative reaction when he returns to New York later this week. "I know what kind of appreciation I get," said Sheffield, who spent three seasons with the Yankees before being traded.Where I come from we call this denial. She-it, he'll be lucky if they don't throw batteries and spare engine parts at him.
Still, it's something to look forward to. Definitely more interesting to watch than my pitching melting down.
So in honor of what is sure to be a long, long, long week and a half, here's a clip from one of my favorite baseball movies. Incidentally, this is kinda what the Tigers bullpen has looked like this year.
Warning: a few naughty words ahead
