The Beatles taught us through song in the 1960s that “Money Can’t Buy Me Love.”
The New York Yankees are teaching us in the 21st century that money can’t buy them love … or championships.
They can have the highest payroll in baseball, as always.
They can have Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Roger Clemens, et al.
Come October, one thing they won’t have again is something they haven’t possessed since 2000 … a World Series title.
As you know, the Anaheim Angels are lurking in the background. They’ve done it before – and they will do it again – when it comes to knocking the Yankees out of the playoffs in October.
If the season were to end today, the Yankees would not be in the playoffs. But history tells us the Yankees will be there; no matter where they stand on Aug. 9.
They won’t be there long in October. The Angels are just around the corner waiting to eliminate the Yankees.
This will break the hearts of such East Coast transplants as Pat Colabucci who are in San Diego rooting for the Yankees.
