Greetings from Gate F-81

Here we are at the Lee Roy Selmon International Airport in Tampa, hanging out and waiting to go home.

Based on the comments, seems like a few people want Joe Torre fired after 11.7 percent of the season. That would like firing an NFL coach in the third quarter of the second game of the season. Anybody who is in some kind of panic now is embarrassing himself

It’s April 25 and they are four games out of first.

The rotation for much of the season has been Andy Pettitte and assorted scrubs. Perhaps Torre should get a chance to manage his actual team before anybody’s passes judgment.

By June the Yankees could well have a rotation of Chien-Ming Wang, Andy Pettitte, Mike Mussina, Roger Clemens and Phil Hughes. Sub Jeff Karstens for Clemens and that still is pretty good.

Meanwhile, I’m told there are 5,000 tickets available to see Phil Franchise tomorrow if you’re interested in going. I tend to not watch every game when I am off but I’m looking forward to watching the kid pitch.
