Brian from San Francisco, a loyal reader, checked in via e-mail with a comment that made me laugh.
“The Yankees are like swine flu,” he wrote. “There’s cause for concern but there’s no reason to panic.”
I would say that sums it up nicely.
Meanwhile, if you’re concerned about the swine flu, the Yankees have a perfect solution. Purchase one of the $2,626 Legends Seats behind the plate. You are guaranteed to be at least 10 feet away from anybody else, so the odds of catching the flu are slim.
