Truckin…up to Brattleboro

October 6th, 2006 → 10:51 am @ // One Comment

I’m about to take off for Brattleboro, Vermont, where I’ll be reading as part of their annual literary festival. As a result, I won’t have any trenchant comments on:

* The Yankees loss to the Tigers.
* The continuation of A-Rod’s playoff disappearing act. Yesterday, A-Rod struck out with the bases loaded in the first. Since Game 4 of the ’04 ALCS, he’s 4-35 with 0 RBIs in October.

* The Dodgers loss to the Mets. Grady Little started the rookie Hong-Chih Kuo (who-o?) (sorry – – couldn’t resist) instead of Greg Maddux. Seriously. (Let’s hope nobody takes Keith Law’s and Bill Simmons’s columns and reads them to Grady.)
* Nomar’s injury.

More, and more of those year-end wrap-ups, over the weekend…

    DETROIT WILL WIN BOTH AT HOME, TAKING THE YANKS DOWN 3 TO 1.

    Randy J will be ineffective because he’s old and feeble, and Bonderman will be nasty against a mediocre Wright (did anyone see Bonderman beat the Sox earlier this year? Egads, if he is that filthy, Yanks don’t score 2). And A-Rod got booed viciously today. Ah, the pleasures of Schadenfreude.
