The Idiocy of Yankee Kool-Aid drinkers.

At my school I was talking about the Yankees with a fellow fan. In a short conversation he manged to state several foolish positions. First he claimed that Sheffield was a good defensive outfielder citing his strong arm. This ignores his lack of range and his disdain for hustling. He then claimed Matsui was a savvy fielder. ( Although he claims to have listened to the games he obviously hasn't seen the terrible routes Matsui takes.) Robinson Cano was described as fast despite having only 1 steal all year. The most idiotic point was his attempt to characterize the Yankees as young. This definiton works only if you feel 32 is young and even then they are slightly old. Of course he didn't want to admit that this was trouble so he tried to argue that these days aging doesn't matter.
