• The Yankee Stadium thing

    You cannot watch a nationally televised New York Yankees game without at least one (and usually several) mentions about Yankee Stadium and the short right field porch that gives the Yankees an advantage. Jake Peavy recently fanned the flames by ripping the Stadium and the Yankees after his recent loss to the team. ”They hit the ball in the air and it’s a home run,” he is quoted as saying. Perhaps as one who covers the team, this criticism is taken personally. But what the heck, folks? It is not like Yankee Stadium is Coors Field.
