Yankees In A Deep Sleep

O, BY THE WAY

The Kickoff

May 31, 2007|By BILL ORDINE

We were all sleeping. That's the only thing I can say." - Yankees pitcher Andy Pettitte.

And when they woke up, they were 14 1/2 games behind the Red Sox. Don't you hate it when that happens?

Actually, Pettitte was talking about the steal of home by Toronto's Aaron Hill on Tuesday night that helped the Blue Jays edge the Yanks, 3-2. But he could have been speaking of the entire season.

Roger Clemens is set to join the big club next week. But the way things have gone since he announced several weeks ago that he was joining New York for a prorated $28 million - and how futile it all appears now - you wonder if George Steinbrenner is having buyer's remorse.
