Derek H., of New Jersey, e-mailed to say, "Jimmy, I thought since you are Yankees fan, you should post this for motivation this year. There's a pretty lame TV commercial playing on NESN, the network of the Red Sox (below is the link). At the 30-second mark, it shows a quick shot of the scoreboard standings, with the Sox at 102-60, winning the AL East by 28 games over the 74-88 Yankees (pic above). I would not give the veteran Yankees team any ammunition, especially since they seem to be liking the underdog role to the Sox. The Red Sox own NESN, so I'm surprised they would allow this." Well, a couple of things here. The Yankees ARE underdogs, so they'll just have to deal with it. And hopefully they don't need a commercial for motivation. But I give credit to the marketing people behind this campaign. The absurd standings make you take notice. Here is the full video.
