The Curse of the Carpetbagger?

Is it too soon for the forlorn Yankee fans to connect the dots? It seems that by now maybe we can say it out loud. Baseball, long a game of arcane tradition and superstition, may have a new curse on its hands.

Boston had to live with the curse of the Bambino for 86 years and the Cubs are still living with the curse of the billy goat.

So long as Yankee fans tolerate a carpet bagging senator from Arkansas/Illinois in their midst, they are doomed to October as the cruelest month. 

Empire State residents: it is up to you. Saint Hillary is costing you the World Championship that you believe is yours by birthright and bloated payroll.

See you in Spring Training '07!
