Ah, the Yankees. The Yankees who were old. The Yankees who were washed up. The Yankees who were supposed to continue their drop towards the cellar while a rejuvenated Red Sox team rose back to the top.
The Yankees who are in first place in the AL East as May begins.
Dammit, Yankee devil magic. Go away. And take your renaissance-experiencing 35+-year-old players with you.
