Some will disregard this baseball season as an experimental farce (and it basically is), and they will do it even more so and with more passion as their teams slip further down the standings. So you can expect a lot of cries of “Charlatan!” from New York in the coming days, and it’s not like Yankees fans and observers need anything more than a stiff breeze to attach a disclaimer to anything that doesn’t involve the pinstripes as much as they see required. Slipping down to the No. 8 seed and having to actually consider competing with the Baltimore Orioles is probably not what those who don’t recognize any accomplishment outside of The Boogey Down to be legitimate had in mind. But that’s where the Yanks find themselves after losing their seventh game in the last nine, and 14th in the last 19, to the Toronto/Buffalo/Wherever They Lay Their Head Blue Jays.
