The Channel vs. Some Other More-Hyped Inferior Lefty
by Mark T.R. Donohue
Hey, this may be an all-time first: There are some guys coming over to my place tonight to watch the Rockies game. Yes, it may have more to do with the fact that my apartment complex has a swimming pool and it's about as hot as it gets in the mountains this week, but this still never happens. As much as I have tried to downplay the Colorado marketing department's attempt to delineate the Yankees series at Coors as somehow different and special and more significant than the other 159 games on the schedule, I have to admit that I am buying into this thing. I want the Rockies to win this game tonight more than I have any regular-season game they've played in ages. I want you Yankee people to know the dazzling variety of pitching programming viewable once every five days on the Francis Channel. I want everybody to know the Kaz Matsui comeback is no longer a rumor or a theory. I want everybody to know that Willy Taveras sucks just as much as I say he does.
