Half-Empty? It's just an illusion

Yes, here I go again, claiming the glass is half-full.
Here we sit one half game out of first place, and I say we're sittin' pretty, and this is why: As Johnny regrettably demonstrated last night, all streaks must come to an end. The run our boys have been on has been a bad one. A very, very bad one. They've dropped 12 of the last 18 games; that's 4 of the last 5 series. That's a pathetic show of their potential, as we all know. Meanwhile in sole possession of first-place (for the first time since opening day, by the way) are the yanks, on a similar (but opposite) tear of 13 for 17, winning the last 4 series. Normally this would be bad news, for this time of year, but that is a ridiculous win rate for a rotation of their caliber. I hate to see them in first place, but usually it's because they're capable of holding onto it... this time it's just because I hate them. Because no, I really don't think they're capable.
These streaks have run their course, and the end is near for both of them. It's time for our boys to turn it around... and it's time for the Ranger's, A's & Twins to pull those yank hurlers from under cover of prince purple-lips and gary sheffanie and expose them for what they are: mediocre, and overrated at that.
