Lou About To Crack
Your friend and mine Les Carpenter, late of the Seattle Times, returns to the well of people he once covered. His conclusion? Mount Lou is about to explode, wreaking its terrible Pompeiian vengeance.
Few not in the owner’s immediate family would shed a tear if Lou treated Vince Naimoli like first base. The interesting thing to watch, though, is what happens if the Yankees’ slide continues. In a sane world, winning several World Series would get JoeTorre substantial job security.
If you think that’s Steinbrenner’s world, well, you probably missed the 1970s.
