False prophet

The Times-Tribune - - EDITORIAL -

Ed­i­tor: Be­fore the start of the sea­son, The Times-tri­bune’s Don­nie Collins gazed into his pin­striped crys­tal ball and made this pre­dic­tion about the Bos­ton Red Sox: “A good counter to what the Yan­kees built. The ri­valry will rekin­dle, but this will be a sur­pris­ingly medi­ocre third-place team.”

Af­ter a fran­chise record 108-win reg­u­lar sea­son, win­ning the Amer­i­can League East pen­nant and Amer­i­can League Di­vi­sion Seri­esclinch­ing vic­to­ries at Yan­kee Sta­dium, at least Collins was ac­cu­rate about how the “ri­valry will rekin­dle.”

For fu­ture pre­dic­tions, my ad­vice is to cut back on watch­ing the YES Net­work, which broad­casts Yan­kees games. Con­tin­ued ex­po­sure to the driv­el­ing voice of Yan­kees an­nouncer Michael Kay de­stroys your skills as a prog­nos­ti­ca­tor.

Go Red Sox! BILL PRYLE JR. CAR­BON­DALE
