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.
