When New York flicked away the Braves in four straight, as if they were an ant on a Central Park picnic blanket, the Yankees and their nearly $86 million in player payroll plopped their fannies onto the throne of baseball in the 1990s.
You know, of all the teams we've played in the postseason over the last nine or 10 years, the Yankees' lineup in '96 (a World Series loss for Atlanta) and the '93 Phillies (an NLCS loss) presented the most problems for our pitching staff because of their patience.
The intrigue of the competition in this season's World Series had such a feeble grip on fans that Jim Gray's ill-timed NBC interview with Pete Rose two Sundays ago generated at least as much water-cooler talk over the course of the Series as the games did.
