Bomber loss is net result
Which was stranger: A fan falling from the upper deck at the Stadium or Jose Contreras throwing a gem? In purely chronological terms, the dazed fan's eighth-inning tumble onto the netting behind home plate was rarer, since the last time anyone could remember it happening was in 2000.

August 10, 2005 -- White Sox 2 Yankees 1

Jose Contreras never was consistent in New York, while Shawn Chacon already seems to have figured it out. There's really nothing more Chacon can do other than win, of course.

Engaged in a pitcher's duel with the erratic former Yankee, Chacon allowed only three hits over seven innings last night. Full story (http://nypost.com/sports/yankees/26786.htm)

YANKEE NEWCOMERS HAVE FIGHTING SPIRIT (http://nypost.com/sports/yankees/26802.htm)
By JOEL SHERMANTHE Yankees gathered behind home plate yesterday around 4 p.m. for an annual team photo, disproving in the notion a picture is worth a thousand words.
FALL CLASSIC (http://nypost.com/sports/yankees/26785.htm)

By EVAN GROSSMANA thrill-seeking teenager hoping to make ESPN highlights plunged over 50 feet from the upper deck seats into the netting behind home plate last night in the eighth inning of the Yankees' 2-1 loss to the White Sox, landing in front of a stunned Yankee Stadium crowd of 53,946.
MOYER TURNED DOWN WAIVER DEAL TO BRONX (http://nypost.com/sports/yankees/26788.htm)

By MICHAEL MORRISSEY and GEORGE KINGJamie Moyer was claimed on waivers by the Yankees, but the 42-year-old lefty declined to come to New York, sources told The Post last night.
ACHING BACK SHELVES UNIT (http://nypost.com/sports/yankees/26789.htm)

By MICHAEL MORRISSEYAlthough his back and his personality often resemble Kevin Brown, the Yankees actually need Randy Johnson in the long term. So the club made the cautious decision yesterday and scratched the Big Unit from his start tomorrow night against Texas.

I just got back from New York where I saw Monday and Tuesday's games at Yankee Stadium. I read that article in the Daily News about the Boss' unhappiness with Joe Torre. However, even a George meltdown (which produces great back pages in the NY tabloids) has taken a back seat to Scott Harper's fall.
