Bombers look a bit out of it
There is something missing from the Yankees this season. Maybe it's just luck, the sort of baseball rainbow that allowed last year's Red Sox rotation to go an entire season without missing a start due to injury while this year's Yankees staff can't seem to go a week without someone coming up lame. But then again, maybe it's just an inch or a foot or a yard.

YANKS ONE RUN CHI AGAIN By GEORGE KING

August 11, 2005 -- Not wanting to be a distraction to his team, Joe Torre says he will address anything George Steinbrenner has to say when the season is complete.

On Oct. 3 we will hear what Torre thought about The Boss criticizing his manager's bullpen choices Tuesday night and any other subject Steinbrenner dissects before Oct. 2, the final game of what is coming very close to a lost season. Full story (http://www.nypost.com/sports/yankees/51702.htm)


AMAZON AARON NOW REDUCED TO SMALL ROLE (http://www.nypost.com/sports/yankees/51700.htm)
By JAY GREENBERG
IF, after only eight runs and 22 hits over 27 innings, the pitching-desperate Yankees aren't quite convinced Aaron Small is for real, we suggest they pitch him next week in St. Petersburg, then six days later and another six days after that, just to see if they wake up in playoff position.
PROCTOR TO START; UNIT TO WAIT (http://www.nypost.com/sports/yankees/51691.htm)

YANKEE NOTES
Randy Johnson isn't starting tonight against the Rangers. That assignment goes to Scott Proctor for the first time in the big leagues. And don't expect Johnson to hurl Tuesday night in St. Petersburg. That chore could be Aaron Small's.

By MICHAEL MORRISSEY
Joe Torre is picking his battles, and he chose not to go toe-to-toe with George Steinbrenner over Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to the White Sox. But just wait until the season ends.

By MICHAEL MORRISSEY
It looks as if Carl Pavano won't be shouldering his share of the load this season.

They need to take a step back from the alliteration in every headline.

NY papers are very respectful of the Sox. It's remarkable to compare that to the coverage in Chicago to which you alert us regularly.

Rowand said he is a fan of the tradition of the Yankees, so he knows how much prestige comes with roaming center field at the Stadium. "I remember my first game out there in 2001," Rowand said. "I stood out there and had chills all game thinking about Joe (DiMaggio) and (Mickey) Mantle." While some outfielders are intimidated by the size of the Stadium's outfield, Rowand said he likes playing there because it's a place where great catches can be made.Wait, they forgot to have a reporter ask Rowand if he'd like to be a Yankee!

It was interesting how virtually every article was drooling over having Aaron in CF. Even superstar Rodriguez, who may not have known Rowand's name ("that centerfielder"), gave credit to his stellar defense. We are lucky to have a guy with Aaron's grinder work ethic, clutch hitting (RISP), sincere modesty and love of the game, playing CF in Chicago (Chicago media take note). He is one of the prime symbols of the 05 Sox.

YES, but WHY would the Chicago Media write about a Current SOX player, when they could instead write about potential and future Cub Centerfielders, like Johnny Damon ??

On the D train back to Manhattan after Tuesday's game, some of us speculated that the Yankees would ditch Bernie Williams and pursue Johnny Damon after the season. Of course, Damon would have to revert back to his Kansas City look from his Jim Morrison (circa "L.A. Woman") look.
