One year late, from back in the pack, the Yankees give us a real September. Maybe it is too late to save them. But it does not change that they have come back and played real ball, when no one thought they could. It has to make you cheer, whether you like the new wild-card system or not. There are 16 games left, which makes it the shortest possible season. The Yankees and their fans will take it.

Everybody wants Bernie Williams to be pure. It is the agent, Scott Boras, who has to come up a money grubber. The fans want it to be this way, so does George Steinbrenner. But Boras is not the one who shoots for the moon here, no matter how much he talks. It is Bernie Williams. Sometimes in sports, the agent still works for the player, not the other way around. Boras is just doing what he is told, no matter how upsetting that is to everybody who wants Williams to be a sweeetheart in all matters.
