The Fall of the Roman Empire.
I'm talking, of course, about the New York Yankees.
I hate the Yankees. fricking hate them. But having said that, to make this pronoucement because they lost their first two games displays a vast ignorance about baseball.
Most division champs only win 57% or so of their games. This, coupled with their injuries to start the season, shows you're way ahead of yourself. If the Yankees are below .500 after May 31st, then people will take you seriously.
