Last night in the comments section, Schteeve asked, "If the 2008 Yankees were a character from fiction who would they be?"
Chyll Will offered: "Gollem: Seems he was good maybe five hundred years ago...Garfield: Old, fat, and not nearly as entertaining as he used to be. Or The Family Circus: stuck in a time warp and way out of touch with reality."
Mr OK Jazz TOKYO wrote: "Charles Foster Kane: Started out with ideals and became a bloated, pompous mess with no friends, spending money wildly and ending up alone in an over-priced tomb."
Jeb had a bunch of winners: "Daisy Buchanan from The Great Gatsby: Looks good, but has no integrity and will ultimately disappoint you. How about Dorian Gray? Seemingly young and virile, but with a picture of themselves in the attic that's aging beyond belief...For some reason I initially kept thinking of Bob Ewell from To Kill a Mockingbird but there was no way that could work unless Yankee fans are Arod's daughter and we're put Cashman on trial for Arod's sins....Hey it does kind of work."
