When he was relatively silent for those first few days, I kept envisioning the post-Lufthansa heist murder scene from “Goodfellas,” with “Layla” playing in the background as Joe Torre’s bloody corpse gets pulled out of a pink Cadillac, followed by Brian Cashman frozen to death in a meat truck. But he kept himself in check, which makes me wonder if George is just plain old and we haven’t fully realized it yet. Remember, this is the same guy who hired someone to basically frame Dave Winfield, whose biggest crime was that he wasn’t quite as good as Reggie Jackson. Now George is watching the Red Sox celebrate at Yankee Stadium … and there are no major repercussions? Huh?
(We’re sure he’s still alive, right?)
