The Yankees did not beat Baltimore. Texas did not beat Baltimore.
We beat Boston to win the division, remember?
Cano hit .620 in the last 10 days of the regular season. He homered twice and drove in six runs on that decisive, last day of the season to break the tie for first. Grandy went deep. I think even A-Rod got on base once. Kuroda was heroic. Even Swisher may have hit a ball out of the infield.
But that was against Boston, playing mostly their AA guys up for the September coffee.
Last night, we had, by my count, 12 opportunities not just to tie the game, but to blow it open. We failed every time. The Ichiro ballet score should not count in real baseball. He was amazing, but the Yankees vomited on their shoes. Every time.
Pictured below area confident and resolute pair of our heros. A-Rod stands fast with his fired up buddy Nick Swisher. We are going to depend upon them?
I told you before; one and done at best.
Cashman is interviewing and will depart. He may be a fool, but he isn't stupid. This team will drown in failure from now on. No George to spend his ill-gotten gains on real players.
Remember, the big Yankee news last night was that Jason Nix is back and ready to play.
Time to turn off the tv, the radio and the internet.
The pain of what is unfolding is too great and far too easily predicted.
One and done. Again.
