They don't go out with a whimper, but with a bang.
Sure, Cashman has created another phoney set of hopes and expectations.
True, the " I'm not cheap" brothers failed to invest in the future.
But, dammit, these Yankees are going down to Tampa ( St. Petersburg, actually ), to take on the last, but not least, of their AL East division rivals. And they are going down with a chip on their shoulders.
Cashman's team lost 2 of 3 to Toronto.
Cashman's team lost 2 of 3 to Boston.
Cashman's team lost 2 of 3 to Baltimore.
Who was it who said, " the secret to being successful in this game is to win each series?" Brian Cashman. And Joe Girardi. And Joe Torre. And Casey Stengel. And George Steinbrenner. It is the one universal truth of baseball. The one thing you can predict.
So let's get behind this team. Let's not give up a thing. Not a pitch. Not an error. Not a scratch hit. Let's battle hard, every second.
Let's go down to meet the Tampa Rays and win one for the Gipper.
1 of 3, that's our speed. We own it.
