Full Fathom Five, thy father lies. You can't see the tragedy any longer.
It lies buried beneath a tranquil sea.
For those of you who watched the first 8 innings of today's laugher ( for most of the game the Yankee's line was all A-Rod....1 hit...1 run...1 error....all from Mr. Rodriguez). Then, the errors started to kick in all over.
Ryan Murphy must have the worst arm of any catcher in baseball. Weak and off target. He also was asleep at the switch when some 240 pound Red Sock stole second on a high inside pitch. It is almost as if Murphy was taking a call on his cell.
Our fine, multi-purpose right fielder back-up, utility player let a key fly ball pop out of his glove., clearing the bases. Arod, at first, is clown college. Seriously, it is a repeat of last year when Beltran and McCann played games at first base, only with an older, less experienced guy at the position. Why not let CC Sabathia play there?
Is this what Brian Cashman has wrought? Have we only progressed backwards? Can't wait to hear how, Hal ( "I'm not cheap" ) responds with disappointment and fury at this fiasco of a performance.
Just as an aside; I can't remember a worse Yankee line-up in 30 years.
So tomorrow night, after a week of excuses and digressions, we get to see Tanaka again. This could be it folks. The rocky shoals and the 16 foot waves approach. If Tanaka goes down again, the Yankees will all know the season is over.
Gulp. Glug, glug.
