Nothing s working. Four hits is a flood of offense now.
One hit every other inning...almost. None timely.
Is A-Rod just burning out in the August heat? We all thought that would happen, even as a full time DH. The more he gets on base, the longer he has to stand up and the more he has to run and slide. He is forty. Only knuckleball pitchers can be effective, for a full season, at that age.
Jacoby is 4-45? Gardy , for some reason, is as slow as Beltran when he is on first and tries to steal second. Does he have a running form of the "yips?" One of the fastest guys in the league cannot steal a base?
Stephen Drew is much too much the power hitter wanna be, and not enough the baseball player. It is unacceptable that he won't even attempt a bunt with no out , the tying run on first, and 75% of the left-side of the infield unoccupied by the enemy.
And is he doesn't have the brain to try, Joe Girardi must force him to. And if the manager won't insist, then he should go. We have horrible hitters acting like prima donnas, and a manager who is lying in the post game conferences.
Chase Utley is having no better a year than Stephen Drew, only for 3 times the millions, and future year options to saddle us with. If they trade for him on his final lap at age 36, and give up any player for him, there is evidence of true insanity in the Yankee front offices.
Which desperation can invoke.
The Yankees are acting like refugees, mindlessly overcrowding already non sea worthy boats, and heading into the ocean waters.
We should have known.
We did know.
We were simply duped.
