I am officially in despair, and at a loss for words.
This team is driving the bus down the thruway, straight into oncoming traffic. And having a party in the aisle.
One or two more shutouts by Yankee pitching, and the talk will be of winning the AL East. And it is still only July.
The big three didn't even have to pitch last night. Chasen Shreve brought plenty of firepower against an Orioles team that has turned to glue.
Where we go from here is anybody's guess.
But the little rich boy, who never achieved anything positive on his own, is smiling and cackling. He is looking in the mirror and seeing a prince. He is dying his hair orange. He is thinking, " If I can pull this off, then I should run for President. I don't have to do anything to prove worthiness. All I have to do is be upbeat, tout my billions, and make promises. My money will be my competence."
If the Yankee fans want action, he'll give them action. He will start by announcing a new trade agreement. A Yankee-focused agreement in which the Yankees get all the good players. Where the people we give up in any trade are losers, who don't contribute anything to this team. Yes, sir. He will make the Yankees great again. Just by promising to do that.
The weaknesses we despicable fans see at the core; the old and eroding talent, the lack of resources, the crumbling infrastructure of our farm system; the terrible contracts.....all will, overnight, be reset, and restored to former glory.
The little rich boy will deport ( the trade agreement) all of the complaining losers (e.g. Gary Sanchez, Mateo, Mason Williams, Severino, etc ) and bring in established, proven leadership. That is to say rich , white guys who are already wearing championship rings.
Those are the names who can still attract the fans to the stadium. And keep my economy rolling.
What I see cannot be happening here. We are being tortured and, if this continues, humiliated for not being able to see.
