The Yankee tomato can speaks

Emotional words last night from "Knute" Boone: 

“There’s no question that that has to improve. I believe it will improve. But we’ve got to continue to work and make sure we’re making the necessary adjustments each and every day to get to that point. But if we’re going to be the club we expect to be, we’ve got to improve.”

Dammit, he's right! If they're gonna be the team they expect to be, they've gotta stop not being what they think they didn't expect they are! Are you with me, everybody? Wormer... DEAD! Neidermier... DEAD! LET'S GOoooooo!

Insert Sigh Here.

Here are the current top 15 teams in baseball.   

And here is how last year's regular season ended.

As you can see, the Yankees are right where they should have expected to be. 

We are watching the fifth season of Lost, the second installment of Ghostbusters, the fourth Police Academy, C.H.U.D. III, Tremors 4, The Bad News Bears Visit Japan...  the continuing tribulations of a tomato can well past its sell-by date.

This is the 2021 Yankees: An aging, expensive, wild card team with a mediocre farm system, a time bomb of bloated contracts, and an owner who is only accountable to the media that he, himself, owns. Blaugh.

Can't we get a manager that like spits chewing tobacco and calls his players out?

I recall in bygone ages where young players were taught to swing level, make contact and run hard on any batted ball.
It was so against nature to uppercut your swing that we were not allowed to golf cuz it would mess up our swings.
HA, "take what the defense gives you" died along with the bunt.

Really watching these guys with their under.200 averages is like Little League when you had to face the giant 12yr.0ld and the idea was to try and survive the at-bat. Literally survive.

The Archangel, tensely waiting for the next exciting double digit K game.

Really good one there, so good that I had to quote it! That's it, in a nutshell.

@Platoni, yeah, Booney's in the wrong profession. He should be a career politician. Should run for President one day. He'd win by default because he never antagonizes anyone.

What about *us*? He constantly antagonizes us.

@Rufus, yeah, haha. I meant of course that he's always Mr. Positive Spin. He never blows up (except against umpires a couple of times a year), never explodes in the dugout, never loses his temper with the media, never says anything even remotely mean-spirited or obnoxious. That his stupid decisions, mistakes, and ass-kissing of upper management antagonize us fans, well, that's the cross that we have to carry as NYY fans. Until this guy leaves the Yankee dugout for a stint as U.S. Diplomat to some friendly country like Canada or Great Britain.
