SL, the streak in May gave the team enough breathing room to absorb this sweep, just barely. The Yanks are still only 5 games out of first place on June 3.
Don’t get me wrong, I was depressed last night. But if they don’t forget this series, it will be a rough weekend in Minnesota.
I didn’t even watch the game. I had other things to do and didn’t go out of my way to see the game. A Yankees game where the upside is taking 1 of 3 from the Royals? Good Lord.
At least NY doesn’t have to face Johan Santana this weekend. Still, Brown pitching on turf could be interesting.
If the Yankees play as ugly against Minny as they did v. the Royals, something is going to happen – former big 18-game streak or not.
you have to keep it in persepctive
bottom line- as poorly as they have played, only 5 games out on 6/3
A division winner with 89 wins is still a drivision winner.
I know it’s *just* 5 games in the L column.
That’s not the issue for me.
The issue is losing games that they should be winning.
That’s never a good sign. It’s a sign that something is wrong.
Hey, c’mon guys, have we mentioned that A-rod won AL player o’ the month for May??
I love the internet, where you can say things like that….If you do it in person, people tend to throw things at you…
Mr. May Jr.?
I hope not………..
Steve- noone is disputing the current state of the Yankees, something is obviously wrong.
But your picture implies that the Yankees are dead.
my point is that until they have been mathematically eliminated, there is always hope. That’s why they play the games….or maybe I am just a disillusioned fan who thinks we can’t miss the playoffs.
To quote Rocky Balboa “I didn’t hear no bell….one more round”
And there ya go, Phil (:
I’m not going to get worried until late sept, or the Yanks are mathematically eliminated
For now, on the Miracle Max scale, they’re *mostly dead* IMHO.
If they’re not dead they’re in a freakin’ coma. This is depressing. That was the most predictable 1-2-3 9th inning ever.
I’m going to get drunk now.
Please do not compare the 1978 Yanks with this collection of paycheck collectors. Didn’t the 2004 ALCS tell you all you need know about this group? No heart, no soul. Bosox cleat marks all over ‘em.
