Ah, the final nail.
So, the Yankees season ends at 141 games.
This one reminds me so much of Game 6 of the 2004 ALCS. Curt Schilling comes back from the grave, again, and stuffs it to the Yankees in their own park. Watch, tomorrow will be just like Game 7 of the ALCS last year. Boston will be partying by the 5th inning.
Actually, this game is the story of the Yankees 2005 season. They never win the games that they are supposed to win, according to all the stats coming into the game – instead, they tank it, and they tank it as bad as they possibly can tank it.
In the spectrum of measuring baseball teams, there are:
*Almost good teams.
*Below average teams.
The 2005 Yankees, in the end, are not a great team, or a strong team, or a good team. On a daily basis, they fall somewhere between “almost good” and “terrible.”
Today, as this is penned, it’s the 9th inning of the game today, and, I can safely say that they were a terrible team this afternoon – at a time where they could least afford it.
Too bad that I no longer follow the NFL. It’s perfect timing, today, to close the Yankees season and start following something else. Thousands are probably planning a switch at this moment.
