If the Yankees end up losing this thing by one game, I wonder how many will look back to that ugly top of the 9th on April 6th?
It was just the 3rd game of the season – but, a terrible loss. Up 3-2, heading into the 9th, and then a leadoff walk (man, those things kill you every time), two singles, a big A-Rod error, a squib, and another single later, it’s 5 runs in and the game is over.
Sure, there are probably a dozen games this season that the Yankees let get away where it cost them a win. But, for some reason, tonight, this one game is starting to stick out to me.
Funny, many say that A-Rod should be the MVP because of his defense. Others say it should be Mo for his brilliance this season. Yet, this one crushing loss has their fingerprints all over it.
Hopefully, in the next seven days, Mo, Alex, and the gang, will have enough chances and success that it will drive this game way back into the ancient history files.
