Gee, things sure are different when you don’t get to face Warner Madrigal, huh?
Actually, I was spared viewing this one. My family and I attended a block party (held on a street where one of our friends lives) to watch a big fireworks show.
At one point, during the party, I asked one of our friends to check the score on his blackberry. At that time, he shared it was 6-zip, Boston, in the fifth, and that the Yankees only had two hits. Ouch.
The party ended at 10 pm, on the dot, and that was perfect timing – in terms of getting to the radio just in time for the start of the post-game wrap-up. Suzyn Waldman and John Sterling had some interesting things to say about this one. Sterling shared that the Yankees were never in this game. Waldman called the Yankees lackluster performance embarrassing.
But, most importantly, Waldman said that there would be no post-game clubhouse report because (Yankees Media Relations Boss) Jason Zillo said that the clubhouse was closed – and that it would be closed for a while.
Waldman and Sterling suggest that the entire team was getting a new one ripped over their performance in this game.
Hey – and I know that many say I’m beating a dead horse with this one, but, it’s true – the Yankees, to date, now, this season are 33-41 when not playing teams named the Mariners, Astros and Padres. Point blank, this team is not good.
And, in my opinion, if they manage to lose, say, four of their next five games, then, maybe it’s time to blow the thing up…start selling your pending free agents…and start working towards next season.
