    With this loss, the Yankees are now 9 games back of the Red Sox, in the loss column, in the chase for the Wildcard – with just 21 games left to their season.

    At this stage, I think even the members of the Pinstriped Pollyanna Fanboy Association (who usually live down by that river – the Denial) would have to admit that this Yankees team now has zero chance at the post-season.

    But, you know what? This evening/early morning could have been a lot worse. How ’bout that? Yup. Guess what sweeties? With this one, you get a consolation prize. Hey, in tough times, you take what you can get. And, you get what you get and you don’t get upset.

      P.S. – don’t look now, but, the Toronto Blue Jays are just about ready to pass the Yankees in the standings too.

      they might as well lose every game from here on out to protect their 1st round draft pick; they’re only about 4 or 5 games from that happening

      I’d like it if they at least won Mussina’s starts and get him to 20.
