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.
