Man, I really thought that Mark Teixeira was going to tie this one in the bottom of the 10th. No dice.
And, I was really hoping that Hideki Matsui would pick up Teixeira in that frame. No dice, again.
With this loss, the Yankees have now dropped 8 of their last 13 games. That’s bad. But, consider this…
Thirteen games ago, the Yankees got lucky in beating the A’s – when Oakland ran out of pitchers and
Jose Veras pitched out of character, meaning “well,” for New York.
And, the Yankees were lucky to beat the Angels twice, when Los Angeles was in New York, because
the Halos pen handed the Bombers both those games.
There’s a very good chance, based on the way New York has played, that they could (should?) be in a spot where
they’ve lost 11 of their last 13 games. As such, is it a reach to say that Yankees have been a bunch of sad sacks the last two weeks?
And, I won’t even mention that they were just barely a .500 team before that.
I just did.
