With this loss, the Yankees are still “Oh’fer Sox” this season – now being 0-8 against Boston and 0-3 against Chicago.
Three bases loaded walks allowed? Posada tagging a runner with his mitt and not the ball? Say, weren’t those plays out of the 1919 White Sox World Series playbook?
In the end, when you get your fanny kicked, 14-4, I guess it really doesn’t matter…in terms of looking at individual misplays, etc. As a team, the Yankees were just flat out horse-bleep today. And, New York has now lost five of their last eight…and the losses have been ugly. The Yankees are not playing like a team that’s on a mission to win their division. More so, they’re playing as if they are devoid of passion. And, that’s the really bad news here.
Christian Friedrich Hebbel was right when he said “Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion.” The Yankees need to learn this – and fast. Hopefully, General Joe will rip them a new one after this game and maybe it will sink in…
…if not, this season could be over by August 24th.
