Including this loss, since September 11th, the Yankees are painting an interesting picture:
- From September 11th through September 20th, New York went 4-5 playing mostly against the O’s, Jays and M’s.
- Then, from September 21st through September 27th, New York went 5-1 against the Angels and Red Sox.
- And, since September 28th, now, the Yankees are 2-3 while facing the Royals and Rays.
Now, granted, going into September 11th, the Yankees had a 9 game lead in the A.L. East. So, maybe, they decided to autocruise it back at that time – sans the games against L.A. and Boston, just to prove a point – and they’re going to kick it into high-gear again when the post-season starts? I dunno…for sure.
But, I hope that’s the case…and we’ll find out soon enough, won’t we?
