• Yanks Trying To Avoid A Repeat Of 1942

    Posted by on October 20th, 2010 · Comments (4)

    Noticed this being tweeted about on Twitter: The Yankees haven’t lost three straight home games in same post-season since 1942.

    We sort of mentioned that here the other day. Man, that last loss in ’42 must of been a stinger. Whitey Kurowski, huh?

      My father, who was a highschool senior at the time, said the 1942 World Series was the biggest upset he had ever known. Yankees fans he knew (Dad was a Giants guy) were walking around dazed and confused for sometime thereafter.

      My dad was six in 1942. So, he was a bit young for that one. But, he was 24 in 1960. And, he often talks about how that one hurt. It’s sort of how 2001 and 2004 sit with me…closely followed by 1995.

      I’d bet it happens tonight. I don’t see Sabathia stopping the Rangers at this point and I sure as hell don’t see this atrocious offense hitting CJ Wilson after letting fatty Hunter off the hook last night.

      More on this – the Yanks are now on a three-game postseason losing streak. The last time that happened was in 2006-07, when they lost five in a row — three straight AL Division Series games to Detroit in 2006 and then Games 1 and 2 of an ALDS to Cleveland in 2007.

      The last time they lost a postseason series at home was in 2007, losing Game 4 to Cleveland.

      If the Rangers win Game 5 at Yankee Stadium, it would be the first time that the Yankees lost three straight home games in the same postseason series since Games 3-5 of the 1942 World Series against St. Louis.
