We have the Posada thing. And, we have the team losing 8 of their last 11. And, they’re set up to be swept by Boston at home. And, we have so many players on the team not playing up to their reps and/or salary – albeit that not all are sucking and are playing semi-decent. (See: Teixeira, Mark – who should be hitting more like Votto or Adrian Gonzalez than he is now.) There’s a lot of things that are just flat-out messed up in Yankeeland right now. You could say that they seem less organized than a dung fight at the monkey cage in the zoo.
When was the last time, during the regular season, that we saw this much out of control with the Yankees? Yes, the 2006 ALDS was a low-point. But, that was October. When was the last time we saw this outside of the post-season spot-light? 1989 or 1990? It does seem like a long time…unless I’m just forgetting something more recent.
Who is to blame for all this? Cashman? Girardi? Both? Neither? What do you think?
