So, the Yankees have now lost six games in a row. This is Joe Girardi’s first six-game losing streak since taking over as New York’s manager in 2008. And, it’s the 27th time since 1973 that the Yankees had a six-game losing streak or greater. Here are the others:

The big question here, at this point, is “When will it end?”
Personally, it can’t end soon enough for me. Each night, my 7-year old son goes to bed listening to the Yankees game on the radio as he falls asleep. And, in the month of May, including tomorrow, the are now ten mornings where I had to let him know at breakfast that the Yankees lost the game. That’s ten times in seventeen days (covering just 15 games).
Just for once, I’d like to give the little guy some good news rather than have to tell him that they lost, again.
