Yankees lose! Theeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Yankees looooooooooooooooose!
Whenever those Bronx bitches lose, it's literally a cause of celebration and rejoicement for the rest of the league. They have this big bad roster. Million dollar bats. The highest paid pitcher in all of baseball. The second highest paid roster in all of baseball. A GM who's been there for over 20 years. And, you play in arguably the biggest market in the world.
And, what has it got you so far? Absolutely nothing.
I wrote about this earlier in the year. Twice in fact. That, Aaron Boone could lose his job because he can't get his team to have a winning mindset and, that Hal Steinbrenner really wants to win, he needs to clean house.
What ended up happening? They Yankees lost and they still don't have that winning mindset. So much so that their million dollar arm lasted only six outs and seemed to quit on his team. No, that part may actually be true.
I wonder if Cole wishes he had stayed in Houston. I bet he wishes more that the league didn't ban spider tack.
The Yankees season is over and it's back to the drawing board. And, they have a lot to figure out. According to Yankees Manager, for now, Aaron Boone, the league has closed the gap on the Yankees.
He mentions specifically the Red Sox, Astros, Rays and Blue Jays as teams that have closed the gap. Really, its much more than that across the league.
Excuse me Mr. soon to be former Yankees manager Aaron Boone. Those teams haven't closed the gap on you. They've completely blown by you while your team has stayed stuck in their ways for over a decade. The Yankees every year think they can throw money at the biggest names in free agency and that will bring the titles. On paper, it should. But, the league doesn't work like that. Hell, ask the Padres how that worked for them this season.
The gap is so big now but, it's the Yankees who are on the wrong side of it. And now, the season is over. Boone will probably be fired. GM Brian Cashman shouldn't be far behind. But, that's logical thinking. The Yankees are usually anything but logical, at least in this century. Time will tell what will happen.
In the meantime, the Bronx and Manhattan will cry. But, if they stop for a second and listen closely, they can hear the rest of America celebrating in unison. F*** the Yankees.
