We’ve seen this before, man. Decent starting pitching, good job from an overworked bullpen, little to no offense. The home run Brian Roberts hit in the 9th inning was good enough to send the game to extras but served only to prolong the inevitable as the Yanks lost, 4-3 to the Rays.
The Yankees offense has been horseshit, the injuries to the starting pitchers can’t be patched-up too much longer. How long can the bullpen hold themselves together?
Yeah, the rest of the league–both leagues, really–are in a similar boat and that gives us perspective. But since when is being a fan about being rational?
I don’t think the team is horseshit. I don’t get the feeling that they aren’t trying. Still, how about shaking things up? Time for Brian Cashman to give Girardi and Company some help.
