The Red Sox keep reminding the Yanks that the Baby Bombers are not yet ready for Prime Time. The bullpen rightfully gets the blame for blowing a 6-3 lead but watching it live, I got the sense that the Yanks blew it when Aaron Judge whiffed with the bases loaded and just one out in the 7th. He had a couple of good pitches to hit, put good swings on them, but fouled the balls off instead of putting them in play. Because that’s the way it goes and that’s the way it’s been going for Judge, who has now whiffed in more consecutive games than just about anybody ever.
Then the pen was horseshit, too—Aroldis Chapman looked especially mortal again.
9-6 was the sorry-ass final.
Tonight gives Chris Sale, aka Dr. Doom.
Yanks have their work cut out for them. Let’s see what they got.
Never mind the pressure:
Let’s Go Yank-ees!
