There isn’t a lot a good things to say about this game, or about the way the Yankees are playing right now.
They gave up 10 runs in the third inning on their way to getting trounced, 15-4. It was their ninth loss in their last ten games. From 21-12 to the current 22-21 record. From 4 games up to 1 1/2 back (still in 2nd place in the AL East).
They hope to stop the free fall tonight. I’ll be at the game, and before the game the Yanks will be honoring Bernie Williams and retiring his #51.
The Yanks hurt themselves with some poor fielding (Didi and Beltran) in that third inning, and things just snowballed. I had, and still have, a lot of reservations about CC. I think the Yanks may be paying big time for a few years for nothing. I really think he is done. They never should have extended his original deal.
