The Yankees lost two out of three games to the Mets in the first Subway Series of the season. The manner in which they’ve played and lost recently, particularly on Sunday, is cause for fan desolation. As The Captain’s Blog reports:
Most of the blame goes on the players, like Jeter and Teixeira whose struggles have limited the offense, but some is also reserved for the manager. Over the Yankees’ 15 game slump, several of the losses have been abetted by very poor lineup construction and game strategy.
I certainly can’t do better than the Captain on the current state of the team, so I suggest you read the rest of what he has to say.
Meanwhile, I owe my son a Frapuccino, thanks to the Yankees. He, of course, is deleriously happy. In a way, I never really lose these Subway Series games.
