Now other than being embarrassed about not scoring a single run, the Yankees are practically handing the AL East to the Orioles, who didn’t even play yesterday.
But instead the players tip their caps to Blue Jays righty Brandon Morrow. I guess this shouldn’t be that surprising considering the Yankees had a .223 batting average against him coming into the game, and they were without an injured Mark Teixeira (.286 BA, 3 2B, 1 HR, 5, RBI, 2 BB in 21 AB) who had the most success against him.
Still it is time to focus on today, and that actuality is that there are six-games left in the 2012 regular season, so time’s a wasting. Basically, the Yankees need to win now.
Unless they want the season to end next Wednesday, I mean can you even fathom no more baseball in the Bronx could be our reality in just five-days?
There is really not much more to say about this situation except:
“Choking is about thinking too much. Panic is about thinking too little. Choking is about loss of instinct. Panic is reversion to instinct. They may look the same, but they are worlds apart.” – Malcolm Gladwell, What the Dog Saw.
Do you think the Yankees are choking or panicking right now?
It would seem the Yankees are doing a little bit of both right now because as a fan I can promise you that I am.
The Yankees play three more games in Toronto, which means that half of their dreams, depend on winning on that damn artificial turf field up in Canada.
