Yankees: Stinky start to Subway Series

Subway Series 2008

There is no sugar-coating this one, as the New York Mets flat-out beat the New York Yankees, 9-7 in the first game of the 19th annual Subway Series.

No doubt, this was a bad loss for the Yankees.

Even with the confines of Yankees Stadium being a hitters dream, letting the offensively anemic Mets score nine runs is pitiful.

It makes you wonder if the Yankees could actually be this bad?

It is not fair to chalk up this loss to a bad night even though the Yankees are more nicked up then anybody had realized.

-       CC Sabathia is off to see Dr. James Andrews about his knee. 15-day DL.

-       Sean Kelly hurt back vs. Brewers. DTD

-       Mark Teixeira’s legs are heavy from road trip, but he will play in second game tomorrow.

-       Carlos Beltran hyper extended his elbow in the batting cage in 7th inning vs. Mets. DTD

-       Ichiro Suzuki hurt his back after diving for ball vs. Brewers. DTD

Yes that is a lot of players, but there is no excuse for stinking it up except playing bad baseball.

Still, reality didn’t faze the delusional Yankees fans from tweeting how the Subway Series is the equivalent of World Series games for the Mets, and just another game for the Bronx Bombers.

Did these Yankees fan forget who won when David fought Goliath?

Well, it wasn’t Goliath.

This game was painful enough to watch for Yankees fans that dissecting what could have, should have and would have happened seems unnecessary.

But big props go to Teixeira for pinch-hitting off the bench even if his dead legs turned a double into a single. He gets an A+ for his hot bat.

Oh and I cannot forget my man Yangervis Solarte….who is unstoppable. To bad for Solarte that bad baseball is a team sport, otherwise all he do is win, win, win no matter what.

OK, OK that is enough, as the bottom line here is the Yankees either start to play better and win; or just keep on losing.
