Yankees first baseman Mark Teixeira went 3-5, going deep twice from each side of the plate. Tex hit his 20th homer on the season batting right in the first inning and in the sixth he hit a bomb from the left side for #21.
The Yankees are on a role winning five of their last six games, but what other choice did they really have following the abomination against the Red Sox.
I cannot speak for all Yankee fans, but I am still reeling in fury over the 1-8 record against Boston.
Since I am not a player, I don’t have to adopt the philosophy that when a game ends you have to leave it on the field and get ready for tomorrow.
My guess would be the Yankee players are struggling to apply this to Boston or at least they shouldn’t be able too because it was that pathetic.
Reminding myself that this same scenario played out in 2009, when the Yankees were 0-9 vs. Boston at the All-Star break. This works for about ten minutes, until I recall that I was pissed off back then too.
The Yankees have a chance to sweep this series on Thursday afternoon, which might stop ESPN from throwing the Rangers another bone this season excusing why they are under-performing.
Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz are healthy again, so maybe it’s finally time to get off the Texas bandwagon. I am still standing firmly behind my anti-Rangers campaign of being an overrated ball-club.
For the Yankees the bottom-line is there is only one way, one thing that needs to be done in order for the team and fans to feel right again….and we all know what that is.
