Those sad faces from the postseason reminded me of the sad faces from last night….and the night before….and the night before that. The fact is, it must not be fun to be the Yankees these days despite how upbeat Girardi says they are.
Also in the “it must not be fun to be” department has to be Cano. He’s hitting. He’s the only real star on the team. There has to be pressure on him to try and do it all. Gardner’s hitting too, but it’s not the same. Cano is the one negotiating the big contract, the All-Star, the home run derby guy. I’m betting it was more fun when Jeter and A-Rod were around to pick up the slack. Actually, it was probably more fun when he was young player and he and Melky were always dancing and clowning.
Will the Yanks drop below the Blue Jays and sink into last place? Could happen. But the world won’t end if it does. It’ll just mean this wasn’t our year and the injuries were too great to overcome. I love this team for trying no matter what. Girardi’s right: they really do keep fighting.
