Despite winning the first two games against the lowly Twins at the Stadium this weekend, the Yankees are slowly sinking to the bottom of the ocean, thanks to a piss-poor showing today. What an ugly loss. Wasn’t Evo supposed to be getting good? Like really good? He hasn’t been good for awhile now, and our offense – well – it’s not even worth talking about.
What the Yankees have is a very effective one-two-three in the bullpen and that’s about it.
So here it is: my suggestion to Cashman. Unload A-Rod and Teixeira. Somehow. Just give them to another team. Have a garage sale. And while you’re at it, throw Chase Headley into the pile of merchandise. Brian McCann too. Unload the salaries or eat the salaries or whatever you have to do to clean house and be able to start fresh with new starting pitchers and maybe even a power hitter or two that’s under the age of 30.
In the meantime, the season is fading away and so is my interest in the Yankees. It’s hard to root for a team that loses to the Twins in such a wimpy fashion.
On a brighter note, Wimbledon starts tomorrow so I’ll be turning my attention to tennis where the best players rise to the top and compete like champions. Right now, the Yankees are as far from champions as you can get.
(I know. This post was harsh. Forgive me.)
