I understand why Sergio (The Human White Flag) Mitre was on the mound for the final frame of last night’s beatdown by the Texas Rangers, but really – is he the best bad pitcher the Bronx Bunglers have?
[Your bitter recriminations – or victory dances – go here.]
This ALCS has magnified every weakness the big ballclub dragged through the regular season: spotty pitching, abysmal run production, squandered opportunities. After Game 1 it looked like the Yankees might have the mojo to take this series. Now it’s clear all they have is nojo.
[It’s never a good sign when you start each inning asking “What fresh hell is this?” (With apologies to Dorothy Parker.)]
Not so fast. Having been done in 2004, the Yankees still have a shot at being the doer this year.
One C.C. of Sabathia!
