The New York Yankees had an opportunity to extend their AL East lead to two games last night at the Rogers Centre, but instead they didn’t just lose they got shutout by the Blue Jays 6-0.
Now other than being embarrassed about not scoring a single run, the Yankees are practically handing the AL East to the Orioles, who didn’t even play yesterday.
But instead the players tip their caps to Blue Jays righty Brandon Morrow. I guess this shouldn’t be that surprising considering the Yankees had a .223 batting average against him coming into the game, and they were without an injured Mark Teixeira (.286 BA, 3 2B, 1 HR, 5, RBI, 2 BB in 21 AB) who had the most success against him.
Still it is time to focus on today, and that actuality is that there are six-games left in the 2012 regular season, so time’s a wasting. Basically, the Yankees need to win now.
Unless they want the season to end next Wednesday, I mean can you even fathom no more baseball in the Bronx could be our reality in just five-days? (more…)
