F-A-Natic Fridays – Are the Yankees SOFT???
As much I hate the Yankees I never thought I would ever think of the Yankees being SOFT, but after watching Boston come into Yankee stadium and sweep the series I think it’s time to starting questioning the mental makeup of this Yankee team.
Not only did Boston sweep the series but they also physically inflected some pain on the Yankees. Boston pitching managed to hit 4 Yankees, including knocking Mark Teixeira from the game after getting plunked on the knee.
So how did the Yankees respond?
As I already mentioned the Yankees got swept at HOME by their hated rivals; so obviously Tex being hit didn’t ignite anything in them. Then on top of that David Ortiz went off on them AGAIN and blasted a couple of homeruns. One of the homeruns Big Papi apparently offended Yankee manager Joe Girardi with the flip of the bat; so I guess this would be the time when the Yankees would definitely retaliate. Girardi is an old school type of guy, so you have to believe something would happen, right???
So the Yankees did FINALLY respond as C.C. Sabathia hit Ortiz in the leg with a 97 mph fastball. Of course that only happened AFTER Josh Beckett hit Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez.
So the Yankees finally hit David Ortiz after 161 career games and 34 career homeruns against them; AND after the Red Soxs hit 3 of their star players. I guess that seems like a fair trade-off, LOL!!!
Yeah, the Yankees are soft as baby shit!!!
There is no way the Yankee teams that had Paul O’Neil and Roger Clemens would have ever let that go down. Without a doubt there would have been some kind of bench clearing brawl…
Where is Don Zimmer? His old ass has more fight than these NY Yankees!!
No wonder the Yankees were swept at home, they have no heart. I will even say that my NY Mets have more heart than these pretty boy Yankees; The Mets have 2 superstars down and they show more fight.
After Boston’s slow start the Yankees had the chance to bury their hated rivals; instead they let them stay in the race and now Boston is in 1st place. Even though it is still early in the season (really not), I am not sure the Yankees have what it takes to challenge the Red Sox. Of course the Yankees have proven me and others a lot smarter than me wrong before….
The only difference is those Yankees teams of past seasons had HEART!!
