After getting beat up physically and mentally by their hated rivals the Boston Red Sox, the NY Yankees decided that they would not be pushed around by the Cleveland Indians. After Fausto Carmona gave up a bomb to Curtis Granderson, he decided to send a message to the next batter… Mark Teixeira.
Carmona threw a high fastball right at Tex hitting him in the back and sending him to the dirt; being that he was already hit earlier in the week I guess he had enough. Tex got up and let Carmona just how he felt and that led to the benches being cleared. No punches were thrown but at least the Yanks got up off their asses and did something.
Why wait until now to clear the bench?
After the game Girardi talked about being tired of his players getting hit, and all that talk sounds great. Unfortunately the Yankees are still SOFT!!!
And the reason why I am saying they are still soft is because they waited until the Red Soxs left town to open their mouths. Where was all this fight when Boston was hitting Jeter, Rodriguez and Tex? The Yanks wanted no piece of Boston but they were quick to go at the Indians, LOL!!
The past week has shown who the Big Dawgs in the AL East and it’s NOT the NY Yankees, they better get their weight up before Boston runs away with the division.
By the way, Alex Rodriguez hit a homerun in today’s game and then was hit later on in the game. It Looks like teams are flat-out challenging the Yanks, the pitchers for the Yankees better step up and protect their teammates or else there are going to be problems internally with the Yanks!!
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
