Good morning, Sports fans! Davey Mac is back with another Sports Report for ya! And I’ll admit…I am PISSED!
The Yankees have hit rock bottom as the Yanks suffered the worst loss of the season yesterday…they lose to the Miami Marlins 8 to 7 after heading into the bottom of the 9th with a 7 to 3 lead.
First, the Yanks blew another game where Gerrit Cole should have won…Cole threw six innings giving up just two runs while striking out six. But the bullpen was a disaster…namely Clay Holmes…who gave up four runs in the ninth to receive the loss. The Yankees end up losing two outta three to the Marlins…and are now 60 and 58. It’s over. The Yankees need to fire general manager Brian Cashman and NOW.

I don’t know what Hal Steinbrenner is waiting for. Does he have ANY of the passion that his father George had? Does he care about winning at ALL? Does this fancy-haircut stooge even want to own the damn team?!

Cashman made NO MOVES at the trade deadline…he’s been terrible with free agency…his trades don’t pan out (think Donaldson, Gallo, Hicks, etc.)…and he is just long-in-the-tooth as a G.M. Cashman has been there for 25 years…enough is enough. It’s time for NEW BLOOD. Get some guts, Hal, and fire Cashman at once! The fans demand it! I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents!
