Yankees Now Under .500 In Last Place And Still Not A Word From Hal Steinbrenner & Brian Cashman
Good morning, gang! It’s your rabid appreciator of the athletics here, Davey Mac, back with another Sports Report for ya! Today–NBA gets new Hall Of Famers! U.S. Women’s Soccer makes a change! And more! But first!
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s official: the New York Yankees are done for the season. The Yanks lost to the Braves last night and now fall under .500 while remaining in last place in the A.L. East.
It is the first time the Yankees have had a losing record at least 120 games into a season since Sept. 5, 1995. And yet…where is Hal Steinbrenner?! Why have we heard NOTHING from the team’s owner?!
The Yankees came into the game with a .232 batting average…ahead of only the lowly Oakland A’s who are hitting .222. They are FOURTEEN games out of first place in the division…and 6.5 games behind the Blue Jays for the third and final American League Wild Card spot.
Quite frankly, general manager Brian Cashman has done an abysmal job at putting this roster together…he deserves blame, too.
Long gone are the days of George, I guess. Sure, the old man wasn’t perfect…and he could make some irrational decisions…but at least he CARED. He cared about winning, about the fans, about the Yankee legacy. Hal does not.
We may be headed to the Dark Times, Yankee fans. Unless they do something drastic…and here’s my idea. Bring in Derek Jeter…make him Team President.
He hires a G.M. and they bring on Jorge Posada as manager. Clean house and bring in Champions to do it. I’m Davey Mac…that’s my two cents! Now on to the Scoreboard!
Let’s start with baseball. Where they were shut out (again) by the Braves last night…two to nothing…as the Yanks failed to get a run for the second straight game.
The Yankees, who only got four hits in the game, have now dropped to 60 and 61…they are officially UNDER .500 and in last place in the A.L. East by a lot at this point. Awful.
The Mets took down the Pirates…8 to 3. Met outfielder D.J. Stewart hit two home runs in the game…as the Mets improve to 55 and 66.
The Phillies beat the Blue Jays…9 to 4. Bryce Harper slugged two home runs in the game for the Phillies…who are now 66 and 55.
Football. The Jets held a joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday…and despite six sacks and numerous pressures…Aaron Rodgers says his concern for the offensive line is low. Rodgers acknowledges that the O-line hasn’t played that well in camp…but everyone will be ready for the season.
Basketball. Dwayne Wade, Greg Popovich, Dirk Nowitzki, Tony Parker, and Pau Gasol are among those who were recently inducted into the NBA Hall Of Fame. Congrats to those guys!
Soccer. Vlatko Andonovski has stepped down as manager of the U.S. women’s national team after the Americans were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Sweden. It was the earliest exit for the U.S. Women in World Cup history…after the Americans were favored to win their third straight Cup. England plays Spain in the World Cup Final on Sunday.
