It’s Friday, baby!   I never thought we’d get here.   Ever have one of those weeks that seems to take forever?   That’s been the case with me this week.

I don’t know if it’s that I’m ridiculously psyched for the NFL games this weekend or what…but I’ve been desperately waiting for Saturday and Sunday to arrive!

Maybe that’s because the New York Yankees are slowly killing my soul.   As a Yankees fan for my entire life…I have to say…this has been one of the weirdest and most frustrating seasons in recent memory.

I mean, Aaron Judge is totally awesome.   Judge is sitting on 55 home runs with a legitimate chance to break Rogers Maris’ record of 61 home runs in a single season (Yankee record and American League record).

But where is Judge’s support?   Last night, a stark reminder of what could have been popped up in the Yanks game.  With the game tied at 2 to 2 in the 8th inning…All Star shortstop Carlo Correa stepped to the plate and slugged a tie-breaking and ultimate game-winning home run.

And once again we Yankee fans were reminded of Yankee General Manager Brian Cashman’s several failures as GM.   Correa was one of the big-time, multi-talented, free agent shortstops who was available in the offseason.

And Yankees fans were clamoring for a  shortstop.   Correa, Trevor Story, Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, Javier Baez could have all been signed.   Cashman decided to go the cheap route and go with Isiah Kiner-Falefa.   And while IKF has been a solid player…he is not the superstar that those aforementioned players are.

That loss last night was on Brian Cashman.   As is the failures of this season.   And that’s my two cents.
