They got 3 closers.

As you might have noticed in this series they needed a starter more.

Or maybe you didn't

From the NYT: — As the Yankees trudged off the field in the wee hours of Monday morning, several of them took one last peek across what had become a bandbox of horrors, catching a sight of the Boston Red Sox mobbing Andrew Benintendi near first base.

It was his hit, a ground ball up the middle through a hole in the shifted defense, that delivered the final devastating blow to the Yankees in a weekend full of them. It brought home pinch-runner Tony Renda, whose headlong slide across the plate sealed a 5-4, 10th-inning comeback win that served as an exclamation point on a four-game sweep of the Yankees.

Instead of leaving the field with a modicum of momentum, and perhaps a sense that they were pulling out of an ill-timed funk, the Yankees dropped to nine and one-half games behind the Red Sox in the American League East. But they weren’t ready to admit that they had kissed their hopes of a division title goodbye.

“A tough way, obviously, to end a tough weekend,” Yankees Manager Aaron Boone said. “But we can’t let this define what’s been a great season for us.”


"Bandbox Of Horrors".

Truly.

Indeed, truth, Ut.

I said so at the time.  Media ran with it off some miniscule info.

Harper carrying this club to the playoffs is a nice story.  Hope he gets there.

When at first I learned to speak, I used all my words to fight.  With him and her and  you and me.  Oh, but it's just a waste of time.  Yeah, it's such a waste of time.

heh

'78 was a great season, and a great race, and has become the St. Jude of baseball seasons to some to pray to.

But it was more like a crucible preparing the soul for the real trying times like '86 and '03

fwiw I and most other sportsfans call upon Saint '04 when the night is at its darkest and the task at hand seemingly impossible
