******* it !
We had a four run lead coming into the 8th inning and the Red Sox scored FIVE runs in the 8th inning.
And FOUR of those FIVE came AFTER Joe Torre went and brought in Mo.
Two of the runs won’t be charged to him because they were inherited runners…
But for Mo to let FIVE runs cross the plate in less than an inning and surrender a FOUR run lead?
I know this is only one game and it’s early in the season and you can say whatever you want to about it but losing this game is a back breaker as far as I’m concerned for both the Yankees and for Mo.
We could still turn it around and get another come back win, but the damage to the psyche of the Yankees fans will linger for a long time after this game is over.
Especially after that disaster in Oakland last weekend.
Did Mo just have a lack of work coming into this season?
Well, A-Rod‘s hot streak continued and he picked up 4 RBI’s, 3 hits, and 2 BIG home runs…
But if Mo can’t hold it together in the 9th (and in this case the 8th) our favorite New York sports team could be in serious trouble.
This is a game we could have and SHOULD have won.
That’s twice that I’ve typed these same words about a Yankees game in which Mariano gave up a late inning lead.
I don’t know if I’ll even feel like doing a write up after this game is over tonight in Boston.
We should have won this one and then we could have been in a strong position to win the series.
Now I’m just praying we don’t get swept.
What do we do if Mo isn’t on his game ???
******* it !
