Before the season, into the start of the season, this Yankee Team was one big Question Mark. And now that we are coming to the close of the regular season, the Question Mark has been answered. Yes there were some great times and great wins, but we have to be honest, this team has been too inconsistent and does not look like a playoff ready team. Yankees did not go all out to fill important spots in the line up, and left the most important positions in baseball, the middle infield without a major league caliber 2nd baseman. They let one of the best in the game go, and did nothing to replace him. Just tried to fill in the hole at 2nd base.

When there were quality pitchers available, the Yankees did not aggressively go after any of them. Bottom line this would never have happen if the Boss was still running the show, when he put his money back on the field of play. And it's time to part ways with Cashman.

I always said, this Yankee Organization has given we Yankee Fans, great Glory Days,  and 27 World Championships, and the best tradition in baseball. So we have lot to be proud of. But I am  not going to give this present team a pass because of the past. These past 3 games against Toronto we looked like a minor league team playing an exhibition game against and All Star Team, and to me that's not acceptable, and should not be acceptable to the Yankee Organization and the Management and the GM and Mgr. I haven't heard anything this entire season, of anyone calling for a close door meeting by, the players, Coaching Staff, the GM, the Mgr., or the Owners. All I have ever heard is Girardi and Cashman at press conference, sugar coating with all these BS Talking Points. Heads need to roll, and someone had to take charge of this team, because they are becoming embarrassing.

When is the last time you ever saw fans from another team, take over Yankee Stadium, and make the Yankees look like a laughing stock in baseball. And to make things worst, they were Canadian Fans.

The Yankees seem beaten down. Time for a pep talk. Girardi should play this clip in the Yankees Clubhouse before today's game.

That team went out every game knowing they would win. This team could use a little magic!

The reasons why the Yanks did not go after top pitchers in the off-season are well known: they didn't want to spend the money.


The reasons why they didn't go after any of the top pitchers at the trade deadline are also well known: they didn't want to spend the top prospects in their system, or tear their bullpen in half.


Both of these stands were approved by Hal Steinbrenner in public declarations. 


So maybe Hal will fire himself.


But he won't. They are trying to rebuild along lines laid down by the team's owner and managing partner.

That doesn't mean they are/were right, nor does it mean they should have people making apologies for their failures.

More appropriate question - where is the talent?


They are getting their a**es handed to them by a team with talent.
