This team simply isn't good enough; doesn't have enough good players.


The Sox do. That's the difference.

The difference is Girardi is an idiot and the offense should have put up 10 tonight.   That game was like game 5 of the alcs in 04.  Over managed, and pitiful job with risp.  F this team .

Here's the thing Yankees should understand...when it comes to the Red Sox we fans take no prisoners.  Losing to them in this fashion strikes deep in our hearts. The win was in our grasp, I could taste it. It's nothing short of devastation that Betances allow those bums to take the wind from our sails.  


Understandably, it's his 3rd consecutive game. Yet we fans expect nothing short of a win, especially when given reasonable run support to work with...man up and deliver the goods.,,,no excuses Gallery Photo


I don't want to hear anything like Betances tipping his hat.  They weren't great, you just stink....

Did you not see fail after fail in the middle and late innings? That's what not good enough means. 


They were forced to go to their closer for the 3rd straight day because of that. And that's not good enough.

From Mike Axisa's game recap at River Ave Blues:


"In case you weren’t keeping track through all of that, the Yankees went 0-for-5 with five strikeouts with a runner on third and less than two outs. Yup. As miserable as the Betances meltdown was, he never should have had to pitch anyway. The offense came up mighty small several times — Espada sure didn’t help matters — and managed to turn 17 baserunners in Fenway Park into only five runs. Gross. What a traveshamockery."


...and further on down in the recap:


" The Yankees aren’t out of it — they still have four games left with the Jays, after all — but losses like this remind you this team just isn’t good enough. Hasn’t been all year."


And from Kevin Kernan's post-game column in the Post...the Title:


Cold, hard truth: These Yankees just aren’t good enough


"The Baby Bombers have battled. They have given fans something to cheer about but, in the end, there is not the same kind of talent on this team as on the Red Sox.


That’s the cold, hard truth. That’s Red Sox reality."



When I say they're not good enough, what I mean is:


They're not good enough.
