Game 42 : The way this team has suddenly lost the plot, it’s simply amazing two games were somehow won in this stretch of stench. Where do you start dissecting tonight’s train wreck? The 10-9 loss to the Texas Rangers to open a six-game home stand was a clusterfu*k. Forget the final score. This was ugly. After a road trip from Hell, the Yankees needed a win and needed one bad. All we got was bad.
Yeah, we’ve heard how what a good sign this is how the club battled back from a 0-7 deficit. How so-and-so’s at-bat was encouraging for the days ahead. Horse-spit. This club is all of the sudden adrift, and back to the same old story…
Here’s the box score, full recap, and video highlights.
Rangers 10, Yankees 9
