So the Yankees return home with their tails between their legs, having lost four of six to two teams they should readily handle, in a stretch vital to their post-season hopes.
The Yankees' offense was completely embarrassed on this trip, and their hole is deeper and darker than ever as they prepare for a brutal stretch of schedule against the Mets, Red Sox and all. This team truly might be out of the division race for good by the time Roger Clemens makes his debut. Think Rocket's regretting his decision already?
This team-wide slump is inexplicable and inexcusable. Hope is fading, and like Jack Bauer says, WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME! It's getting late early out there. Papa don't preach, the Yankees are in trouble deep.
Perhaps this team's problems are deeper and more systemic than any of us realized. I have begun to truly doubt this group of players, this manager and this front office. Looks like the post-season streak ends in 2007.
