Hey Yankee fans, take a page from Alex Rodriguez’s book of “Zen Baseball”:
“It’s a long season. Two good teams. We definitely took a punch this weekend, but good teams punch back.”
The Yankees just went through a stretch of nine series where they were 8-0-1 (the one split being the four-gamer in Texas a couple of weeks ago) before getting swept by Toronto. They were playing well and now they’re in a stretch where they’re not playing so well. It happens. It’s called baseball.
And I get it, Toronto is on their heels, they can lose the division and Toronto may never lose again, but let’s get some facts right out of the way:
- It’s still only August 10.
- The fight for the division is far from over.
- The Blue Jays are a good team.
- And guess what? So are the Yankees.
Yes, I realize the Blue Jays are leading in the season series. Good for them. It’s been a while since they’ve had a team doing this well, and in turn, getting their fans legitimately excited for the possibility of playoff baseball.…
