Chicago – The Yankees looked old and tired Friday night.
Remember when we used to say that all the time about the club, even though it sucked its way to championships or at least division titles?
The big sell-off of 2016, which started the baby bombers, made way for a new, exciting time that didn't even reveal any division titles – let alone championships. And Friday night at the Guaranteed Course Field (worst park name ever), the resplendent white socks made the Yankees look like the gruesome old men once more.
The latest score showed in 10-2 White Socks, the Yankees & # 39; third straight loss and eight in 11 games as they fell a half-game behind the rays (who tampered with the angels, 9-4) in the US League East.
"We just haven't played well," Board Gardner said. "Defensively, we have made some mistakes. Offensively, [we] Unable to expand as we need, knit good bi-bats together. I'm just disappointed. "
The pitching is not large, or, and Friday's matchup was especially symbolic: CC Sabathia, in its third attempt at Nabing's career win number 250, fell sharply to raising White Sounds stewed Lucas Giolito, who surrendered Luk Voit's solo home. In the first, insert the Yankees into the seventh. Sabathia, meanwhile, took 1-0 lead and delivered it back into a four-run, nine-dough bottom of the first.
The problem, explained by Sabathia, was a cutter that was sick, and it was a great credit to it that it did four things, giving up six runs (five earned) and ensuring the relief corps would not be destroyed. In anticipation of Saturday's Bulletin game (weather permitting).
Sabathia was not the only problem, but as he did not round the headache in a starting rotation, which suddenly forgot in action. Gio Urshela and Glorious Torres each committed an error, each leading to a run. Even after getting out of the game with no outs in the seventh, Yankees could only run one more run, going 1-for-9 with runners scoring position against the white sockets reliever.
The baby bombers have no match for the cherubic chisoks. In addition to Giolito, the White Socks have come back from the Adam Etonon rescuer Elvo Jimmons, who slammed a couple of homers across the town of The Cubs at 2017 Jose Quintana.
The highest display of Yankees energy came in the third when Giolito's first voice waved (after Homer's two innings were high and high).
"There's a bunch of BS," he said afterwards.
Since the Yankees are not really old with the exception of Sabathia and his fellow de facto coy captain Gardner, it is great to keep wondering whether the Yankees, who have moved so many mountains to get an injury epidemic, feel the delay of that effort.
"No, it's just a long time," Sabathia said. "We have a bad 10 days. This team is very capable of getting back to where we are. I think we'll be fine."
Optimists can bank on the near-death of Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton from the injured list, assuming any setbacks happen, with at hemhemoths currently rehabilitating for Triple-A Scranton / Wilkes Barre at Durham. This team requires a variety of infusions, and if trade changes in trade rules are not expanding the set of transactions, as is the case with the early reading, then more must do the trick. Especially more of the elite likes of judge and stanton.
"It's perfectly you're going to patch," said Aaron Boone. "We have to play better, there's no question about it. You can't be phased by the ups and downs that come inevitably with time and we won't be."
It's time for Yankees to get off the mat. To keep looking old and rickety and fight once more. To keep the white soaks, impressive yet raw, look like the 1927 Yankees.
