“A Chamber of Horrors for the Yankees”
That’s what John Sterling called Fenway last night.
The Yanks’ 4-3 loss to the Red Sox was a horror show of the most painful sort, and even though it’s dreary and soggy in New York right now, I’m feeling upbeat about not having to look at Fenway again for awhile.
Just who were the monsters in the chamber of horrors?
Let’s start with Damon, who inexplicably dropped Ortiz’s routine fly ball
and turned into him.
And then there was Nick Swisher, who couldn’t seem to run the bases like a major leaguer
and played the role of Frankenstein’s brother.
After a brilliant, valiant outing by CC, exactly what the Yankees needed, Joe turned the ball over to Aceves, who quickly mangled the situation
and served as Frankenstein’s other brother (seen above and below with Jeter and A-Rod).
Earlier, Melky struck out looking (yeah, he argued, but still) with two men on, and sucked all the life of the proceedings
reminding me of him.
And let’s not forget Brett the Jet who may have had success with his speed
but reminded me of this guy with that ridiculous throw on Lowell’s fly ball in the crucial eighth.
Oh, well. On to the Subway Series. As I said, at least I won’t have to look at this for a few months.
