Poor Brett wrapping his solid career being forced to play way too many innings and striking out three times.

It's been real, Brett. I'll always remember those long at bats.

Well, friends. I'll sign off now. I apologize for my belligerence and anger this year (all years, really). It's been a ride, but not exactly fun.

I look forward to the offseason thread and the potential to fix some of this mess.

Give credit to Boston. They pitched, hit, fielded and ran the bases better than the Yankees. Eovaldi outclassed Cole. Better team won.

Congrats to Sox fans! Go Rays!

A truly depressing season, hopefully Boone is gone tomorrow.

100%. You only need to be better for one night with this system to get bragging rights for 4 months.
True but winning championships, or even a lame play-in contest, involves playing your best, raising your game, playing smart. I had a bad feeling when Rizzo made an out on the first pitch of the game. And then Judge went out on his third pitch which wasn’t a strike. Stanton singles off the Wall and brings up the .199 hitter, Joseph Gallo, who is hitting cleanup. Put that on the autopsy.
I give Cole a pass because he was probably less than 100 percent since his recent injury. He better learn how to save himself for September and October.
The real problem this year was an injured DJ. Didn’t expect him to hit .340 but losing his spray-hitting ability was big. The offense was short without him at his best.

I can see the Post headline now: Judgement Day. Then they’ll determine that the verdict was to fire Boone.
You wanna know what I'm feeling right now? Excitement. I cannot wait to get a new manager and a roster of competent baseball players who know how to run the bases and play defense. THIS was the worst Yankees team I've had the pleasure of watching for 162 games and I genuinely think I watched every one of them. I've got nothing good to say about them as a team. Individual players? Sure. Team wise? Horrible.

You gys should really trade Judge for a good baserunner who plays great d. That will help.

This happened because the baseball gods knew I would turn down @VORP Speed 's free ticket offer to the ALDS, because I'm still not going basically anywhere. Maybe 2022?

Clearly your fault. I had our Legends seats picked out for Sunday afternoon. I'll get us tix for the WC game next year, as we scrap for the chance to play Toronto.
