If you ignore the 4 or 5 times in the last 2 months when they had several gut punch losses in a row everyone called season over and then they bounced back right afterwards sureI think we may be underestimating their collective psyche after the Yanks nuked them this past weekend. They were hot coming in, feeling good and knew this was a big season both in the playoffs chase and as a measuring stick. They have heard the talk that they can’t play with the big boys and only beat up on the little sisters of the poor. So what happens, they get blown out Friday night and then have two emotional gut busting losses on Saturday and Sunday. Last nights game looked like a team whose mind was elsewhere. Stunned, shocked and maybe realistic may have crept in after Sunday. Woukdnt surprise me if they are low energy/focus again tonight.
