Worst rotation since ‘97?
Actually the Yankees wasting their prime years on a COVID-19 season is awesome imo. We may not have baseball in a few weeks so Yankee wins are kind of meaningless.I do hate losing to these assholes, but for the first time ever, I support full tank mode.
Just to save others a bit of time: in 1925, the Sox finished last in the American League -- a _distant_ last, with a record of 47-105, 49 games back of the Senators for first, and 21 games (!) behind the seventh-place Yankees (so I guess the year wasn't a complete loss). The "pitching" staff gave up an average of 1.6 walks-plus-hits per inning, and 4.97 runs per nine innings. Among their hurlers were Ray Francis, who was allowed to stay on the mound for 28 innings despite an ERA of 7.71.Eh, 1925 was worse.
