Which is worse?


Frobby

Recommended Posts

1. Losing on back-to-back two-out hits by Didi Gregorius and Brendan Ryan.

2. Losing on homers by Tex and ARod.

When we lost on Tuesday, I thought to myself, OMG, how could we let those two players beat us? But then getting beat by the two high-priced mercenaries was demoralizing in a very different kind of way. It always sucks to lose to the Yankees, but I can't decide whether it's worse to lose because of the guys who shouldn't be able to beat you, or worse to lose because of the guys who symbolize the Yankees' profligate spending.

Discuss.

Equally worse - every loss to the Yankees is (5-4 or 16-2).

IMO, losing sucks and especially to the MFY.

Doesn't matter how or why, doesn't change the out, still goes into the record books as a loss.

Like saying, would you rather lose 3-2 and know you almost could have won, or would you rather have it decidedly so like 8-2?

It wasn't just that those guys beat us, the game was winnable, if they hadn't made mistakes and hit with RISP, so they also beat themselves.

A-rod disgusts me. Everyone can't believe how well he's playing. Let's think about that, proven cheater continuing to outperform expectations. Turns 40 on Monday and his ISO power and SLG % are the highest they've been since 09. It's more than likely the Yankees are rolling out a cheater while they gain a larger lead in the AL East.

Not at their age they're not. Those guys are in really good physical shape and staying healthy. Amazing how resilient the old body can be . . . . .

They're former all-world players. They'll be better than Ryan and Gregorious when they're 50. I don't care how old they are, they're both still good players.

And he's getting celebrated as if he never cheated.
