The Yankees weren't going to win the division, but they are only 5.5 games back from a Wild Card spot. None of other team within striking distance of the postseason gave up. They're acting like they're one of these teams that is 20 games back.
The most disturbing part of this entire thing is the fact that Brian Cashman is now making decisions based on what the talking heads on TV say. Leading up to the trade deadline the jackasses on ESPN and the MLB Network repeatedly talked about how the Yankees needed to sell.
Now they fucking sold and are left with their dicks in their hands. Don't give me that they're setup for the future bullshit, because it is not a sure thing that any of them, let alone all of the prospects they received, will ever play an inning at the major league level in pinstripes.
Fuck Cashman for making decisions based on TV talking heads, fuck upper management for letting Cashman talk them into selling and fuck Girardi for managing based on a stupid fucking binder.
Fuck the Yankees for selling.
There is only right now. There are not guarantees with prospects, so there is no future. This is how losers run their teams.
