Seriously Varitek and Coco...
All we needed was a fly ball and Rivera would have blown a save... the Yankees would be on the ropes... and the series would be won with a game to go.
Look, Mussina was awesome and the bats were dead... but when Rivera was all but handing the game over for a gut punch and possible season destroying win, you've GOT to take advantage of it.
Remember how the Yankees took those 5 games in Boston that August and essentially sunk the season?
They went from 2 games out to 6 1/2 back.
Well I know this isn't the exact same situation... but the chance to take 4 straight could put the Yankees down for the count before the All Star break.
You can NOT let this team believe in itself.
This was a potential season crippler.
Just hit a fly ball!
