Way to use your bullpen inefficiently, Joe. Hey, at least we saved Rivera for a save situation that might have happened later.
Poor personnel decisions aside, you can’t really pin this loss on Joe Torre. The Yankees just didn’t play well at all tonight; they didn’t get the job done against a team that they really should have beaten. Was it some kind of letdown from the Boston series, or did they just underestimate the Indians? Either way, they blew it. Now, we can put aside any thoughts of the race being over soon. Not to blow tonight out of proportion, but in what is likely to be a close pennant race, a game like tonight could cost them in the end. But then, Boston has several of these losses in the bank already, so maybe tonight just evens things out a little bit.
"I didn't swing the bat good for the last two weeks, but I still have three months left," Mondesi said. "Nobody said anything the first two months of the season when nobody was hitting but Soriano and me. There's no reason for this."
Uh, news flash, Raul, you weren’t hitting in the first two months, you were hitting the first month, and you haven’t hit a lick since then. Take a seat, and shut up.
Mondesi, who will be a free agent at the end of the season, indicated that he would look for a new team to play for next season.
"There's only three months left [in the season]," Mondesi said. "I'll sign and play for somebody else next year."
Added Mondesi: "I'm going to call my agent right now."
