So said Joe Torre. It’s always something. Another sloppy loss, another closed-doors meeting, more quotes about underperformance and lack of effort. It’s getting tired. Sixty games is a reasonable sample. They’re not underperforming. They’re performing at just about the level that we should expect from a horrible defensive team with serious lineup issues and some questionable pitchers. So please, Yankees, accept this reality, and cut off the feedback loop of recrimination, which is only making things worse.
PS: Congratulations Derek Jeter on career hit #1,800. Derek. We always have Derek.
