Wild Card Game: It’s all over

The Yankees’ season is over. Boston topped the Yankees 6-1 in the Wild Card Game at Fenway Park, postponing the Bombers’ World Series hopes to 2022. It wasn’t much of a contest tonight, either. The Red Sox jumped Gerrit Cole early and the Yankees’ offense had no answers. Boston will now head to Tampa to play the Rays in the ALDS.

There’s plenty of blame to spread on 2021 Yankees, but tonight’s loss epitomized so much of what went wrong for this year’s club. The offense sputtered. The manager made questionable decisions. Fundamentals were lacking. So it goes.

We’re going to transition to our offseason coverage in the coming weeks, but there’s still some time to reflect upon the 2021 club. The playoffs have just begun, so the front office won’t be making roster moves anytime soon. With that, let’s get to the takeaways from tonight’s game:

Boston Red Sox Series Preview: September 24 to September 26

It is time for the most important series of the year. After yesterday’s much needed off-day following the 20 game in 20 day stretch, the Yankees shipped up to Boston for a crucial weekend series that has huge Wild Card implications. The Yankees are riding high going into this one following the sweep of Texas, and believe it or not, they are 7-3 in their last 10 games. I don’t know about you, but that sweep was quite calming after the debacle against Cleveland over the weekend. The Yankees find themselves 2 games back of Boston for that first Wild Card spot, so let’s hope they can take care of business this weekend and either tighten up that race or outright take the first spot for themselves.
