Yahoo | Scott Thompson: With the Yankees’ current ills, you don’t have to worry about whether or not they know things are going poorly. Gerrit Cole said the clubhouse was “not happy,” while others have echoed that they know things aren’t good enough right now. At the same time, DJ LeMahieu acknowledged that “no one’s going to feel sorry” for them, and they simply have to improve.
Numbah One is not happy. Former WFAN host Mike Francesa slammed the New York Yankees Sunday on Twitter following their 4-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Not, repeat not, too early for a major shakeup.
The first miscue came when Kevin Kiermaier hit a bloop to center field with Mike Zunino on first base. Hicks faked like he was going to catch it before it fell in front of him, but then he bobbled the ball, denying him a chance to force Zunino at second. Yandy Diaz came up next and grounded a game-tying RBI single to center field, which Hicks again couldn’t field cleanly, allowing Kiermaier to take third base.
