The New York Yankees have quite the hole to climb out of.
It’s a monster hole to climb out of, even with about three months of regular season action left, so Boone is only worrying about the Yankees instead of all the other teams.
“It’s not about thinking we can pull (a rebound) off, we’ve got to go play well. The history of this game is littered with teams overcoming larger obstacles than this with less than half a season to go. But I will say this, we’re getting ahead of ourselves, we’ve got to go play good baseball and become a great team and to put ourselves in position to even think about that. We’ve got a very important day tomorrow obviously, a double-header, but you can’t start thinking about a margin you’ve got to chase down. We’ve got to go play well and become the team we expect to be, or else that becomes a moot point.”
But the Yankees are behind the Red Sox, Tampa Bay Rays and Toronto Blue Jays in the standings, so they have far more than just Boston to worry about.
Whatever the case, it’s bad times in The Bronx right now.
