The Red Sox trouncing of the Yankees in game 3 on Monday may officially be over, but you can’t convince me the Red Sox haven’t stopped scoring runs. It was a goddamn blood bath out in the Bronx.

This is the 7th game in Red Sox postseason history in which every member of Boston’s starting lineup recorded at least 1 hit. Three of those games have been at Yankee Stadium (also 2003 ALCS Game 6 and 2004 ALCS Game 7).

I’m honestly so excited that it doesn’t feel real. The whole night was like a dream. It started off with possibly the greatest blunder ever recorded.
Brett Gardner called for glasses mid-inning, McCutchen changed cleats mid-inning, Severino didn't warm up until 7:32 p.m.
What were the Yankees all doing today?

Now I don’t know if this is on the outfielders for not being prepared or Severino being a bumbling fool. My guess is if that many people are unprepared, it has to be the manager’s fault. We’ll get to how pathetic Boone is in a second. Regardless of how it happened, it is absolutely incredible that a team couldn’t be prepared for a turning point game in a playoff series. Even more so, at the very least they should know when the game starts.
I’m a good sport, so for any Yankee players reading this (I’m sure all of them follow my blogs) I’ll help you out. Game 4 is Tuesday, October 9th and the official start time is 8:07 pm at Yankee Stadium in Bronx, New York.
Now for Mr. I Got Employed For a Home Run I Hit 15 Years Ago. This was an all-time bad manager performance. If the start time debacle wasn’t enough, Boone doubled down managing the pitching staff.
Entering the 4th inning it was a manageable 3-0 deficit for the Yankees. Severino didn’t have it from pitch one of the game. Despite this, Aaron Boone trotted out the bum for inning and, let’s just say it didn’t go well.
Sheesh. That’s not how you do baseball Mr. Boone.
What this demolition of the Yankees means for Tuesday is the Red Sox can clinch yet again in Yankee Stadium. This raises the question, should the Yankees be required to get a liquor license at this point? It’s a public place hosting and serving alcohol to visitors. Sounds like a bar to me. It makes you think.
We’re on to Houston.
