CLEVELAND -- There's a lot to stew on if you're a Yankees fan. One loss away from a third straight division series exit, the Bronx Bombers play Game Three against the Indians Sunday night at home. And they better find something in their bats. How can this be happening again, especially to Alex Rodriguez?
The best offense in the game has four runs and eight hits in 20 innings. No one seems like a threat. A-Rod has four strikeouts, including three Friday night against Fausto Carmona. There were few answers in the Yankees clubhouse after Game Two, just the usual cliches about better approaches, seeing more pitches, etc.
Patience sounds like a good idea but panic is more appropriate. Can you imagine what it's going to be like Sunday in the Bronx if the Yankees get swept out of the first round? Forget about A-Rod's option. And probably forget about Joe Torre coming back for 2008.
So Yankees fans, what do you do to fix this mess?
