The New York Yankees keep licking their wounds who left the humiliating playoff elimination in the game for the American League Wild Card against rivals Boston Red Sox, who have already secured a ticket to the American Championship Series, and apparently, the criticism does not stop for the team, since the King of Hit himself, Pete Rose, hit the Bronx Bombers with everything.
Pete Rose spoke with Bob Nightengale of USA Today, where he strongly criticized the New York Yankees lineup, which he described as ‘the worst they could put on the ground’ and specifically the slugger Joey Gallo, who does not like it at all. the amount of strikeouts he gives.
That was the worst damn lineup they could put together. His hitters in the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th places are all safe outs. They depended on Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge to do something. If they couldn’t, the pressure was on Joey Gallo and you saw how that worked. How does a guy who strikes out 213 times in a year play every day? Not even Ray Charles (blind pianist) would strike out that much
The truth is that the criticism of the making of the roster by Brian Cashman and Aaron Boone is one of the main points that their detractors use to ask for the departure of both from the team and it seems that Pete Rose himself agrees with him. argument.
