The Yankees Make History in Colorado, Not The Good Kind

New York Yankees via The New York Times

The New York Yankees just completed a three-game series in Colorado, in which they lost two out of three to the Rockies. During the final game, they did something for the first time in their long history. Usually that would be a good thing, however, in this case it is not.

The Yankees cruised into the bottom of the 8th inning, holding a 3-1 lead. Quickly, C.J. Cron changed the tide when he hit a go-ahead grand slam. The Yankees would storm back quite quickly and held a 7-5 lead. That was before the Rockies tied the game and Alan Trejo hit a walk-off home run to win the game 8-7.

Getting into that piece of history, yesterday marked the first time in Yankees history where they lost a game in which they had multiple leads of 2-plus runs in the 8th inning or later. That is crazy to think about since the Yankees franchise has been around since 1903.

This small piece of history that the Yankees made over the weekend has described their season perfectly. A flawed team that was not addressed enough in the off-season and is now glaring more than ever.

It has been a very long time since the New York Yankees deemed themselves as sellers at the trade deadline. Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner have made quite the bed for themselves. Could this be a season where one of the most decorated franchises in sports decide to sell at the deadline?
