There were a lot of people at Yankee Stadium on Saturday, and they didn’t wait until the Blue Jays won to start yelling. Gleyber Torres, the 2nd baseman for the Yankees, got the 1st boos when he grounded out with 2 runners on base at the end of the first inning with no runs scored.

Yankees audiences were just being warmed up.

In the 5th, they really let loose against the Yankees’ best pitcher, Gerrit Cole. When Cole took the mound, the Yankees were ahead 1-0 and he was trying to throw a no-hitter. He left the mound 30 pitches after that with the blue Jays ahead 4-1.

While Isiah Kiner-Falefa lined out to close a 1-2-3 8th, there were more boos. Those who were still there turned up the volume again after the last out of the Yankees’ 5-2 loss, which was their 3rd in a row, 14th during their last 17 games, and 25th in their last 37.

Fans are just as angry as Aaron Boone, the manager of the New York Yankees, who smashed his hand on a desk in a press conference after a game. Since 2009, the Yankees haven’t won a pennant, but during the first half of the season, they won almost every night. After gaining on July 8 and moving to 61-23, they were 15 1/2 games ahead in the AL East. That was.726 baseball for more than half a season, a pace that would have led to 118 wins in the MLB.

Since then, the Yankees’ record has gone from 61-23 to 11-23, which is the same number of losses but 50 fewer wins. Isn’t that hard to believe?

That’s why there are so many boos from Yankees fans.

They are heard by Aaron Judge. He has lived in New York long enough to know how things work there, & he tells that his club did deserve them.

It’s easier said than done to ignore the booing, but Judge says he’s used to it, despite the fact that Yankees fans have treated him like Derek Jeter till his 52-homer rookie season in 2017.

The Yankees can’t control what they’re performing on the field, particularly Judge as well as the rest of a powerhouse infraction that leads the team in runs managed to score & home runs. But since Giancarlo Stanton, the Most Valuable Player at the All-Star Game, has been out since July 24 & hot-hitting veteran Matt Carpenter has been on the injury report since August 9, the Yankees’ bats have gone completely cold.

In their last seven games, the Yankees have scored two runs or less. In 13 of their most recent 16 games, they have scored three or less. In five of those games, they were shut out and lost. Judge has the most home runs in the major leagues with 46, but he hasn’t hit one during his last eight matches, which is the longest drought of the season.
