The series was lost when the Yankees left 8 to 10 runners on base in game one without the benefit of a base hit!
If they could have gotten that hit and steal game one they're up 2-0 going back to NY! If I'm not mistaken they had the bases loaded 2x and 2nd and 3rd once without scoring a run!
Then they would need one out of 2 at home to clinch.
I've said all season they didn't have the starting pitching to win it all, too many ? marks!
Having a tough bullpen doesn't help if the starters give up 4-5 runs in the 1st and 2nd innings!
Houston, Dodgers, Red Sox even Cleveland has better starters than NY!
Also the injuries reshaped their season if they were healthier they wouldn't have fallen so far behind and had a shot at the Division title. Too many important players were lost for large chunks of the season!

Way too many excuses. The Yankees lost.

Disappointed that CC decides to blame the umpire Angel Hernandez. I know he is historically rated as very poor and his first base performance last game was very poor but I did not see any squeezing of the strike zone in this game. Not the way I would want to go out as a Yankee (he will not be back next season).

and then Stanton. :(

Hernandez is the worst ump in baseball. That called third strike to Benintendi to end the inning with the bases loaded wasn't even close. I don't see why they don't just use K-Zone, or whatever it's called, for balls and strikes. We have the technology to overcome these challenges.

Would have rather had the 16-1 game be the clincher, but still, a totally satisfying end to the series. Great win for the Sox and how fun to see them celebrating at Yankee stadium?!!!

I remember when the days when the Sox had the better power and the Yanks had the better starters. Who won back then? It's better now.

Aaron Judge is an EXACT example of why you "let sleeping dogs lie". After his stunt in which he walked by the Sox locker room while playing "New York, New York", Boston outscored the Yankees 20-4 in 2 games at Yankee Stadium! Thank you very much Mr. Judge.

As someone who hasn't followed baseball for over 20 years I do appreciate some of these posts reminding me exactly why I disliked the Yankees.
