The mood was glum on the 2 train this morning.
“Joe Girardi spoke for all of us,” said a man slumped in his seat.
“I’m not happy,” Girardi told reporters after last night’s loss in Minnesota. “The players aren’t happy. Nobody is happy with this.”
Girardi was blunt when asked about leaving runners on base and surrendering leads.
“It’s very frustrating for everyone,” he shot.
Especially for Andy Pettitte:
“It’s an extremely disappointing loss,” Pettitte said. “I’m extremely disappointed in the way I performed. The team gave me the lead three different times, and it’s unacceptable.”
Girardi summed it up:
“We have to start playing better: That’s the bottom line.”
The mood will be better on the 2 train tomorrow.
