A reporter fired the question at Joe Girardi after yesterday’s loss:
“Will this 10-game road trip show what this team is made of?”
“We have to play our best baseball the rest of the way,” Girardi answered. “If things don’t go your way, one at-bat or one pitch, you’ve got to get back up and fight. When things are down, that’s when people show their true colors.”
The Yankees will wear road gray when they hit Detroit today. Then it will be on to Tampa and Seattle and Los Angeles.
There’s a little less than a month left in the season. That’s almost four weeks. It’s exactly 26 games and the Yankees need every one of them.
What they do in these 26 games is what this team is really made of.
