Both the New York Yankees and the New York Jets were in action last night and both teams lost, so it was inevitable that today’s radio program was going to open up with a bit of a negative tone — and it did.
Boomer & Craig began things talking about the Jets’ 23-17 loss to the Texans and how the defeat wasn’t as bad as it could have been, pointing out the ‘bend-don’t-break’ approach from the defense kept things close.
As for the Jets’ offensive unit, they spent the majority of the night looking discombobulated. Boomer came away from the game both feeling sorry for Mark Sanchez and feeling that he needs to find a way to stop getting passes batted down at the line of scrimmage, which has become a recurring problem for the Jets starting quarterback.
As far as placing blame, Boomer wasn’t ready to start getting on Rex Ryan, while Craig had no problem pointing a finger at the coordinator of the offense, Tony Sparano.
Moving right along to the Bombers, who fell to the Orioles 3-2, thus tying up their ALDS at one game apiece. The story emerging from this game was the Bombers’ inability to come up with the big hit, as they left 20 runners on base. Craig was not happy with Joe Girardi, saying the Yankees’ skipper is no longer ‘his’ Manager of the Year. This stemming from Girardi’s decision to not pinch run for Mark Teixeira in the 8th inning — with Brett Gardner on the roster?!
