I sometimes think these games are a farce, how can you possibley have your top hitter up and they can't even hit the ball when they need to. Swish 0 for 5 wtf, Jeter the Captain what happened with his clutch hitting man on 3rd you can't get him home don't understand it's sometimes fustrating to watch these world series champs even play. Bottom of the 10th inning bases loaded stupid hit they win the game. I for the life of me just don't understand. I give up.
