Bullpen and defense fail Yankees late, Red Sox seize division title in 11-6 win

After taking the first two games of their series against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees sought to complete the sweep on Thursday and prevent the Red Sox from celebrating a division title at Yankee Stadium. As is usually the case between these two teams, Thursday’s game was a back and forth contest but the Red Sox ultimately prevailed 11-6 and will be leaving New York as the AL East champs.

According to Ohtani’s representatives, they were very impressed with the Yankees’ presentation, but no matter how great it was, nothing could change the fact that they were not a west coast team and that the New York market is too big for his liking.

The Yankees were considered clear frontrunners to land the Japanese phenomenon’s services, and it is very peculiar as to why these intentions were not made public earlier in this process. With his preferences now widely known, teams such as the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres are on the top of his wish list.

He has also made it clear that he does not want to sign with Boston, Minnesota, nor Oakland. With money and winning on the bottom of his totem pole, it will be very interesting to see where he ends up. The Yankees can now shift their offseason focus.
