The Yankees talk it over – for a long time

For at least the fourth time already this season, the Yankees held a team meeting after a bad loss.

This one was was a doozy as Joe Girardi didn’t emerge from the clubhouse until 34 minutes after the game. He even threw the clubbies and security people out before his talk.

The first three meetings didn’t change much, time will tell whether this one does. Girardi was very emotional afterward but didn’t say anything specific about what he wants to see changed.

The Yankees have reacted well to steady, no-panic leadership in the past. Whether this approach works remains to be seen. You can sometimes scare a young team into winning. Old teams have heard it all before.

More on the meeting – including Girardi’s postgame press conference – later on.
