The Yankees play to win. You know how you can tell? It’s funny, all of a sudden they’re on a winning streak, they get a nine-win winning streak, and then they lose. But here’s the thing: They’re trying to get the balls, diving through the air, missing. Which is fine, as long as you’re diving through the air trying to get the ball.
Now how would you like to go flying through the air and fall flat on your face and not catch the ball and you bounce a couple of times and then you got to get up with how many millions of people looking at you?
Not you. You’ll look good trying to make believe you’re getting the ball without looking bad. That’s the way you’re playing. Is that clear?
If you’re going to play where you play, you can’t win. Impossible. You’ve got to be playing to win.
