Taylor Walls? The Rays infielder gave bulletin board material to the New York Yankees – the team with the best record in baseball.
The rays lost Series start on Thursday for the Yanks, their first game this season against the AL East favorite thanks to an error by Walls. While it’s not known if Walls spoke to the media before or after the game, the timing of this quote is a bit odd given the score.
“This team is very beatable and we know we can beat them,” infielder Taylor Walls said per the Tampa Bay Times. “Been here. We’ll be here all year. There’s (18) more games (against them). We’ll be here.”
Rays: Taylor Walls gives the Yankees bulletin board material
Yes, very beatable. Is this the same Taylor Walls who made a crucial mistake in the Rays’ loss on Thursday?
The Yankees have yet to answer Walls directly, but you can bet Aaron Boone will be sticking with that bulletin board footage when he needs it. New York is playing such good baseball at the moment that an opportunity like this is not to be missed.
As for his mistake, Walls was full of excuses:
“Maybe I rushed a little bit just knowing I’d tripped, so I lost a bit of time like I had my feet under me. I do not know. I just felt like my momentum was coming off me.” said walls.
Unfortunately, when you make such a bold claim about a rival, you have to be able to back it up. In one game, Walls did the opposite.
It remains to be seen if he will become the Yankees’ next big enemy. But at the moment it’s a flop.
