(TSX / STATS) -- EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- On a night when the New York Giants honored their 2007 Super Bowl championship team at halftime, the current Giants once again looked like chumps.

With two weeks left in the regular season and the Yankees trying to reach the playoffs via wild card or a division title, Girardi wasn't messing around when Betances wobbled Monday night. (MORE)
