It wasn’t bad enough that CC has a groin strain and has gone on the DL (or that he felt pain a few days ago and didn’t tell anybody, which I hate). Then Pettitte had to get hit with that comebacker and fracture his ankle? Could I just close my eyes and go back to bed and start this day over again?
Andy was in the midst of a mostly brilliant return that stabilized the pitching staff and lifted everybody up. And now he’ll be gone until September, with who knows how much rust? The last time he was injured he called it quits. I sure hope he wants to give it another shot once he’s rehabbed.
Another Big Question is what do we do in the meantime? Roy Oswalt would have looked good about now. Instead we have Sweaty Freddy (yes, he pitched well today) and Warren, a callup. Neither of them inspires confidence. Cashman needs to make magic.
And yes, we won the game. Soriano made it hairy, but he’s been used a lot lately so I’m sure he’ll be fine. We have much bigger problems.
