Actually, Cano was hit on his left hand (old pic from a game at Fenway). If those x-rays aren’t negative – or even if they are and he’s bruised and swollen – I don’t know what will become of us. He was just getting hot again too. Let’s hope he’s okay.
And Kuroda. What a warrior to stay in the game and give the Yankees a chance to win after that rocky start. But he’s clearly struggling with fatigue and we need him fresh and rested.
On the positive side, how about Russell Martin? If anyone told me he’d have 20 homers this season, I’d have done this.
Naturally, the O’s won too so the tight rope tightens even more. Oh, boy.
Congrats to Homer Bailey on the no-hitter. I’d never heard of him, but I’d heard about the guy he beat: our very own AJ.
