Even in the rain.
I was out last night and only saw the game from the fifth inning on, but Kuroda and the relievers did a great job in tough conditions. It didn’t rain in CT, but it sure looked ugly in the Bronx.
The Yankees seem relieved that Jeter’s quad is “only” a Grade 1 strain, but does anybody think he won’t be put on the DL? And even if he just rests it until after the All-Star break, he’ll still need time to rehab, which he hasn’t been able to do yet. In other words, he won’t be at 100% for a while. Neither will any of the others currently down in the minors working out their injuries, except Pineda. Which leads me to ask, shouldn’t Cashman make a trade or two to bolster the offense if the Yankees really want to make a run at this thing?
I say yes.
