When I read before today’s game that Soriano had been scratched from the lineup with a sprained thumb, I laughed. I couldn’t believe it. What in the world is going on with the Yankees this year? It’s nuts.
Obviously, I didn’t have high hopes for our chances with Sori out, and my fears were realized in yet another loss to the Sox. CC just isn’t CC and hasn’t been all year. Phelps is back from the DL but he’s not exactly Whitey Ford so I’m not jumping for joy.
The best the Yanks can hope for regarding the Wild Card is, assuming they’ll lose again tomorrow, that they’ll win every other game from now until the very last day.
Not realistic, I know, but that’s about the size of it.
