Who wants to wake up and read that the A’s beat the Yanks again, pitched better, hit better and didn’t lose a player to a bum hip flexor/upper quad?
I don’t like what’s happening out in Oakland. Maybe if I were back home on the West Coast instead of vacationing in the East I’d be able to send my good vibes to them. On the other hand, they should be able to beat the A’s on their own, despite the fact that the A’s are the hottest team in baseball right now.
Nova wasn’t dominating and their guy was, except for a homer to Martin. (Nova also committed an error, which I was awake for – he bobbled that ball three times!). Our famous Bombers didn’t hit except for the aforementioned Martin homer and one in the ninth to Cano. Andruw Jones, who’s been great for us, was the opposite of great. Ditto: Cody Eppley.
But losing Swisher to injury could hurt the most. Swish says he’s probably day to day, but we’ve heard that before. If Cashman was thinking we don’t need an outfielder by the trade deadline, he might be rethinking that right now. I would be.
