A Loss And An Injury – Can I Go Back To Sleep?

July 21st, 2012 by Jane Heller

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.

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.

    Gotta get the split. Hate that Swisher is hurt. Speaking of hurt, I hurt my right hand and am splinted up at the moment. Typing is difficult so I probably won’t be posting for a few days but know I am reading and thinking of you all.

    I am so glad that this was a west coast game so I wasn’t subjected to the misery. I didn’t hear about swisher until now. How about d wise playing regularly and showing some magic? So our wild streak of 3 or more runs a game ended too. That was pretty good while it lasted. I hate games on the west coast–we dont usually play well and I am in baseball withdrawal. I hope the good Hughes shows up.
    Audrey, sorry to hear about your injury. I hope you are off the dl soon! Sending you happy Yankee thoughts whilst you heal.

    So sorry you hurt your hand, Audrey! I hope it’s not too painful and that we’ll see you back and typing soon. Maybe you could dictate your comments to your husband!

    I like Wise, Barbara, so I wouldn’t be unhappy if he substituted for Swisher in the short term. I hope the good Hughes shows up too. I’d really like this losing streak to be brief.
