I know the Yankees flew into Chicago in the wee hours after playing their ESPN game on Sunday night. But the hitters looked lively. It was the pitchers who seemed groggy.
Sweaty Freddy, along with a parade of relievers, kept giving back the lead and the result was a loss to the White Sox that should have been a win. I mean, how do you drive their starter out of the game in the second inning and still not get a “W?”
I’ll tell you how: you leave Joba in too long, for one thing. Yes, he’s still coming back from major injuries, but shouldn’t he be working out the kinks in the minors then? The Rays won. Our lead in the division narrowed. We don’t have the luxury of watching Joba rehab. It’s not fun at all.
I won’t even bother talking about Eppley and Logan. The point is that the bullpen, aside from Robertson and Soriano, have not done the job lately.
Very happy to see Tex back and apparently feeling fine.
Not very happy to read about Pineda’s DUI arrest.
Nice mug shot. Anyhow, so far he’s been quite the bust as far as trades go.
