I’m With Jeter: “This season has been a nightmare”

The Captain called it when he spoke to the media after being diagnosed with yet another muscle strain, this time in his calf, and most likely going back on the DL. I can’t imagine what his level of frustration must be. He just wants to play and yet his body keeps letting him down. So awful.

Speaking of awful, that’s what Hughes was today in what could have been his audition for the Padres. After all, his old buddy Ian Kennedy is now a Padre and Hughes is a California boy and Petco is supposed to be a pitcher’s park. Still, he couldn’t get hitters out and was gonzo before I blinked.

The lack of offense isn’t worth talking about at this point. It is what it is.

So after dropping the series to a team they should have creamed, the Yankees head to Chicago to face the circus that will be A-Rod. I’m exhausted contemplating all the media waiting for Mr. Biogenesis to say, “No comment. I just want to help my teammates.” Someone on Twitter said it’s kind of sad that Mo and his farewell tour are the only things worth savoring this season, and I have to agree. I wish we could fast-forward to next year.

    I’m still hoping for the miracle – the wild card.

    Always worth hoping, Freya. You never know.

    Its tough coming this late in the season and being almost 10 games out of first. While most of our pitching, Hughes, C.C. and Joba not included, has been great, the bats are not going anywhere fast. Who knows how long Jeter is going to be out now, and I don’t know what to think about A-Rod coming back tonight. If MLB tosses him through next season and he fights it, he can play tonight and on-going until a decision is reached. But what is that going to be like?! The fans, for the most part, are going to booo him, both away and home, and I even though I assume he should expect it, I’m certain its going to have an extremely negative effect on him. Its impossible to predict what will happen through the rest of the regular season, but I afraid its going to be painful. GO YANKEES???

    Tonight should be interesting with A-Rod there, Diane. People on Twitter are calling it “Rodmageddon.” LOL
