And Then There Were Two

May 11th, 2014 by Jane Heller


Yup, they’re dropping like flies in the Yankees’ starting rotation. Nova’s gone. Pineda’s gone. And now CC’s gone, hopefully just for the 15 days of his DL stint or until they get the fluid out of his knee.

Which leaves Tanaka and Kuroda…and Phelps….and (gulp) Aceves….and the latest kid who just got called up today. All I can say is I hope the hitters can pick up the slack.

    Perhaps its just my generations belief that people and organizations are always trying to hid something, but my first impulse is that there’s really nothing wrong with C.C. but that they’re trying to find someone that can do a better job than C.C. right now. I know there’s nothing in the system, but maybe they can buy someone. I felt bad for the team after Tex tied it up with 2 outs in the top of the 9th inning. His bat is really working much earlier this season than it usually does. Now its 4 against The Mets – 2 home and 2 away — if the weather reports are correct, there’s a good chance that at least 3 of the 4 games could get rained out. We’ll see. GO YANKEES!!!

    Interesting theory, Diane, if a little paranoid (lol). Do you really think, after what happened with A-Rod and Dr. Ahmad, that they would fake an MRI result? Or that CC would go along with it? It’s not surprising that he would have fluid on the knee and need it drained. Remember Matsui? Once you’ve had surgery it’s not uncommon. What’s troubling is that it can be a situation that becomes chronic.
