Any Yankees sweep is great, but a four-game sweep against the Red Sox at the Stadium? Extra special. I loved watching the barrage of offense against Price – what fun. There was nail biting as Happ seemed to lose it and the score tightened, but the Yanks prevailed and put even more distance between the teams in the standings.
Of course, there were more injuries. I cannot believe how many players have been dropping like flies this season, more so lately, it seems. It wasn’t horrible enough that Encarnacion fractured his wrist thanks to the hit-by-pitch? We had to lose Hicks too? And coming on the heels of Voit, who may be having surgery for his hernia? And then Torres, who has been on fire lately and hits great at Camden Yards where the Yankees play next, has a “core issue” that needs evaluating? Oh, and let’s not forget Gio, who fouled not one but two balls off his legs last night. JEEZ. It’s great that the call-ups have been filling in so well, but COME ON. In the long run, we need guys to be healthy!
In the meantime, I’m reveling in last night’s sweep and hoping the momentum will carry into Baltimore.
