I haven’t posted in a while — under the weather combined with summer doldrums — but I was heartened by the sweep of Toronto and last night’s extra-inning win over the Marlins.
What I’m troubled by is the multitude of injuries the Yankees are sustaining. I know it’s the time of year when players get banged up, but now Chapman’s knee pain was bad enough for him to take himself out of the game and seek an MRI; Robertson’s shoulder is aching; Didi hurt his foot on a weird play; Judge is no closer to testing his fractured wrist by swinging a bat; and Sanchez is still out. CC is said to be returning soon, but I’m sure there are other casualties I’m forgetting. How this team can limp through to the end of the season like this beats me. I just want everybody healthy so we can chalk up wins against teams like the Marlins, let alone our division rivals.
These are trying times for Boone and the organization. I hope they can weather them.
