What an insane game this afternoon at Fenway. By the time I tuned in, the Yankees’ second inning rampage was over, but I was excited anyway. And the fact that they tacked on a few more runs for a bona fide Janer was great too. What wasn’t great was that Girardi had to use Betances and Miller in what should have been a blowout. Oh well. There’s an off day tomorrow and we needed to keep pace with the Jays, who amazingly won again.
Also not great was the news during the Boston series that Teixeira is on crutches with a more severe bone bruise than previously thought. Will we see him again this season? Who the hell knows. What’s clear is that the team won’t be at the same strength without him, offensively and defensively. I’m all for giving Bird playing time, but he’s not Tex.
I guess the biggest question going into the weekend series against the Rays is will Toronto ever lose? I figured they’d be tough after all the trades they made, but they’re on a ridiculous run these days and somebody needs to cool them off and give us a chance to retake the division lead. Or maybe we’ll just have to win the rest of the games. Every. Single. One.
