Seriously, the pitching staff especially needs to take a day and go to a spa. Not tomorrow, since there’s another round of torture against the Red Sox, but Sunday before the ESPN game. Girardi always gives his players a surprise “play date” during spring training, but I think he should do it now before they all collapse.
Tonight’s loss was sad. The offense fought back after Kuroda’s rocky start only to have Claiborne blow it. The kid was good early in the season but has been awful lately, so this one was pretty predictable. At one point I said to Michael, “I’d rather see Joba right now.” My husband looked at me as if I had six heads, but how much worse could things get?
And on a day when our Wild Card competitors won – a real kick in the teeth for any playoff hopes. And let’s face it. The Red Sox own the Yankees this year.
