Tough Game


















This was the toughest loss all year. The Yankees should have won this game you can blame it on anything; the blunders of Cano and Girardi are just examples. It seems that the Yankees shoul
d have put this game away innings ago. Burney was not seen in the bullpen and there are whisperings that he went back to New York for an MRI. Joba's start should be categorized. as "lucky", he was a wizard with the ground balls (right). It seems the Yankees just scraped by with Joba on the mound. Then the 'pen took over and we should have given them some cushion leaving 15 runners stranded. However we can still take 2/3 from the Sox and I am confident with A.J. taking the mound tomorrow. It will be hard to get the taste of today's hard loss out of our mouths.
Update 11:56: Pete Abe confirms that Burney has been sent back for an MRI. Also Wang was placed on the DL and so was Cody Ransom after a sliding injury (quad).
