I think the Yankees need to consider an exorcism quickly. It’s pretty rare that you see a hitter get hurt when getting hit on the hands by a pitch. Curtis Granderson suffered that type of injury in the second game of spring training and only came back last week. Tonight, he did it AGAIN and has a broken pinkie. No word on a timetable for his return.
As if that wasn’t enough of a freak occurrence, David Phelps had to leave the game tonight after getting hit on his pitching arm by a batted ball back to the box.
I fully suspect that tomorrow’s game will be postponed because of a plague of locusts. (And yes, I know the game is inside.)
