It’s hard to think of two worse losses than what has happened to the Yankees the past two nights. Last night they came back from a big deficit only to see their brilliant closer flush it away. Tonight they had an 8-3 lead only to see their bullpen flush it away. I guess Girardi’s binder didn’t tell him using a lefty against Mike Napoli was a bad idea. Then again, Joe doesn’t have a ton of options.
That’s because the injury bug has now moved to the bullpen. David Robertson is shut down for 5 days or so with a shoulder issue. Shawn Kelley has a sore tricep and won’t be used until next week. Boone Logan is going to get a MRI for a biceps issue. So, the Yankees are in serious trouble.
And now the reeling Yankees will turn to David Huff to try and slow the Red Sox down.
