And so it ends…Andy Pettitte’s (5-1, 2.68) undefeated streak comes to an end, and does any optimism in New York- at least until a next month when some of the injured players will come back. The Yankees limp into Citi Field to face the New York Mets, who are in the middle of a crisis of their own: the players rebelled against manager Jerry Manuel, and the Mets Hierarchy is playing Hangman with Manuel- not that I care.
Oh, back to last night’s game featuring the Tampa Bay Rays and NY Yankees: Pettitte was unable to stop the Rays offense from coming back, not matter how much the Yankees hitters tried to give him the lead. Derek Jeter and Juan Miranda carried the team. The Yanks clawed back, but fell 8-6. It’s not like the Yanks just take losing easily.
Dave Robertson got the fans pumped with 2 shutout innings and 4K. Chan Ho Park caused a revolt as he gave up another long ball.
Yankees Transactions: Kevin Russo and Chad Moeller are on the team. Nick Johnson is now on the 60-day DL. Nick Swisher played last night, but there’s no telling when his bicep will hurt again.
Bud Selig rejected the Yankees Josh Beckett protest.
Brian Cashman said he will not make any trades, and will not bring up Jesus Montero. So this is the team, folks. Let’s go try and make the Wild Card!
Now for all of the frustration Yankees fans have, Mets fans have it worse. Who will will this Subway Series? A sweep for any team will result in an atomic detonation. Place yer bets!
