Brian Cashman loves to say that the Yankees play 162 one-game seasons. Today was a prime example of that.
“0-7 feels like 0-14 in New York,” he said in the clubhouse as we were waiting to talk to Jeff Karstens. “But you have to get through it.”
So, Cash, what were you thinking when you saw Karstens go down?
“You canâ€™t print was going through my head and coming out of my mouth at the time that happened,” he said.
A few words on Karstens before we get to the audio. The guy had a broken bone in his leg and threw five pitches to Kevin Youkilis. Then he goes to the hospital to get X-rayed and put in an air cast, comes back to the Stadium and goes to the bench to watch the rest of the game.
Then he limps out of the trainer’s room to talk to the media and was cracking jokes.
I’ve added Jeff Karstens to the list of guys I’m rooting for. You should, too.
