Yes, Krazy Kyle can’t be trusted. However, the Yankees will hand the ball to Mariano Rivera in the ninth inning with a lead for only the second time this season. How incredible is that?
The Yankees are only the second team in 19 years to go this deep into the season without a save. The 2002 Detroit Tigers didn’t get a save until May 1.
Frankly, if Mo can’t protect a two-run lead in this game with 8, 9, 1 coming up, then the Yankees have problems that are unfathomable.
