So much for Matt DeSalvo. He was sent back to Scranton after the game. Joe Torre had no patience with him, pulling the rookie in the second inning down 3-1.
“Weâ€™re trying to win a game at that point in time,” Torre said. “I didnâ€™t like what I was seeing; he was trying to feel his way through.”
The bullpen was OK but the offense didn’t appear until the ninth inning. By then it was too late. Where was Roger Clemens when they needed him?
Derek Jeter said Joe Crede stepped on his foot in the second inning thanks to that wayward throw by Josh Phelps. The Captain, of course, said he was fine.
There is some chatter in Chicago about a Bobby Abreu/Jermaine Dye deal. Be careful, Abreu has been on base 12 times in the last four games.
That’s it for me. Much sleep awaits.
