Chien-Ming Wang pitched tonight with a stiff neck. He woke up with it and was at the Stadium getting treatment at 1 p.m. He said it didn’t bother him much during the game.
Torre said they pulled him because he was at his pitch limit. I still found it weird he started the inning and weirder still that he was pulled with two outs. But he has an extra day of rest the next time and it probably doesn’t much matter.
Here’s Joe Torre’s postgame press conference:
The Yankees leave this afternoon for Colorado, as do I.
Check out our web site later on for a bunch of game coverage. I will check in from Denver.
Thanks for the participation this weekend.
