Joe Torre said after the game that Ron Guidry wants to stay in a five-man rotation despite the day off on Monday because that would give the starters an extra day of rest.
But with Kei Igawa pitching so poorly, it’s something they will talk about again on Friday.
That spot in the rotation will come up Tuesday. The Yankees would seem to have 4 options:
Igawa again. Phil Hughes (who is supposed to start for Scranton on Sunday), Joba Chamberlain (who pitched for Scranton on Wednesday) or somebody else.
The best move might be to skip the fifth starter this time then pitch Hughes on Aug. 4. Once I find out what’s going to happen, I’ll pass it along.
That’s it for tonight. Need to head to the airport hotel and catch an early flight to Baltimore tomorrow.
