It’s amazing that the Yankees are 24-8 since the All-Star break and 29-10 since July 2.
But tonight was a warning sign that they Joe Torre has to be careful with Mariano Rivera.
Not only did Rivera allow three hits and a run in the ninth, but he twice failed to back up bases when he allowed a hit. Torre said after the game that Rivera would get Tuesday off. You have to wonder if, like last season, it’s catching up to him
His line the last two games: 2.1 6 2 2 0 2.
Like it or not, Kyle Farnsworth is going to have to pitch some important innings. Either that or Brian Cashman will have to find somebody else who can.
Finally, thanks to everybody who commented tonight. It’s nice to know that even on nights when I’m off, this blog keeps breathing. We had well over 1,000 comments on the game post. Thanks.
I’m back at the Stadium tomorrow and Wednesday. Catch you then.
