Joe Torre was asked whether the team would get some bullpen help tomorrow. “I’m talking to Cash about that,” he said. “Possibly.”
That’s usually Torre-speak for “Yes.”
The clubhouse was deserted when we got in there. A 12-0 loss and a day game tomorrow does that. But I managed to get Melky Cabrera on his way out. He wasn’t too upset at the demise of his hitting streak.
“I was thinking about it during my last at-bat. But it’s no big deal,” he said. “Eighteen games, that’s pretty good.”
Melky, to his credit, is speaking much better English. Certainly better than my college Spanish.
The Yanks are 4-7 against Baltimore this season. Very strange.
Hey, Seattle is down 3-0. The day may not be a total loss for the Yanks.
