No help from the schedule

Today is one of those days the Yankees get hosed by the schedule. It’s the final game of a road series, but instead of getting a day game and a chance to get to Boston at a reasonable hour, the Yankees play at 7:05 p.m.

The good news, I suppose, is that the Red Sox and Tigers aren’t playing. So the Yankees can gain a little ground on those teams.

The Yankees trail Boston by five games, four in the loss column. A win tonight and a sweep this weekend would leave the Yankees only 1.5 games out with 12 games to play.

Who am I to doubt the Lucky Foul Pole Squirrel and his magical powers? But it’s asking a lot for a team to go 9-0 on a road trip.

Ian Patrick Kennedy, who has never once lost in the entire career, starts tonight against A.J. Burnett. Ask not for the Yankees can do for you, ask what you can do for the Yankees.
