Wang OK; Little Stein speaks up

Wang had a cramp in his base of his hand in the sixth inning, which is why he left the game after 90 pitches. He said it went away after the trainers applied some heat.

Given that he was pitching in Ice Station Zebra, it’s no wonder.

Wang is 22-6 after a loss in his career, winning the last 11 in such situations. He’s now 6-0, 3.00 this season. But keep in mind that he is not an ace.


Meanwhile, as the Yankees go through some turmoil, co-chairperson Hank Steinbrenner issued some supportive words from Tampa.

“I’m very disappointed with the way the season has gone, period,” he told the AP. “The injuries have been a killer, too, there’s no question about that. It happens to one team every year, sometimes more than one team. And it just appears to be our year. It’s something you’ve got to deal with in every sport.

“We just can’t win one out of five games, every time Wang pitches. It’s not going to work. It’s not a good win percentage. Starting pitching is where it’s at, especially in the postseason. At this point, we’ll see if we even make the postseason.”

If we even make the postseason? Not exactly win one for the Gipper.
