Joe Girardi on Edwar Ramirez and Kyle Farnsworth giving up three home runs in two innings:
“You let them pass. They’ve been throwing the ball so well. Even Eddie tonight, he threw the ball so well. You hate for that to happen. I was happy with the way he threw the ball. Farnsy, he gave up a leadoff home run and then he buckled down. I’m not concerned.”
Confirmed after the game that Hideki Matsui had his knee drained. He said he feels much better but he’s not sure whether he can play tomorrow. Matsui does not believe he will need to go on the disabled list.
Brian Bruney showed up after the game. He said his bullpen in Tampa “was awful” yesterday because he was all over the place. He also felt some pain in his foot on some pitches. He’ll get checked out by a specialist today.
Bruney remains optimistic that he can be back in late July. But he’s got to first get in a groove of throwing every other day and then get into some rehab games. He’s been out since April 22, after all.
