Not much point in breaking this game down.
â€œThe whole game bothered me,â€ Joe Girardi said. â€œWe stunk is the bottom line. We stunk.â€
For him, those are harsh words. Girardi expressed faith in Darrell Rasner (1-5, 6.00 in his last six starts) but is clearly upset with how the team performs in the clutch. The Yankees are now at .250 for the season with RISP. Only Toronto and Seattle are worse in the AL.
Going back five games, they are 8 of 45.
Injury update: Hideki Matsui now has a stiff neck to go along with his sore left knee. He is not playing the outfield any time soon. Johnny Damon wasn’t really available to hit but got treatment and said his left foot was a little better. We could see him tomorrow or Thursday.
Thanks for all the comments. Back at it tomorrow.
