Joe Girardi said he wanted to watch the tape first before taking any decisions. But he also said that it’s “safe to say” Chien-Ming Wang will stay in the rotation.
The Nationals got five outs in the fifth inning thanks to the blown call at first base and the dropped throw by Ramiro Pena.
“That was the old Wang,” Jorge Posada said. “Everything I saw was positive. He gave us a chance to win that game.”
Wang reported that his wife and newborn son are doing well. “The baby is cute,” Wang said. “He looks like me.” CMW was in the delivery room for the birth and cut the cord.
It’s a hideous loss for the Yankees against the worst team in baseball. But if it helps lead to Wang returning to form, the night won’t be a total loss.
