Another rocky start from Javier Vazquez ended with a loss for the Yankees on Saturday, but it wasn’t Vazquez who got the decision, and the final result might not have been the biggest blow. The bullpen blew a lead and Curtis Granderson went on the disabled list. Josh Thomson has the story.
A.J. Burnett played no role in the game, but Joe Girardi has joked more than once that his No. 2 starter could be an emergency catcher if need be. Turns out, Burnett hardly pitched in high school and seemed about as likely to catch as pitch when he turned pro. He’s one of several Yankees who have seen the game as both a hitter and a pitcher.
