Javier Vazquez pitched well (again) but the Yankees still couldn’t make it through the night without an injury (again). Rick Carpiniello has the story from last night’s game.
Across town, the Mets are going through their typical circus but Jerry Manuel is keeping his head up even as the sharks are swarming. My column looked at how the frenzy around Manuel’s job has increased, even as he’s done a few things right. As you know, you can’t predict baseball.
In better health-related developments, Curtis Granderson will begin a rehab assignment and – if all goes well – could return late next week. Carp’s notebook also has items on Marcus Thames, Kevin Russo and Phil Hughes.
Be sure to check in later this afternoon for updates from Citi Field as Carp will be on the scene and blogging.
