Last night the Yankees wrapped up the Subway Series with their second straight loss, and today’s off day comes at a time when the team could use a chance to regroup. “This has been one of the tougher weeks on us during the course of the season,” manager Joe Girardi said. Rick Carpiniello has the story.
The notebook has a positive update on Javier Vazquez, plus items on Curtis Granderson and the Yankees bullpen.
Sam talked to CC Sabathia about pitchers in the batter’s box. Vazquez can vouch for the tricky nature of American League pitchers hitting, but most of them — including Sabathia — seem to enjoy it when given the opportunity.
My thanks to Carp and Sam for letting me more or less completely unplug yesterday. Enjoy today’s off day. Here on the blog, we’ll spend the day looking at what’s gone right and what’s gone wrong with the Yankees so far this season.
