    hopefully it’s just a strain and no structural damage….

    Jason Nix hit the ball that hurt Mo….not the best start to his day

    Really like Ross Detwiler. Didn’t realize he was a former 6th overall pick. Looks like he’s coming into his own so far this season.

    if Mo’s injury is significant (and lets hope it’s not)….then that’s what they should do…..Hughes could still be an awesome reliever and I’d trust him more right now than I would Soriano.

    What a stupid thing for Rivera to do as his shagging flyballs have always been.


    I don’t give a #@#$ if he doesn’t like it, he’s a pitcher and more specficially the Yanks closer and #1 reason for living i.e. for making the postseason, not an outfielder. No way he plays the outfield save in a game the Yanks are up by five or more runs (out of grandslam tying the game range) with no one on in the ninth where if a ball is hit his way, he doesn’t make a move towards it even if it means an inside the park homerun, if he wants to play out his fantasy of playing in the outfield. Stick him in RF and let Granderson get whatever ball hit Mo’s way.

    Now we will see how Robertson does as a closer. I have full confidence D-Rob can do the job while Mo is on the disabled list. It will be intriguing to say the least as when was the last time someone other than Mo came in to close three or more games in a row?

    I’d rather Hughes start.

    “I’d rather Hughes start.”

    Yea….I would too really…but we’ll see where that goes..

    I don’t care who closes, who is the EIG or whatever. I just want Mo be OK.

  14. jmv May 3rd, 2012 at 8:10 pm

    *to be OK*

  15. beedogs May 3rd, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    I’d rather Hughes be designated for assignment.
