Maybe Mad Dog Russo was right?
Cory Lidle has now made 8 starts for the Yankees:
3 very good, 4 not good at all, and one that was OK.
I thought that Lidle would have performed better than this – and, now, the Yankees 4th starter in the post-season is not a sure thing. It could be Wright or Lidle.
The next three starts, in terms of performance, for both Wright and Lidle will probably be the deal breaker.
On a positive note, the magic number is now seven – with 18 games to go. This date, last year, the Yankees were two back in the loss column with 19 to play. What a difference a year makes, huh?
Lastly, a riddle (of sorts) for you – What does David Ortiz have to do these days to watch the Yankees? The answer: Look up!
It’s a bird!
It’s a plane!
It’s a frog!
Not bird, not plane, not even frog, it’s just the Yankees, a.k.a. the top dog.
