With today’s rain-out, the Yankees will now play the Red Sox four times in a span of 31 hours. What’s the Vegas odds on Everyday Scottie Proctor pitching three times (or more) in those 31 hours?
This weekend could lay some damage on the Yankees bullpen. It would be much better for Torre to throw the pen scrubs out there and take a beating over the next two days – than to burden the useful guys in the pen.
Better to lose one small meaningless battle to ensure victory in the war.
Let Beam, Henn, and Veras pitch in all four games, if you have to, Joe, rather than continue to kill Proctor, Villone and Bruney. Dotel better be pitching in at least two of these games as well.
There’s still plenty of time to wrap up the title after this weekend – but, first you have to survive the weekend.
