    Yanks showed some fight in the end of this one. But, it was not enough. Actually, it just makes this one sting a little more. Put another “L” on the board.

    New York has now lost 8 of their last 12…and it should be 10 of their last 12 (if not for Willy Aybar and Luis Castillo gifts).

    Cross your fingers on the biceps tendinitis issue for CC Sabathia. If he’s got an issue, given the way that the rest of the Yankees rotation has been inconsistent, if you’re the Yankees, you might as well start planning vacation activities for October – because this year’s Yankeeland baseball journey this year will end in September.

    And, by the way, don’t lose sight of the fact that “the second place Yankees,” with this loss, are now closer to 3rd place (1 game) and 4th place (2 games) in the A.L. East than they are to the division leader (4 games). If things keep trending the way they are, you might have to call New York “the fourth place Yankees” by the end of next week.

      Saw an interesting stat during the TBS broadcast – if you hold the Braves to three or fewer runs, they almost always lose. But four or more, they’ve had good enough pitching that they almost always win (today notwithstanding). Do the Yankees have the pitching to do it? Be interesting to see that rookie, Hanson, pitch, as well as old friend Lowe on Thursday.

      As for Sabathia, on such a hot day it seems unlikely he couldn’t get “loose” so you wonder if there was enough pain that they needed to take him out or were they being hyper-cautious for something pretty minor? Will be interesting to see if he makes his next start against the Mets.

      not sure how much this means, but you could read CC’s lips each time Girardi went out, and CC kept telling him he was fine and could pitch. I’m hoping this is just precautionary.
