This was a tough loss.
When did we resign Jose Veras? Seriously, it’s time to either call somebody up from AAA or heck, why not call up a guy like Evan Meek from AAAA? Anything is better than what we have to trot out there at this point. When you’re beating King Felix 1-0 going into the 8th, I believe that that’s a game you should win.
It wasn’t all bad as Javier Vazquez tossed another gem. I can’t say it enough times, bullpen aside, we can win with the team we have. Yankee fans are so eager to trade away Vazquez when the guy has been the best starter we have since May 12. You can’t claim this guy folds under pressure, either. He came back to NY where he’s vilified. He started extremely poorly out of the gate and everyone questioned whether he was good enough to even pitch in NY. Yet despite all that pressure placed on him to perform each outing, he persevered. I think he can handle the heat.
