• Should The Yankees Warm Up Their Punter?

    Posted by on September 30th, 2012 · Comments (4)

    This morning, I’m starting to wonder:  If the Yankees are one game back (or more) come next Tuesday morning, does it make sense to “punt” their games on Tuesday and Wednesday and just get their team in order for a wildcard game?  Of course, if you do this, you also run the risk of allowing the other wildcard team to have a better record and then you’re hitting the road for the wildcard game on Friday.

    But, there’s something to be said about not burning yourself out just to end up in a tie-breaker game on Thursday or the wildcard on Friday, right?

    Then again, maybe the Yankees will be two games up come Tuesday morning and none of this matters?

      After watching Girardi’s machinations the past couple of seasons, winning battles to lose wars and resting players, I have no interest in having them “punt” a game or two.

      @ Raf:
      I was just thinking along the same lines- don’t give Girardi any ideas. He likes to lose battles to win wars. I mean, we’ve already seen Nix start a game this series.

      Pretty big comeback win today. Just play the games. Don’t screw around with the karma.
