Yankee stadium is awash in mud, rain, and concern.
More and more Yankees are injuring themselves while playing catch or gin rummy. Now Pineda has a shoulder muscle under duress. Hmmmm. Related to surgical arm? Carl Pavano anyone?
Is this my prediction coming true? That Pineda will never pitch for the Yankees ( if I am off by only a handful of starts over a career, I am not wrong ).
Nova is gone. Phellps and Nūno as 4th and 5th in the rotation? Three no names ( including Leroux ….the more I read, the more there is no reason to be high on his prospects….) in the bull pen?
Ellsbury ( by far our best player ) with something " barking " already.
Soriano a total embarrassment. The one guy whom you don't want to see hitting in a clutch situation, if you are a Yankee fan. Strike outs, flailing in the dirt. Or hard smacked perfect double play balls. His failures are becoming predictable.
Jerter with no speed and limited range. And behind him a bag of .127 hitters.
Our sand bag walls are decaying and slipping. The call to the national guard has been issued, but we are "on hold."
Soon, I fear, the flood we have all anticipated.
A few more walls crumble, and the torrent overwhelms.
