In response to crix's comment:
From Mother's Day to Father's Day....
The Red Sox top the American League.
NYY crashing and burning into 3rd and most likely 4th soon.
Youk back to the DL. (big surprise there)
Teixeria batting .151 with more wrist issues.
Playing with injuries is part of the game, that the Yankees have managed to remain this close with the ragtag offense they have is pretty amazing.
But honestly I would rather them finish in last place this season than to see Alex Rodriquez in a Yankee uniform at 3rd base.
I don't what the time table is, when MLB will lower the hammer on those implicated in the steroid mill out of Miami. I suspect that they want more than just the testimony of Bosch the slime bag who ran the clinic. Delivery records, emails etc.. to bolster their case.
Also would seem likely that the customers paid cash to eliminate a paper trail.
Not to mention the idea that in the case of Rodriquez MLB will be going after a player with very very deep pockets, resources to defend himself against any and all charges.
If they go after him I hope their case is rock solid.
There is still another half of a season to play Granderson, Jeter, Nunez, Cervelli if not implicated will all be returning shortly. Pineda has been impressive and is on the clock.
Buchholz likely onto the DL. Not a question of will there be new injuries, but when? And to every team. Which team going forward will be more adversely affected in 2013 is unknowable.
Also the trade deadline coming up, still too early in my book to write any team in the ALE off.
Why they play the games.
