The Yankees could not ask for a worse start to the second half. (Well, a loss tonight would make it worse, but god forbid.) Chien-Ming Wang has been placed on the 15-day DL with a sore shoulder, leaving the Yankees with exactly two (marginally) healthy starters, Moose and the Unit. Pavano also will need another two weeks.
Cash’s acquisition of Tim Redding (who will take Wang’s start) and Darrel May is looking ever more fortunate, and rumor is another deal is in the works for the Rockies’ Shawn Chacon. None of these options should give Yankee fans any confidence. Feh.
