Matsui’s gone for three months or so (and who knows what we get when he returns), Sheff’s gone, Rj’s flailing and, if we are to believe the experts, quite possibly ailing as well. Johnny Damon’s banged up too, and given the outfield situation, there seems little opportunity for rest in the foreseeable future. Any one of these traumas would be disturbing; taken together, they have left many jamming down repeatedly on the panic button while pondering the potential demise of the Bombers. Take Rob Neyer: “If it ends, this is how: with an old roster destroyed by injuries, sentiment and infirmity.” Ouch. His opinion: the Yanks need to make a move, to plug at least one of their holes before the whole ship starts an unrecoverable list to port. Others believe the team can stand pat, holding on for a couple of months, treading water with a still-impressive lineup, while Sheff and Unit regroup. It seems to us a move is called for, though there’s no way we give away the store (ie, Philip Hughes). Anyway, it’s going to be an interesting couple of weeks.
