Yanks Win; Pressure Still On

The Yanks finally put a halt to their skid yesterday. Kei Igawa redeemed himself with a fine outing, Jorge homered, and Mo nailed down the win. This is how things were supposed to work. But the coast is not entirely clear. The pitch that knocked out Jeff Karstens in the first inning of the game actually fractured his leg; no surgery necessary, but the Yanks lose another starter. Also, Johnny’s back is barking. Morre critically, Torre’s job remains in jeopardy. “I think he’s going to wait and see what happens this weekend, and then we’ll see,” said The Boss’s mouthpiece, Howard Rubenstein. So, George is still hovering. A big game today, then. A win will probably quiet the forces of doom. Another loss and all bets are off. Thankfully, Wang will be on the hill.

  • Enjoy the game, everyone. I am off for an all-day work trip, so no baseball. Gah.

    While we are neck-deep in this series, talking about job security, broken legs and slumps, it could be worse.
    St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock was killed in a car crash. Tonight’s game against the Cubs has been postponed.
