Last night was fair weather, foul result. Today we’ve got foul weather….and let’s hope. The Bombers look to bounce back from last night’s frustrating loss. Shawn Chacon, who has struggled mightily in the early going, takes the mound against the potentially dominant fireballer Daniel Cabrera. With the frosty temperatures, chopping at his heater with wood doesn’t sound like much fun. (Jorge might want to try gloves.) The young right-hander has shown flashes of brilliance (his last start against the Angels), bizarre mediocrity (10 k’s and 9 walks against the Devil Rays the start before), and plain awfulness (his debacle against the Sox). In the interests of fair play (this is YFvSF, afterall) we’ll take the version of Cabrera the Red Sox faced. Anyway, we hope they can get this one in between the rain drops, and that Mr. Chacon is in full mettle. C’mon Yanks! Turn this this ship around!
