There’s a theory making the rounds that the recent sruggles of David Robertson and last night’s blown save by Rafael Soriano is a product of an overworked bullpen that’s running out of gas down the stretch. I’m not so sure I buy that. If you watch the replay, the pitch Soriano gave up the game-tying HR on had plenty of life on it, he just caught too much of the plate and the hitter did a good job getting to a pitch below his knees. Also, let’s not forget Soriano wasn’t even the Closer for over a month to start the season, setting up for Mo in limited appearances until early May. But anytime you have more games than days left in the season, you have to be a bit concerned that the bullpen may wear down. Especially when you’re on a winning streak of mostly tightly played games.
Here’s your lineup, courtesy of LoHud:
1. Jeter SS
2. Suzuki CF
3. A-Rod DH
4. Cano 2B
5. Swisher RF
6. McGehee 1B
7. Nix 3B
8. Jones LF
9. Stewart C
Ivan Nova on the bump, looking to build on his the stellar outing he had facing the (fading) Tampa Bay Rays last week. GO YANKS!!!!
