Andy’s Turn

While we all work to process the Xavier Nady trade (my analysis of the deal as initially reported here, my thoughts on the reconfigured deal in several comments starting here), the Yankees have a game to win. Joba did his part last night, time for Andy and the offense to step up this afternoon.

As for the reinforcements from Pittsburgh, I expect they won’t arrive until tomorrow at the earliest as everyone needs to take physicals to make the trade official, but with the bullpen largely rested, the Yankees won’t miss Marte (not that they really need him in the first place), and it’s probably best to let Nady take his first Yankee at-bats against the lefty Lester tomorrow rather than against Tim Wakefield’s knuckleball this afternoon.
