Hard Luck


Yeah, Hard Luck Hiroki didn’t pitch poorly. It was that damn 3rd run he gave up before getting the final out in the 7th. Otherwise, man, he pitched another competent game. But the Yankees had Chris Sale on their hands, a formidable, hard-throwing lefty. They scored a run and would have had another if the home plate umpire didn’t blow a call at the plate. When your team doesn’t score those moments are critical because the Yanks scored another run in the 9th but Alfonso Soriano whiffed with the tying run on base and that was that: another loss. And the downward spiral continues.

Final Score: White Sox 3, Yanks 2.

Listening to MLB radio this AM... they were wondering how many guys one could name who for sure will be on the Yanks' 2014 roster. Maybe 4 or 5 for sure; half a dozen free agents, a couple of probable retirements,the remainder journeymen.

And with free agency declining in value (with so many teams signing key guys to extensions), even if the Yanks have some $$$, it could be a long time until we're back as legit competition.

2) I bet the Red Sox fans felt that last year too.

[3] Yeah, but the Sox were able to do a "clearing house" trade last year with the Dodgers allowing them to reset the payroll and roster. I don't think the Yankees will have that opportunity.

Having represented a number of people who plead guilty and having been someone who went through the process as an accused, my advice to A-Rod would have been to admit the facts, even if they don't give you the deal you want. This way your contrition stays out front and your sentencing argument becomes more buoyant. The way he did it, deny and look/sound like a schmuck, he lacks credibility when asking for justice. His lawyers might have taken the traditional route. Too bad. Or they may have had a difficult client.
