Still up in the air

Nothing is set in stone yet. The Yankees still need a win or a Red Sox loss to clinch. Hopefully that changes tonight.

Other issues:

  • A.J. Burnett certainly has pitched terribly, but whether he takes the mound for the Yankees in October is still up in the air. Jon Paul Morosi inexplicably (because he’s usually terrible) and astutely comes to the conclusion that he should not.
  • Just a note on why I didn’t do a game story last night. Um, I was too disgusted to watch the rest of the game after Burnett defecated on the mound continued to serve up homers to the Blue Jays.
  • Regardless of who is on the mound in the playoffs, this team needs to hit. That means not getting dominated by guys like Marc Rzepczynski and his 5.56 ERA. Work the count, get on base, and hit the ball out of the ballpark. Lather, rinse, repeat.
