Good morning and Happy Tuesday! Boomer and Craig got rolling this morning talking some Yankee baseball. And all is not well in Yankee land right now.
The Yanks suffered perhaps their worst defeat of the season to the Blue Jays last night. Leading by two entering the 9th inning, the Yanks coughed up the lead and eventually lost in 11 innings. Rafael Soriano, who has done a solid job replacing Mariano Rivera as the closer for most of the year, had the latest in a string of rough outings in the 9th last night. All of a sudden, the Bombers’ division lead is down to just three games.
If there is a positive to take out of this, Craig points out that the close race makes every game from now until the end of the season must-see baseball. And who doesn’t love a postseason atmosphere in September?
The guys also spend some time addressing the New York football Giants’ rising injury concerns. Chris Canty was placed on the P.U.P. list and will miss six weeks of the season. All of a sudden that Giants defense is starting to wear a little thin. Plus the Jets traded Wayne Hunter to the St. Louis in exchange for Jason Smith, who is essentially the Rams’ version of Hunter, but with a higher salary.
Plus you’ll hear a little bit about the Boomer & Carton All Stars softball outing in Glen Ridge last night. All this and more as we get it started on this Tuesday morning!
