Of the many current injuries in Major League Baseball, a number of them might have been avoided with a slower progression back to the field. Others appear to be exacerbations waiting to happen.
Jerry Recco’s first update of the morning was more about losing then winning, beginning with the two local baseball teams, who between them couldn’t manage a win over the weekend.
Coco Crisp collected the game-winning hit as the Yankees lost in 12 innings to the Oakland A’s. The Athletics completed a four-game sweep over the Yankees.
The Yankees have lost three in a row to the Athletics. They lost 2-1 on Saturday night and are facing the prospect of a four-game sweep on Sunday.
Jerry “Rello” Recco provided a quality cut of Yankees radio play-by-play man John Sterling, who had a good call for Curtis Granderson’s 1st inning, 2-run home run last night. It was almost a perfect call, but not quite because he screwed up the count.
Boomer & Craig finished off today’s radio program by taking a call from loyal and legendary listener, Lou from Staten Island…
Craig stayed up to watch the end of the Yankees’ 15-inning, 4-1 victory over the Orioles last night in Baltimore — and he was sure happy he did. Not only was he rewarded by witnessing a Yankees win, but according to him, he saw what could be a season-changing triumph.
Boomer & Craig have not hidden the fact that they have all sorts of love for Tigers third baseman Brandon Inge, so when Jerry began his first update of the show with a play-by-play cut that shed Inge in a less-than-flattering light, the “Dynamic Radio Duo” took exception.
Brandon Inge, who we all like, hit a walk-off home run yesterday for the Detroit Tigers against the Texas Rangers — and Boomer & Craig could not be happier.
