Well, it goes without saying that last night's game didn't exactly go as planned
. Hughsie's first couple starts haven't gone as planned either - he's 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA. Will he turn it around tonight? Can Cano get one measly hit or at least get plunked so he can get on base?
Time shall tell!Lineup
No Jorgie in there tonight, as Matso Ball Soup needed to get a game in.
Joba is still with his father, but ol' Harlan's condition is improving:
After several difficult days, my father is feeling much better. He is still in the critical care unit of the hospital and more tests await him, but he is off the ventilator and breathing on his own. Each day he's acting more and more like himself, and he's even giving people grief -- myself included -- because the hospital doesn't carry Yankees games on television.
As for his return, there's no clear answer on that. Girardi said it could be as early as this weekend, but that isn't certain.
I'm out of the game myself tonight - no live bloggin', but I'll try to get a game wrap up later on in the eve.
Hopefully one that begins with the word "Winalicious."Update 7:19pm
: Last night's long reliever, Jonathan "Albondigas" Albaladejo has been sent to AAA to make room for Edwin Ramirez.Update 8:55pm (top sixth)
: Melky just struck out with the bases loaded to end the inning. Grumbllllllllle. Hughes is looking good though and the score is held at 1-1, 4 hits per team.Update 9:07pm (bottom sixth):
So much for that Hughsie comment - the O's have knocked him out after putting 2 more runs on the board. LTH will come in with one out and men on second and third.Update 9:25pm (bottom sixth again)
: Things got totally out of control there, lovelies. LTH couldn't keep things under control and the score skyrocketed to 8-1. Woops...
