Nick Johnson is one of the good guys. When I covered the Yankees, he was one of the guys I enjoyed talking to. I thought he turned the corner as far as staying healthy. Now I’m pulling for a speedy recovery after he broke his leg today.
John Maine had a rocky outing today. Way too many pitches for the innings. Willie Randolph said every once in a while Maine loses his concentration and gets wild. That’s what happened. If we’re keeping score in the competition for the fourth starter job in the playoff rotation, based on their last starts, Steve Trachsel has the edge.
They’ll each get one more after Trachsel’s start Sunday.
