Yankees Fans Time to Panic?
- Updated: May 13, 2014
The 2014 New York Yankees remind me of a saying that I read once. It went, “old knees don’t get better, they just get older.”
Once again the Yankees are an old, tired, punchless club and that fact was no more evident than it was Monday night.
Carlos Beltran got hurt taking swings in the batting cage during the game. You read that right, he didn’t get hurt making a diving catch or breaking up a double play. He got hurt IN THE BATTING CAGE.
Ichiro Suzuki didn’t play Monday night after hurting his back on an outfield play on Sunday. Pitcher Shawn Kelley has been shelved since last Tuesday with a bad back. Maybe the Yankees slogan this season should be, “We’re Back.”
Mark Texeira is nursing a groin strain and pitcher C.C. Sabathia has an inflamed knee. Surprisingly, Derek Jeter has remained healthy so far, but how long will that last?
The Yankees are 19-18 this season and after spending $470 everyone expected more. But when you have an old roster, should you expect less?
After a disappointing 2013 season, the Yankees are once again struggling. Yankees fans, this is getting old…
