Well at least Teix is good for something, right? After that hit to Bobby Wilson last night, word around the NFL Draft today is that Rex Ryan and the Jets are looking to take him in the 5th or 6th round. With the way he's hitting right now (.117/.274/.250) Teix might want to consider that career change.
At some point somebody is going to have to explain to me why Joba was in the game against 2 dangerous lefties last night in the 8th inning, especially one, Morales, who completely owns him (4-6 w/ a HR career before last night). I understand he is now the official setup man for Mo, but Joe's got 2 lefties in the 'pen out there and so far Joba and Mo have been the 2 guys with the most appearances so far this season. Why not use Marte for the 8th and then maybe Joba for the 9th?
2-game losing streak? No problem. The stopper, Andrew Eugene Pettitte is on the hill today. It's all good.
