Jim Baumbach shows he's more accurate than the MLB.com guys

"Wang's 17th win was in jeopardy until the end. Torre had to manage his bullpen in a close game for the first time since Mariano Rivera was shut down last week because of his tight elbow."
  • This passage from Baumbach's Newsday column today on the 3-2 Yankee-Baltimore game gives you several facts along with crucial context that MLB.com fellows were apparently too busy to ascertain or communicate. This was the FIRST game Farnsworth saved since Mo went out on Sept. 1. AND, Joe needed to MANAGE it.
Separately, it's just funny that Farnsworth's homerun is mentioned at the end of articles I've been reading, whereas if it had been Mo's homerun, it would've run right up top. So, Farnsworth's a lucky dude.

  • Jim Baumbach has a funny hobby....
