The homestand from hell continues.
Yes, this team’s solution to fix their putrid and broken offense is to force a 36 year old 1B with an OBP of .289 into the lineup in the outfield, a position he has never played in the majors. In fact, he last saw time in the outfield in the minors in 2001 when he was a spry 24 year old.
The good news is that one day soon it will be over.
No official word on how the Yankees are getting Pettitte onto the 25 man roster although I’m assuming Brennan Boesch is going back down to AAA.
