The Almighty Save

While things are going good for the Yanks right now, Monday’s game was quite frustrating. Torre insists upon using Rivera in any situation that is deemed a “save.” 2 outs in the 9th, up by 4, 2 runners on, Huff coming up. Enter Sandman. Yeah Farnsworth was struggling, but Huff hits Rivera well. If Farnsworth can’t hold a 4 run lead with 2 outs, why is he even on our team? Why not let him face Huff at least? Even a home run and the Yankees are still leading. Rivera had thrown a lot of pitches the night before and using him would mean we’d be without Rivera, Joba, Farnsworth, and Vizcaino Tuesday night. Luckily Tuesday night was a blowout, but why go to Rivera so soon? Oh right, cause it’s a “save situation.”
