Playing for Pride, Yankees Win 2 of 3 from Rays September 14, 2008

Posted by Pablo Zevallos in September Call-Ups, Tampa Bay Rays.

The Yankees are out of the postseason race, and there’s no use playing for a draft pick when they’re 5 GB in front of the 15th slot (why would you want to do that, anyway?), so it barrels down to playing for pride. The Yankees have played hard the last two games (6-4 and 8-4 wins) after mailing it in the first game (7-1 loss). Either way, it seems like they are now looking to see what they have for 2009. Derek Jeter tied Lou Gehrig’s record for hits at Yankee stadium (more on that in the next post), and A-Rod had his umpteenth straight 100-RBI season. Carl Pavano left with a hip injury (what’s new?) and Mike Mussina, after losing, likely won’t win 20 games this year.

I love Jeter, such heart.
