The Yankees lost the game, but won the series in Minnesota. Mike Mussina left last night in the third inning with a hamstring strain.
That’s the bad and the good and the very bad. At least the very bad doesn’t sound all that bad.
“I don’t limp and I can still touch my toes,” Mussina said. “So it’s not bad.”
Good. Well, as good as bad can get. And I believe that makes everything okay.
It’s certainly not okay that guys keep going down with hamstring injuries. First is was Chien-Ming Wang and then Hideki Matsui and now Mussina.
I’m not a doctor or a trainer or even a player anymore, but I do have two unstrained hamstrings that aren’t doing much these days since I only run when I smell pizza. I would gladly loan them out if they would help the team because first and foremost I am a Yankee. And that is very good.
