The All-Star hype is gearing up in New York, but the Bronx was more interested in the Yankees this morning.
“It’s disappointing to go into the (All-Star) break with a loss,” said someone in the group gathered around Juan Carlos’s coffee cart. “We had a chance to pull closer to the top, but it just didn’t happen.”
“I think the break is coming at a good time for us,” said someone else. “The guys need to get away from the grind for a few days. They should come back fresh and ready to make a run at the division.”
They all nodded.
“We’re in pretty good shape,” someone added. “It looks like Damon and Matsui will be back soon and we’re only six games out of first with 67 to play.”
“Yeah,” someone else shot.
