The Yankees playoff hopes are dashed, the Mariano Rivera bobbleheads went missing until the middle of the game and the team looks as if they had given up. There is good news after 158 games of despair. The Yankees feel bad about the bobblehead disaster, so bad that they are offering free tickets to a 2014 Yankees game.
The catch is the usual: You can’t go on Opening Day and you can’t go on Old Timers Day for free. On the bright side, Yankees didn’t say anything about games vs. the Boston Red Sox and the New York Mets. So of course, you can always try for those two series.
NOTES & NEWS:
— Phil Hughes is making his final start at Yankee Stadium tonight, most likely as a New York Yankee. Saying that Hughes had a disappointing 2013 season is an understatement. It hasn’t been an easy road, and it’s really come to a decision where Yankee Stadium isn’t a great place for Hughes to pitch. It’s not his type of ballpark.
— Travis Hafner was activated from the 60-day DL today. As a corresponding move, the Yankees placed CC Sabathia on the 60-day DL, retroactive to September 21. Sabathia has a Grade 2 left hamstring strain.
— There are only a couple of games left, but you can always buy Yankees tickets through us even when they’re on the road.
