Girardi Doesn't Appear Ready to Give Up on Season

When the Yankees spent $503 million this offseason on some of the biggest names in baseball, it was expected by most of their fans that they'd at least be holding a wild card spot come the 2014 All Star Break. 

However, due to a never ending list of injuries as well as a complete lack of production from Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran that presumption has been ripped apart, something that's caused some to see the year as lost.

Despite that, team Manager Joe Girardi is attempting to keep his head up, telling The Star Ledger's Kevin Manahan after last night's loss to the Orioles that the Yanks are still in it in spite of everything that's happened to them.

"With everything we have had go wrong, we are still in it," Girardi said. "That's the big thing. We have to take advantage of that when we get back to work on Friday."

As of now, the 47-47 Bombers are just 3 1/2 games behind the Mariners for the second wild card, making #28's statement completely true.

Still, considering that their current rotation contains two rookies, a struggling veteran, and a youngster who has never started consistently in his career you have to wonder how in it they actually are, as things just don't seem to be looking up for them going into the annual week off.
