Kuroda hit the wall like this last September. I wonder due to his age and miles on his arm he's going through a dead arm period. Obviously it's not the right time for this to be happening for the Yankees especially with Hughes' rotation spot being a huge ? mark and Sabathia. Good thing Pettitte seemed to righted the ship in his last 3 or 4 starts. Anyway for the Yankees to win 90 games they need to go 20-9 in their last 29 games. That means Oakland has to go 15 and 15 in their final 30 games for the Yankees to tie the final spot. TB could go 15-16 and still win 90 games. And that's only to win 90 games. Basically its going to be an extremely hard road for the Yankees to make the playoffs this year. They're not dead but they can't afford to lose anymore series.
