    Yesterday, I wrote about how successful Rafael Soriano has been since he was installed as the closer for the New York Yankees. That post tried to mitigate some of the loss of an injury to the best closer in the history of the game. That was the rosier side of the bullpen injury story. The flip side of the injuries to Mariano Rivera and David Robertson is more high leverage events for the likes of Cory Wade and Boone Logan. Wade, in particular, seems to be wilting under the exposure. He had a dynamic start to the season. He was compiling amazing strikeout totals. But suddenly, he seems like a mop up kind of reliever at best and his lack of pure stuff has been even more…well…lacking.
