Pineda done for the season. Ouch.

I must say that I enjoyed that come-back on Saturday. The Red Sox are in trouble. They have no bullpen. Aceves closing? You see what he did on Saturday… 6 batters, no outs. Plus all the injuries. If they are in last place on May 15th, Valentine may be gone. He deserved all the boos [...]
You watched that play and thought, “good, he didn’t hurt himself, that was close.” More than close, too bad.
So Jones, Ibanez, and Nunez will fill in in left. Defensively, the horror, the horror. At least Jones has a nice smile and always seems happy, with his ability to hang on at this point in his [...]
After yesterday’s game someone in that clubhouse better have angrily said, “We just let Carl Pavano beat us! This kind of thing cannot happen.”
Girardi’s move of having Soriano intentionally walking Markakis to get to Jones an unconventional move, one that was dictated by his gut or a hunch. Nope. The “book” says that Soriano has great numbers on Jones so creating a force play where a wild pitch, passed ball, HBP, catcher’s interference, BB plates a [...]
Glad my comments motivated Swisher.
Posada to throw out the first pitch to open the home schedule. Nice touch.
Would be interesting to see Kuroda’s numbers against Pujols.
Garcia should have had the courtesy to pull himself. Wild pitch extravaganza, that was absurd. He needed a designated catcher, a hockey goalie in full pads.
The NYY are not going to have these comebacks versus the Tampa Bays of the world.
Hughes and Garcia have led to fear and trepidation already.
Let me take you back to the seventh inning. No one out. Swish hit by a pitch on the foot. After the agony and the limping he’s on first. Cano laces a double into the corner which seems like it’s taking an eternity to dig out. Swish rounds third, tries [...]
Obviously not happy with the first three games. Girardi intentionally walking a batter in the first inning on defense in the first game of a 162 game schedule is insane. CC can’t get “what’s his name” out now – is that what it’s come to? It’s weird how in baseball sometimes [...]
Not liking what I am seeing with the first three games against the Rays. I know its early but the following issues need to be observed to see if these are annomolies or the begining of trends:
1. CC are the innings catching up? He hasnt looked good in spring and the first start was [...]
