    thats our roto, Joba in the pen (hopefully)

    anyway, Im not here to argue anything is anyone willing to go to the site
    i still dont know why people trust Phil Hughes who sucked last year over Joba Chamberlain who in his only 2 starts did fantastic with one of his starts being AT BOSTON AND THROWING A 7 INNING SHUTOUT.

    He should be a starter because our bullpen is solid with talent and guys waiting to be used from the minors. Good starters like Joba don't come around very often.

    IF JOBA GETS HURT AGAIN AS A STARTER BECAUSE OF ARM TROUBLE OR SOMETHING WERE THE AMMOUNT OF INNINGS HAS CASUED THE INJURY, THEN YOU PUT HIM BACK IN THE BULLPEN FOR GOOD.

    IF YOU MESS WITH HIS ARM GOING LONG INNINGS AND SHORT INNINGS THEN THATS WERE HE IS ALWAYS GOING TO GET HURT. YOU HAVE TO KEEP PITCHERS IN A CONSTANT ROUTINE.

    Joba Chamberlain-8th inning

    Mariano Rivera-9th inning

    best 1-2 combo in the MLB



    and Hughes is nasty he just needs to have a healthy season and one where he isnt asked to carry a huge load. he came up ( late 07) and was the no.3 pitcher thats tough on a 20 year old last year he was also the 3 pitcher and wasnt experience and got injured as he was starting to turn things around watch him this year being the 4 or 5 pitcher watch him become a sick pitcher.

    remember the no hitter he had going in the 7th when he pulled his hamstring and had to leave? Joba was nothing close to that as a starter.

    Phil is headed in the wrong direction. I was his biggest fan and was hopping he would be our Ace for the future, but last season was a wake up call. He struggled big time. I expected him to, but not to that point. he did not win a game. Hell even Kei Igawa did better than him.
    I also lost faith in IPK as well. he is not a power pitcher and with his repertoire he ain't going far i am sure.

    Hughes and Kennedy still need alot of time to develop, They throw so flat at times... And Hughes has a Great curveball, Who gives a **** though. Put Joba in the pen and have hughes as your #5. Kennedy can spot start.

    1. CC
    2. Burnett
    3. Wang
    4. Pettitte
    5. Hughes

    Pen
    1. Rivera
    2. Chamberlain


    Thats Filthy.

    I expect both New York Baseball Teams to do Really well this year!

    No, thats not the best 1-2 in baseball its second best. To the Mets they have two closers on their team. And I 100% agree on hughes

    Kenedy is done I agree with that. He doesn't have MLB stuff. He is a hard worker but thats it

    J.J Putz is overrated and i'd rather have Joba and M is better then K-Rod. so yea we better.

    and yea we havent been this good since 03 when we had a great rotation now that we have one again its gonna be hard to beat us.

    We also were supposed to be great on paper when we signed Pavano and Jarred Wright. They were saying in the paper that the Yankees secured their rotation for years to come. We all know how that turned out.

    Wait and see how CC and AJ will do in NY before claiming we have a great rotation. We are great ON PAPER only. CC can't pitch for sh!t in the playoffs and AJ hasn't really been there. He got signed only based on his performance against us.
