mark my words yankees will repeat
I'm a Joba to the rotation guy. He has about 4 pitches. He has a better ERA in his starts than Phil Hughes (who is a two pitch pitcher).
mark my words yankees will repeat
Yankees are #1 at the halfway point!!!!
All-star game tonight, check it out everyone... I'm pretty sure they will have some sort of tribute for both Bob and George.
Joba needs to go to AAA and straighten his ass up, he's been horrible this year.
Kerry Wood can pitch in the 7th inning.
Joba is now a random middle reliever. With some work he can be back to the dominate pitcher he was. Just remember how great he was in clutch spots, he needs that fire back. If not then trade him.
can you fellas say repeat i sure can, i see it coming
The one advantage this year is that we have a stronger rotation.
Hughes has established himself.
Javi Vazquez is a solid 4th man in the rotation who chews up innings.
The only worry is our bull pen. Hughes and Joba were so clutch in our bull pen last year that it makes you wonder if Girardi will make Hughes a bull pen pitcher come playoffs. I hope not but we'll see.
Granderson's swing has killed the Tigers and the Royals. I'm hoping he stays hot for the rest of the season, things would be alot better if his bat stays fire.
It feels like everytime i see Jete its a GIDP
Swish is having a career year. Tex is having an off year, still top 5 in the AL in RBis. I hope Alex also doesn't have injury issues with his calf or hip, we really need his bat as well.
But damn...Robinson Cano. damn, what a year that guy's having. Defintely our second baseman for years to come.
As for the rotation, CC is CC, AJ is inconsistent, but I would want him to pitch in the postseason.
Andy is still injured, I'm just wondering when he's coming back and if he finishes the season in a strong way
Javy has a dead arm. I hope everyone noticed this...dude usually throws 91-92 mph on the fastball, right now he's hitting 88-89 tops..so he has to rely on his breaking pitches alot more which leads to higher pitch counts in less innings. We can't afford this.
Mosely has filled in nicely for Pettite tho.
By the way, Curtis Granderson is worth a tenth of a win more than Johnny Damon. And plays terrific D; that's the one thing that's been consistent about him. Just something to think about.
The Yankees have won 7 out of 8 games when Gardner leads off, Gardner is batting over 320 as a lead off hitter and Jeter has been a ralley killer/double play machine.
Seriously Jeter has to drop the pride and take one for the team and bat lower in the order for once. He is no longer a lead off hitter if he hits teh way he has. He has hit into 17 double plays! That is a league lead I think.
Berkman in front of Jeter is good so that teams won't just walk A Rod to face the slumping Jeter and Berkman gets on base so Jeter will always have a chance to advance the runner.
Granderson has to bat last, I dont care how good he has been lately, he has been horrible for 90% of this season, you can't trust him to not strike out multiple times in a game and kill rallies. Plus being really fast is perfect as a 9th hitter so he can be a 2nd lead off man.
Girardi might change the lineup like this sooner or later.
Wallace Matthews on ESPN newyork wrote a great article about exactly what I said and it makes perfect sense. This team either scores 12 runs or 0. We are an inconsistent lineup that should score more runs. We have to change the lineup in order to stay ahead in first place.
