With two men on and no outs in the sixth inning of Friday night’s game (a game that was unwatchable, by the way — hey Ron Washington, it’s only midnight, why don’t you change pitchers again?!), Joe Girardi turned to David Robertson, with the Yankees clinging to a 5-3 lead. Although inherited runner [...]
Much has been made recently of the relative struggles of the Yankee pitching staff. Sure, it’s nothing in comparison to what Texas is going through, but the Yankees are still waiting on Andy Pettitte to return from injury, for one of AJ Burnett or Javier Vazquez [...]
Both Boone Logan and David Robertson got off to rocky starts with the Yankees in 2010.
Logan couldn’t find the strikezone before being sent down to Scranton. Robertson couldn’t get anyone out. All of this now seems like it happened a long time ago.
I’ve already dicussed Boone Logan’s resurgence and he did pitch [...]
A TALE OF TWO BOONES
Not all that long ago, I think we all wanted Boone Logan gone from the Yankees as soon as possible. The lefty appears to have turned a corner in his second time up with the Yankees. In his first stint, he had an .861 OPS against and had more walks [...]
Alright, so it appears that Joba Chamberlain has lost the ever important eighth inning role. Frankly, it’s about time…but not for the reasons you’d think.
Obviously, Chamberlain hasn’t performed well as of late and taking him out of high leverage situations is a good idea. Until he proves different, Joba shouldn’t be used in [...]
If there’s one area of concern on the 2010 Yankees it’s been the bullpen, despite yesterday’s fine effort. More specifically, the problem has been the bridge to Mariano Rivera, who at age 40 is remarkably having one of his best seasons. I’ll go through the issues one by one and then [...]
Currently, the Yankee bullpen boasts a 4.15 FIP and a 4.35 xFIP. When compared across the two leagues, both numbers are fairly average, however, it should be noted that each figure is somewhat illusory. In reality, Joba Chamberlain – 2.25 FIP and 3.15 xFIP – and Mariano Rivera – 2.79 FIP and [...]
Despite some O’Neill Theory action in the ninth inning, there was another very bright spot in last night’s 6-3 loss against the Phillies.
Now, I never thought I’d say this, but Boone Logan was great last night. He pitched 2.2 innings of scoreless ball, striking out three, walking one (IBB), and inducing four grounders and [...]
Since the Yankees re-signed Chad Gaudin yesterday, there had to be some sort of “casualty” on the Yankee roster. It turned out that Shane Lindsay was Designated for Assignment and Boone Logan was sent packing to Scranton. I think this is something just about everyone in the Yankee blogosphere is happy about.
The lefty’s [...]
The banged-up Yankee roster had to resort to using Javier Vazquez as a long reliever last night. I actually give Joe Girardi a lot of credit for foresight – he skipped Javier in the rotation in part to take a start away from his worst starting pitcher, but also in part to allow the team [...]
