I touched on this briefly at different points throughout the offseason on stuff like this, but now that MLBTR has released their Yankees 2012 contract issues post, I figured I’d expand my thoughts.
Via RAB per Ben Shpigel, Pedro Feliciano‘s second MRI revealed what the team is referring to as a “damaged shoulder.” Without knowing more we can only surmise what may happen, though it probably means another lefty reliever on the shelf for the better part of the season. Along with Damaso [...]
We’re all focused on the present. The Yankees have a bunch of pending transactions. They’ve made an offer to Derek Jeter; they’ll probably do the same to Mariano Rivera and Cliff Lee shortly. I’m sure there are other signings and trades that the front office is mulling over right now, too. But what about next [...]
Joe Girardi provided the Yankee beat writers with three little nuggets of news about Yankee pitchers this morning. Mark Feinsand has the scoop:
Phil Hughes will be skipped one start in the Yankees rotation to limit his innings, Joe Girardi said before Wednesday’s series finale against Baltimore. Dustin Moseley will start Sunday in Texas, [...]
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 [...]
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News ran a piece today in which he graded the Yankees. I’m going to tell you which ones I agree and disagree with.
Let’s just get the ones I agree with out of the way. I agree with Mo’s, Andy’s, Gardner’s, CC’s, Marte’s, Rodriguez’s, Thames’s, Vazquez’s, Burnett’s, [...]
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 [...]
Going into last night’s game, a quick glance at Damaso Marte’s numbers would make most fans think he was having a reasonably good year for a Lefty specialist. 7 IP, 3.86 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. But fans who watch the games closely and remember his contributions will have a different impression of those same [...]
Starting to get tired of having to write game recaps involving the bullpen betraying the team.
Of course, the ‘pen may not have even had a chance to cough up the lead had Home Run Javy Vazquez not given up five earned runs in a mere three innings pitched, [...]

When Joe Girardi removed David Robertson for Damaso Marte after just one batter during last night’s contest, the cries of “overmanaging” that first surfaced early last season and peaked during the playoffs began to emanate from the Yankee faithful. As I noted on Twitter, I hate that [...]
