According to Bryan Hoch, Alfredo Aceves’ shoulder felt better today after a 20-pitch bullpen session.
In addition, from PA, we learn that Damaso Marte was throwing 88 mph meatballs last night (he gave up 2 homers). Marte has now given up 3 ER over 4 2/3 IP with Scranton. He usually throws around [...]
Here are three quick items to start the day:
Streets of Blood trailer Yesterday, the Yankees defeated the Orioles, 2-1, thanks to good pitching by Andy Pettitte and a walk-off home run by Hideki Matsui. I also have to point out the great Yankee defense exhibited throughout, especially in the top of inning [...]
After last night’s eighth inning implosion, the state of the bullpen is the issue on the minds of most Yankees fans. Before anyone mentions Joba Chamberlain, I want to preempt that by pointing out the atrocious starting pitching in the first two games against Boston. Forget about the point that a [...]
-I’m already hearing reports from people who went to Sunday’s game that the Yanks are putting tarps up around the facility to try to cut down on the wind tunnel effect. Although their efforts apparently weren’t enough to prevent the ballpark’s latest absurdity, a broken bat HR by Tex off Philly starter Cole Hamels in [...]
This morning, I saw the following from Pete Abe, and it just struck me as indicative of how most Yankees fans see Damaso Marte:
Failure to Launch divx (Meanwhile, did you ever notice that nobody — fans or media — ever asks about a bad player when he is injured? We quiz [...]
Peter Abraham is reporting that Damaso Marte has been put on the DL and Anthony Claggett has been brought up. I guess some people owe Joe Girardi an apology. So far, the Yankees have lost their #2 starter, their 3B-man and cleanup hitter, their starting RF, and both of their 8th inning guys. It [...]
I logged on tonight to write about the bullpen, and the overreaction of some people to a few bad outings from people such as Jose Veras and Damaso Marte. I noticed that Joe P. from RAB made the point I wanted to make, so I will just post his thoughts and then expound upon [...]
I rip on George King frequently, so I feel that it is necessary to acknowledge when he makes a fair point. This is what he said today about the Yankees bullpen:
But the biggest question was the bullpen, because outside of Marte, there wasn’t a lot of experience.
Bruney is being asked to work [...]
Here are the notables from last night’s contest against the Red Sox:
1) Austin Jackson hit a grand slam off of Devern Hansack in the 8th inning, extending the Yankees lead to 7-1 with a shot down the left field line. He is at .333/.385/.667, and is tied for the team lead with 3 HR’s [...]
A few recent events have me thinking about last year’s trade in which the Yankees sent phenom Jose Tabata along with Ross Ohlendorf, Jeff Karstens, and Dan McCutcheon to the Pirates for Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte. Firstly, Bill Madden mentioned the deal in an article on Marte and Phil Coke:
In that respect, [...]
