God Bless CC and its Vanilla Suburbs...
Let's hope our man Chien Ming is on his game today as the Yanks face C.C. Sabathia and try to salvage something positive out of another awful time at the Jake.
Time to get on the stick boys.
Hughes: "His fastball is his best pitch. He has a pretty good curveball, a good changeup and good command when he's pitching. I watched him pitch against Baltimore (last weekend), and he pitched well. He seems to have one bad inning sometimes, but he'll learn to avoid that."
Kennedy: "He just doesn't know how good he is. I read a quote in the paper where he said he has proven he can pitch in the majors. Well, he hasn't proven anything yet. He's going to have to be more aggressive. He needs to be more aggressive early in the count. You want to respect the hitters, but you don't want to over-respect them where you feel you have to be perfect."
Palmer said the key for Hughes and Kennedy is learning to trust their ability and not being afraid to throw strikes.
"Do you want to pitch ahead in the count or do you want to pitch behind? All young pitchers know the answer to that," he said. "But to get yourself to do that is difficult."
So.... will AAA help to address Jim's issues?
By the way, Pete Abraham is of the opinion that Joba is hurt. That's the only explanation for allowing Ross to blow yesterday's game; incidentally, did anyone have a flashback to the 2003 WS?
I'm all for helping Ross get his confidence back after his shitty performance in Chicago, but high leverage 9th innings situations will ruin him.
I saw him and his All-Stars perform in Rome two years ago and it was, far and away, the best live musical experience of my life. I danced myself nearly to injury, unable to give my weary body a rest because the music just grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let me go.
And here you are pushing George Clinton, not twenty-four hours later.
And those waffles look delicious, btw.
Ok, I recognize I don't really know her from Eve, but I have one image in my head from a picture you once posted of you guys at the Stadium and she looked nothing like this.
And given that The Lady Vanishes was just on the other day, I wonder whether I should suspect something...
good hustle by Robby.
First he ---
Wow, Melky, AGAIN!!!
bad news - peteabe has a link to the nyt that posada has a muscle tear in his shoulder and is probably headed to the dl - on paper it doesn't sound to good
(on the other hand, good throw by Molina).
yeah hopefully no one will get moeller off waivers, but some team probably will if nothing else to f with the yanks
and has cmw really turned into a strikeout pitcher?
Joe Joe Dimag-gio, we want him on our team
It's excruciating to watch.
I mean, look how pathetic this offense is WITH Jorge, without him its really scary...
Jesus H. Christ, I love that.
Thank God for Andy and Chien-Ming.
Oh, and, DAMMIT (Posada) and Wheeeeew (Em).
