Bruney throws another inning

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Jul 14, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

We interrupt this All-Star Game coverage with an update on Brian Bruney.

He started today for Trenton and pitched an inning against Binghamton: 1 1 0 0 0 0. 15 pitches.

That five rehab appearances for Bruney. Typically the Yankees like to see their relievers through consecutive days and/or two innings before they bring them back. So Bruney is getting close.

    Can’t wait til Bruney is back. That will be the icing on the bullpen cake!

    He would br a huge addition to the ‘pen in the second half. The Yanks still need another starter though. Not to mention, if they keep scoring 2 or fewer runs every third game, they’re not going anywhere anyway.

    The bullpen this year has been great; if we can replace Hawkins with Bruney, as nice a guy as Hawkins might be, then that’s like icing on the icing on the cake.

    That’s great news on Brian I hope he recovers quickly it just makes our assets bigger and strengthens our pen choices.

    Meanwhile at Arkum Asylum

    Joel Sherman:Alex RodriguezAlex Rodriguez , who played with Garcia in Seattle, has privately been pushing Yankee management to be serious about the veteran righty because he thinks so much of Garcia’s fortitude. Garcia is 6-2 with a 3.11 ERA in nine postseason starts.

    back to papelbum… he is as classless as many of his teammates.. enough with the manny being manny BS, he is a fool, youkilis is a knumskull, and pedroia the same..

    Papelbum to be considered in Mo’s league must keep up his performance for at least 8 more yrs… Think that will happen?????????

    i don’t consider Papelbon and Mariano in the same ballpark. that team won’t have the chance to put that many rings on his finger either, being that their two big bashers are on the decline. they’ll continue to be good, but not dominant.

    but anyways, back to BRIAN BRUNEY……i hope we get the new-school, thin Bruney back. that Bruney was awesome.

    I posted some stats for both Papelbum and Mariano in the thread on closing.

    The guy is a brainless arrogant Massengil.

    Bruney looked pretty good today here for the Thunder. Much better than the other night. He gave up one hit and that’s it. Real quick half-inning. And he’s a good guy. Got mobbed by about 150 campers who didn’t have a clue who he was outside the clubhouse after the game. Signed something for just about every single one of them too!

    He is really looking thin and in shape compared to last year. When he was outside today in jeans and a tee, he looked good. Not sure the whiskers on his face are gonna fly back in NYC though haha. Probably get himself all shaved up after the AS break before he has to go back up.

    Check out Mike Ashmore’s blog to read some good quotes from him and baout him.

    thunderfangabe -

    Were you at Saturday night’s game? We were. We saw Bruney’s first inning and thought he threw a few too many pitches, I thought he looked pretty good. When he missed, it was at least down. And he got a 1-2-3 inning. First K was nasty. We left before the 9th, though, and only heard it on the radio. I was surprised he pitched the 9th, because he had thrown quite a few pitches in the 8th.

    I was also impressed with the way he looked (kept his slim physique) and he didn’t seem to be having any trouble at all with his foot.

    Glad he had a good outing today.

    what bout humberto sanchez? whats the status on him?

  12. thunderfangabe July 14th, 2008 at 8:15 pm

    I was there Saturday night as well. He did have a little trouble, but he didn’t do too terrible. Maybe the jitters of a start in AA…just kidding! haha

    I think he was supposed to go 2 innings that night…or 40 pitches. I think they cut him off at 37 before he started another batter. Looked better today though.
