Its sad I missed another rousing joba debate but I have to add that if you are simply going by stuff: joba doesn’t have the same stuff he had out of the pen in 07 and his stuff as a starter would still be in the top 90th percentile for right handers. Thus I don’t think you can use a stuff argument to put him in the pen. Every starter has better stuff in the pen. Cashmans original argument against joba in the pen is that his iinjury made it so he can’t warm up fast. Clearly just a tactic to avoid joba to pen arguments and thus I take his new stuff with an equal grain of salt. As long as joba throws mid 90s as a starter, which he did in 09 without losing velcocity deep in games, he should get the chance to start. He is going to get cj wilsoned by some team in free agency.
Pat.M. .. Lou made up his own curse words. I still laugh when I think of him swinging the bat and not hitting every ball on the sweet spot. He was a really cool guy, and loved talking baseball with us kids that worked there.
yes , in a way having sori out of the lineup for a few days could be a good thing in the long run. girardi can now much more easily skip past him and go drob, joba, mo and put it off on him not being 100% without setting off the ‘controversy’ alarms at the major media outlets. and as long as it works, you just say, i dont want to mess with what’s working right now…
I missed the boat on tickets due to the 5 pm stubhub cutoff and was too tired to bother going to the stadium to scalp tickets, so I didn’t get to boo jeter I’ll be there today so we’ll see if he can deliver on his 2 HRs. If he doesnt its surely a sign that he is washed up!
Yesterday I was trying to score some cheaps Legends seats, but ran up against the 5 PM cut off ( I was going to get a pair in section 200-something right near 3rd base for 14 dollars as my backup). The tickets for todays game I purchased well in advance and stupidly didnt wait for prices to drop so I paid about 55 a ticket for 2 seats in the same area (200-something near third base).
I havnt gone to a Yankee/Angel game in Anaheim for about 4 years now. The ticket prices here are ridiculous. I paid $150 per ticket between third and left field seats bottom row. It cost me 6 bills for wife and kids. Wish I was there bro.
the price always goes by demand, sos, they wont be anywhere near that cheap for the bosox or mets the next 2 weekends. this is the time to get bargains. it does show that the prices at NYS are too high, and that a tier pricing system is likely in the yankee’s future.
