“I can’t be deceptive when I am posting your number set.”
That makes no sense. It’s about interpretation.
“Hughes’ previous high was 146 innings in 2006, and it is generally thought you can go +30 over the previous high.”
Except he was injured in both 2007 and 2008, which probably took a toll on his ability to build up arm strength going forward, and as a result, it is reasonable to question whether the general rule applies, as it is in thinking that the jump in his IP from 2009 to 2010 may have caused his dead arm at the beginning of 2011.
To call that deceptive is beyond strange, it’s laughable.
“But this is pointless because certain people on here have their mind made up.”
No one more so than you. Cashman can go do wrong. Rinse. Repeat.
“I don’t know why people go to a restaurant where they don’t like half the food, think the wait staff sucks, the management is incompetent, and the ownership is cheap and doesn’t really care about owning a restaurant.”
Stellar analogy. Duh, because it’s the only restaurant in town.
Condolences to all the Corey Black-heads out there. I know there was this undercurrent of enthusiasm, the predictions of him pitching in 20 games this spring, the breathless discussion of his outing, the multiple breakdowns of his repertoire. You must all be taking this very hard.
Madden in a column saying the Yankees may regret not signing Torii Hunter:
Supposedly that was because Brian Cashman, ever mindful of having to get under $189 million in payroll in 2014, wasn’t taking on any money beyond this season, although that changed when he later did a two-year, $13 million deal with Ichiro Suzuki, who’ll be 40 in November. It seemed more like Cashman & Co. just didn’t think that much of Hunter, despite his consistent 20-plus homer, 90-plus RBI seasons and positive clubhouse presence.
At the entrance of the Yankee clubhouse at Steinbrenner Field there’s a row of three lockers belonging to Cesar Cabral, the lefty reliever who missed all last year with a stress fracture in his elbow, Manny Banuelos, the erstwhile phenom who underwent Tommy John surgery last year, and Michael Pineda, the “great right hope” trade acquisition from Seattle last year who blew out his shoulder in spring training. Pointing to the three lockers, Daily News beat man Mark Feinsand observed wryly: “I call that the Boulevard of Broken Dreams.”
