“The prize is next month”

September
29

Tweet A few post-game items of interest: A.J. Burnett wanted to stay in the game when Joe Girardi came out to get him in the seventh inning. But they didn’t want him over 110 pitches and he was at 108. “The prize is next month,” Girardi told him. Burnett’s last three outings — 19 innings, [...]

Pondering the postseason roster

September
29

Tweet It’s all but official that the Yankees will choose the division series that starts Oct. 7. That series has an extra day off between the first two games and that allows them to use Mariano Rivera and Phil Hughes without concern. It also would allow them to use three starters instead of putting Game [...]

Looking back at some predictions

September
28

Tweet Back on April 2 on his blog I predicted that Phil Hughes would throw 80 innings in the majors and be an important piece. He’s at 84.1 innings. Of course, none of us thought he would be a reliever. I also questioned the merits of Jose Veras, Edwar Ramirez and Jonathan Albaladejo. But then [...]
