Another One Bites the Dust
Wednesday, May 28, 2008
The DL Resort and Casino is filling up mighty quickly, my friends, and I've got bad news: the Yanks have sent yet another injured soldier on a little vacation to DL-ville. This time, it's our floundering youngster Ian Kennedy who will be joining Hughsie and Jorgie Porgie on the DL, after straining his right lat during the third inning of yet another sub-par outing.

On second thought, maybe that's not such bad news after all.

Losing a player to the DL certainly isn't good news, obviously, but with the way I-Ken has been pitching perhaps a little breather will be good for him - and avoiding what has been an automatic loss every 5 days can't hurt the Yanks, either.

What about that spot in the rotation, though? The obvious solution would be to get Joba in there, since they've been working on stretching him out for that move anyway, but will 4 or 5 more days of extending his workload be enough to prepare him to throw 100 pitches in a game? Luckily for the Yanks, Hughsie's replacement, Rasner, has proved himself to be perfectly capable of filling in in the rotation himself, and if Joba is as successful in the starting role as he has been out of the bullpen, the Yanks will actually have a very strong starting 5.

Now if only their 'pen was halfway decent without Joba...

Trade forthcoming? Stay tuned.

    Just so you know (not that you'll care) but your "Score & More" section says the Yanks lost in the 13th when it was in fact that 11th.... BTW. I stop by your blog several times a day. Thanks for all the great posts.

    I have a feeling moving Joba to the starting rotation is going to come back to haunt us.
    I really hope I wrong, but I'm very leery of this move..

    I think you should change your blog title to the Rays Chick. It seems like it would be alot more fun to talk about winning and young studs like Garza, Upton, and Longoria than a bunch Geriatrics who would be better off playing shuffle board than playing baseball.

    Oh yeah, are you going to be doing anymore live blogging in the future ?

    First off, Joba in the rotation is going to be ever-so heart warming to Yankees fans. He alone, will make us forget about the fall of the "other two". Hughes I think is going to be OK, a broken rib I suppose could affect your pitching and cause you to get shelled. I-Ken on the other hand, is a AAA starter at best, poor kid.

    I don't like, O.K., I despise the idea of making Farnsworth the 8th inning man but Girardi seems content to sink with that ship.

    Like I said before, keep an eye out for Dellin Betances around mid to late September. He has gotten off to a shaky start but his stuff will come around and so will he.

    But, get ready for the beauty of Joba dominating 7-9 innings every 5 days, and doing so with that fire and enthusiasm that we love and know from him.
