Remember Them?
Friday, July 25, 2008
The Yanks pitching has been nothing short of stellar of late, with the likes of Sir Sidney and D-Ras doing their best to rid themselves of their "filler starter" titles and prove they deserve their spots in the rotation and the bullpen evidently forgetting that they weren't expected to be all that great sans Jobamania. Despite their greatness, though, I have serious doubts that they'll be able to maintain such a performance over the remaining 2+ months of the season.

More help could be on the way though. In case you've forgotten, the Yanks have three (potentially) valuable pitchers rotting in the DL Resort and Casino: Bruney, Hughsie, and I-Ken. All three of them are working their way back to health and at least one of them could be back with the Yanks sometime very soon.

Hughsie has only recently begun his rehab, but the other two are already pitching in minor league games. Bruney has pitched 11.1 innings in nine games, giving up 9 hits, 4 earned runs, 7 walks and 12 strikeouts - not a bad start at all. IPK has been busting some serious moves for Scranton including a near no-hitter yesterday that was ruined largely by his team's poor defense. He's got a 1.96 ERA in 9 games in the minors thus far and opposing batters are only hitting .166 against him. Of course, he's done this before this year - pitched like a champ in the minors - and still wasn't able to hack it upon returning to the Bronx.

What dost thou think? What can we expect from these dudes if/when they make their triumphant/embarrassing returns? Or could they be trade bait?

    Well, I have heard/read that the Rockies would want I-Ken in a trade for Fuentes. Is Fuentes worth it, I don't know? But I do not think that I-Ken is gonna hack it in the majors and would be good trade bait.

    I have to agree, I think I-Ken is trade fodder. I would like to think that they give him one more shot but if he does poorly again that could hurt his trade value.
