    Does anyone know the Yankees record against Jason Vargas and Luke French? I hope they aren't one of these pitchers the Yankees have never faced before?

    I really would like to get a sweep here. But facing Felix Hernandez right off the bat a sweep would be a lot to ask for.

    Thanks. I'm familiar with the site. It's just where I am right now I don't have time to go through that particular site.

    Rays lost to the A's.

    In case you were wondering (probably not) This Yankees magic # to win the division is.

    David Robertson has really turned it around. Not allowing a run post all star yet, dropping his ERA to 3.68.

    Our bullpen overall has been good post all star. Kerry Wood has been better than Chan Ho Park.


    The pick up of Austin Kearns was a good one.

    AJ Burnett P

    I hope the Good AJ steps up tonight. We have a tough match up against Felix tonight. ARod is backin the line up and was taking ground balls during BP today.

    I wish Montero would friggin get here already so we can stop with this automatic out (Cervelli), and I wish we would use Nunez as the primary utility INF while he's here just to see what he has.
    Yankees would have to be willing to put Montero behind the plate. I dunno if they are.

    I Just can't live with Cervelli as a starter, its killing me!
    I respectfully disagree. A catcher's #1 job is defense and calling a game. You want to bring a rookie up in a pennant race and have him control the game, when none of our pitchers even know who he is?

    Think of it this way, if Montero got 2 more bases per game than Cervelli, but the pitchers didn't trust him and they started getting hit like a Wac a Mole, the Yankees suffer more than they gain.

    Now, what if Montero struggles at the plate upon coming to the majors. It is not unheard of for a rookie to struggle. Plus he is subpar defensively. Plus he doesn't know his own pitchers, or the hitters in the league. You could get a mediocre hitter for a month who can't catch. That doesn't help at all.

    Bring him up to DH, or bring him up in spring training next year to get to learn the staff.

    this is my preffered top 6 of the order, with posada at 7 instead of grandy and arod preferably not DHing to save us from the useless spot in the lineup that is Ramiro Pena, Gardner provides us with a spark at the top that Jeter doesnt. Mix Kearns in towards the bottom of the order taking out cervelli and Pena and that is by far our most lethal order, IMHO

    I haven't seen him enough behind the plate to make a sound judgment

    Agreed. It's risky bringing up a rookie Catcher in the middle of a heated pennant race. He'll be here in about 1 1/2 weeks anyway (September call up). He'll DH then and possibly get an opportunity to make the postseason team as a DH. We'll see. But IMO there's no doubt that he'll be oon the 25 man roster in 2011.

    instead of water boarding, we should force terrorists to watch AJ pitch

    The Bad AJ starts the game!!!

    Before I go, Zach McAllister is the player top be named later for Austin Kearns. No a problem. He's not a prospect, in my opinion. Though It would of been nice to have a Yankee player who I shared a last name with.

    And "Double Play" Derek makes another contribution to his Turn 2 Foundation. The total number is now 18 for the season.

    It's funny that the Yankees still believe Burnett and Cervelli have some sort of chemistry behind the plate. Burnett is always a wild card, and Cervelli has no chemistry with anyone; in the last year he somehow lost all catching ability.

    Burnett is just hot garbage.

  20. #20
    Can we stop this ridiculous exercise in folly...AJ Burnett does not possess "good stuff" He has velocity and control about 15% of the time, and he is absolutely incapable of weathering even an ounce of adversity.

    He's a f*****g mental midget.
