• Yankees pitching is in good shape

    This season has been a roller coaster ride when it comes to feelings about the state of Yankee pitching. In Spring Training, everyone was wondering what the Yankees were going to do with all those starters. Then Michael Pineda went down, Freddy Garcia and Phil Hughes were brutal to start the season and everyone was wondering what to do with the starting pitching. Then Mariano Rivera and David Robertson were hurt and the bullpen became a scary place. Then the bullpen did extraordinary work and everyone was wondering how long it could last. And now the rotation seems as solid as ever and the bullpen is less scary because Robertson is back and there is less need for bullpen outs. Now that is quite a ride. As of this morning, the Yankees have the best winning percentage in baseball. The pitching is in a good place.
