    I agree, he probably would not be able to but then again look who he's faced the last few games: at LA, at SF, 2x vsColorado, Cubs, Phillies, 2x vs Cinci
    He's faced arguably the top teams in the NL and not strictly the NL west. Of course it's a very different ball game in the AL especially in the East but he's playing well against the competition handed to him.

    Did it ever occur to Cashman to convert him to the bullpen? This short sighted thinking lead to a great setup man, younger, better and cheaper than Soriano, get away.

    I don't even remember Axford pitching in the farm and don't think he is anything special.

    San Francisco called up Chris Stewart to replace the injured Buster Posey. Stewart went 0-for-3 in his only game with the Yankees on April 28, 2008. Stewart pinch-ran yesterday but hasn't had an MLB at-bat since he left the Yankees.

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    Every single half-decent pitching prospect we've traded since and including Tyler Clippard seems to have panned out. It's really something. Even a guy like Ross Ohlendorf managed to become a #3 starter for the Pirates, and Daniel McCutchen is now a shutdown reliever for them. It'll be interesting to see if Coke continues to be an above average starter for the Tigers, if Melancon maintains his role as Houston's closer, if IPK can continue to solidify his position as Arizona's ace... it's too bad we undersold practically all of these guys. Arodys will be the one to regret the most, though, if he reaches his potential. I also hope to see McAllister called up this season, he seems to have righted the ship.

    But they weren't top prospects! They were blocked and would have never made it as a Yankee! We have to trade these b-level prospects! The Yankees can't wait for these prospects to develop at the major league level

    That's the same sorry excuse I hear on this board whenever these traded guys do pan out and it's really starting the sound lame.

    Ohlendorf? He has a 97 ERA+ since the trade. I'm not getting worked up about 20 very good IP for McCutchen (and his .238 babip and 4.6 K/9). Coke and IPK brought us Granderson. I would like to have Melancon back, and I never understood the Clippard trade.

    Two former Yanks in the WSox Bullpen

    The White Sox announced that they designated infielder Dallas McPherson for assignment. In related moves, Chicago optioned Lucas Harrell to Triple-A and called up right-handers Brian Bruney and Jeff Marquez.

    Glad to see he's all the way back from injury. I guess now the WSox can see if they get any return on the Swisher trade.

    Jose Veras just issued his fourth walk of the eighth inning, allowing the Mets to go ahead 9-7.

    Earlier the Pirates were up 7-0. Apparently this will be the second time the Mets have bailed out Pelfrey from a 7-0 deficit.

    One of the oddest ABs I've ever seen was this inning

    Capuano pinch hit for Isringhausen - after failing to get the bunt down and falling behind 0-2 Capuano was pinch hit for by Thole. Veras balked the guy the 2nd, threw a wild picth to get him to 3rd and procedded to walk Thole.

    The inning kind of went downhill from there for Veras.

    This is a stretch I realize, but onetime farmhand Wily Mo Pena gets the call-up in Arizona.

    Giambi's HR last night was, supposedly 440 feet. It was a bomb.

    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I ended up where I need to be.

    I wish Giambi well but there's no question in my mind that the team is better with Tex at first than it ever was with Giambi there. YMMV
