    At 30 seconds check out Matsui striking out and Ichiro at 1:11. That's a really flat mound

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    I was startled to hear that Joe Torre once again has Tanyon Sturtze in his bullpen ...

    Tanyon Sturtze said there were several times this year when he wondered why he was still pitching.

    Like when the 37-year-old reliever was in extended spring training in Vero Beach, Fla., working out with 18- and 19-year-olds who spoke a language and listened to music he couldn't comprehend. Or when he was pitching in front of empty seats in Las Vegas in 100-degree temperatures.

    But a call from Torre on Wednesday night made everything worthwhile.

    Twenty-seven months removed from major shoulder surgery that ended a three-year run with the New York Yankees, Sturtze was about to be called back to the majors. His contract was purchased by the Dodgers from triple-A Las Vegas the next day.

    "It's hard to explain how happy and excited I am," said Sturtze, who was 2-2 with a 4.38 ERA in 39 games in double and triple A.

    A veteran who played 11 seasons in the big leagues with six teams, Sturtze nearly called it quits in the spring when he didn't make the Dodgers' major league roster out of camp as a non-roster invitee. But Torre asked him to consider spending time in the minors.

    Sturtze recalled the conversations he had with former players, who told him that they didn't know what to do with themselves.

    Why would he be any different?

    "It's not like I have a Harvard degree to fall back on," said Sturtze, who never attended a four-year college.

    Good luck to Tanyon, he always tried his hardest, including attempting to pitch through the injury that almost ended his career!

    I was just going to post that! Nice to see Irabu is doing well for himself.
    If they ask who was our star, give them twenty five names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Latroy's last 10 games. Maybe the fans in Houston didn't boo him right off the bat for wearing some long forgotten ex-Stroh's number. I'm probably completely off base, but I think that the BS with #21 cost the Yankees a lot of productivity and money. Thanks to the myopic Paulie fans.

    I'm not buying the uniform number BS. Maybe his suddenly improved numbers have more to do with the fact that he is facing inept minor league lineups in the National League.

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    Russ Ohlendorf had his first major league start tonight:

    6IP, 7H, 4ER, 1BB, 2 SO

    He didn't factor in the win but the Pirates did win the game..Volquez had 13 strikeouts in the 7innings he pitched and his team got the loss...

    I wish Russ well..seemed like a nice guy. Pittsburgh is going to give him 5 starts to end the season...

    today Gary Sheffield charged the mound...from first base. per Rotoworld:
    Gary Sheffield was ejected from Friday's game in the seventh inning after a benches-clearing incident.

    Sheffield was annoyed after being hit by a pitch and decided to run his mouth after Fausto Carmona made a pickoff throw to first. After the exchange of words, Sheffield proceeded to run toward the mound and lunge at Carmona as the benches and bullpens cleared. He's definitely facing a suspension.

    Hmm, this is not exactly performance-related ... but he IS a former Yankee, so ...

    TAMPA, Fla. -- Colorado Rockies pitcher Luis Vizcaino has been arrested after police in Tampa say he was driving under the influence.

    According to The Tampa Tribune, Vizcaino was charged with misdemeanor DUI.

    Officers said he was going 71 mph in a 45 mph zone early Monday. Police said Vizcaino's eyes were glassy and bloodshot and he smelled of alcohol, with his blood alcohol level just over the limit.

    The 34-year-old pitcher lives in St. Petersburg and was being held at Hillsborough County Jail on $500 bond.

    Musician Bernie Williams said last night he has a new CD coming out in April called "Moving Forward.''

    Just in case any GMs like Brian Cashman are interested, Williams also said he has not shut the door on his baseball career. Williams, 40, is not totally ready to move forward away from baseball. Playing in the new Yankee Stadium would be a dream come true for the legendary Yankee center fielder, always a fan favorite.

    It was announced last night that Williams would play a major role in the new movie "Keeper of the Pinstripes.'' When asked by The Post if he would like to play in the new Yankee Stadium in 2009 -- the Yankees do have a need -- Williams' eyes grew wide as he said, "Absolutely, yeah. Who wouldn't?
    Good lord...
