    Veras called up to NYY

    I'm sorry if this has been posted and I missed it.

    Anyway, here it goes.

    Jose Veras (left) has been called up to New York, taking Phil Hughes spot on the big league roster. Veras has been outstanding down here, allowing only two earned runs in 13 appearances, with both earned coming in the same game. He's had a save in seven straight appearances.

    No need to apologize. I would have missed this news if it was buried in one of the billion-page performance megathreads that seem to be so popular these days.

    Thanks & ditto. I can barely find current Yankee news with the megathreads & a real news item is a breath of fresh air.

    Good news. Hopefully he can give Ohlendorf and Albie a breather every now and then.

    Veras was never really very impressive in his big league appearances but he does have good stuff so hopefully he can contribute.

    I'm assuming Olly/Britton/Alby goes down for Rasner tomorrow?

    I agree with you both and find the performance threads for the players and for the teams EXTREMELY COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.

    I will probably post less and less and possibly not come here anymore. That is sad to me because I was here almost from the start, but I find those threads almost anti intelectual. I know people will disagree with me, but that's how I feel and I will vote with my feet.

    Probably Britton, Alby seems to have impressed Girardi a lot and with good reason.

    I have to think that Girardi was a little underwhelmed with Alby last night, though.

    that seems a bit unfair. britton came in and did the job. alby didn't...

    yes he's been good, but the same can be said about britton when he actually gets a shot.

    I agree entirely with you. The megathreads are now out of hand. People should begin submitting more narrowly-defined posts that can't so easily be absorbed into those unreadable threads.

    Don't forget, we now have Inside the Lines II, special for people who don't like the megathreads. You can start a thread for anything in there, as long as it's Yankees on the field stuff.

    I'm glad I paid a visit to the forum. I'd never hear about this down here in Florida. This is nice as it gives us another fresh arm in the pen that has SOME experience. Hopefully he manages to evade opposing bats as well.

    I'm excited of seeing his 97mph fastball, 90mph hard slider and a curve with a big loop. Now only if he could control better

    Re: Veras called up to NYY

    From what I saw in his limited exposure was a guy who threw hard (didn't see too many 97's, mainly 94-95) with shoddy control and don't even recall seeing a decent curveball. It's worth a shot to see what he can do, but I'm not not expecting much.

    Thanks for pointing this out; I learned something today ;-). However, a) it's not obvious on the site & b) I think it needs a new name (Inside the Lines 2 seems like an afterthought when in fact it's more in the original spirit of the forum ... jmho!). If you've been around here for awhile, this is easy to miss.
    GoYanks!
