    I thought I checked in to the David Phelps thread. Guess I clicked on the wrong spot somewhere. Sorry.

    Carry on.

    It's a little too expressive for Soriano. Better just to stick with "Sory."

    I guess MFIKY isn't gonna stick for Soriano with Yankee fans
    40 pitchers, ever, have an ERA+ of 130 or higher for their career. 15 have 140 or higher. 3 guys have 150 or higher - one is right at 150, the second place guy is at 154, and Mariano Rivera is at 205.

    might help if he pitches more than once in a purple moon

    Pretty quite here considering he made his first major league start. 2 runs, 5 Ks, no walks in 4 innings. Not bad considering that he hasn't been stretched out as a starter.

    Not bad at all, cant wait to see him pitch again.

    I thought he did well, but not being stretched out didn't have much to do with being unable to go more than 4 innings. He was just uneconomical.

    Overall, I liked what I saw.

    Seems he hit a wall at about 75 pitches or so. I wonder if that is his limit for now, especially since he was pitching like once every 5-6 days for 2-4 innings during April.

    recalled. Igarashi sent down. Guess Igarashi was here just for yestrday as emergency. Phelps was probably not available yesterday due to whenever his last MiLB start was.

    I don't understand why he was called up if they wanted to stretch him out as a starter. His last outing (25th) was only 3.1IP & I think I read somewhere it was 50 pitches.

    Unless he's taking Garcia's spot in the rotation?

    My understanding is he's going back to long relief. He's here to spell Warren & Garcia if needed.

    Igarashi was just here yesterday because the pen was thin with Pettitte leaving early.

    Yeah I get why Igarashi was here, I just don't understand their handling of Phelps. They send him down to start then call him back up to be a long reliever?

    I agree. You would think they would use someone else as the long guy.

    I love baseball in general and the Yankees just happen to be my favorite team since I knew what baseball was.

    Needs change. When he was sent down it was because he was getting sporadic use and they were going to strecth him out to be an option to start. Before they could stretch him out though they lost 2 starters and needed a long man.

    When they sent Phelps down they didn't know Sabathia and Pettitte would get hurt.

    Exactly my thought...Cashman should be fired because he didn't know he'd lose 2 starters withing a few hours. Thank God people on this board don't make decisions.

    Right now, the Yankees don't know if Warren or Phelps is going to be able to step up and take one of those spots. Just in case Warren or Garcia bombs this weekend, they have Phelps available to absorb multiple innings. Cashman stated Phelps should be able to give them 70-75 pitches if need be.
    Fire Cashman, but Hal Steinbrenner is the root of Yankee woes.

    Leave it to the Yanks to make the guy with better stuff and peripherals the long reliever.

    I don't think that's fair with Phelps limited in the amount of pitches he could throw tonight.
