    A nice couple of innings in his debut(so far, might come out for more).

    He looked great tonight, of the 44 pitches he threw 33 were for strikes. He even picked up a save in the process.

    It was his first save since 2001. Two of the last three times a Yankee pitched at least 4 innings and finished a game he didn't start it was the pitcher's first game with the Yankees. The previous two times were Noesi including his MLB debut.

    He's the second Yankee in the past ten years to have a save with at least 4 innings. The previous Yankee was Aceves. Before Aceves, Orlando Hernandez did it.

    Whose win did El Duque save and who was the opponent? What stadium did they play in and how many people were in attendance? Who is the last Yankee to no-hit a team wearing red uniforms?

    I get it.......... but, he did get it done and saved our pen tonight. We have seen many instances when others could not do this and our pen had to throw 2-3 innings.

    a lot of ground balls...I like. Now lets see if he can contiune
    The real reason why the Yankees keep winning is cause the other team can't stop staring at the damn pinstripes

    Re: 2012 Derek Lowe Performance Thread

    Tremendous job by Phelps and Lowe tonight.

    That was a lethal lineup they shutdown tonight, about as dangerous a lineup as there is in baseball.

    Lowe was sharp tonight and he was dropping that sinker like a bad habit.

    Re: 2012 Derek Lowe Performance Thread

    His sinker was scary good. I wonder, though, if it would be even more effective if he threw the slider more

    I recall only a few to lefties. It's clearly not as good as the sinker, but throwing it more often would make the sinker even more deadly

    If he continues throwing like that , a lot of GM's will have non buyers remorse. Cashman has made a lot of great "small" moves like that this year

    I wonder how long they'll keep him around (i.e., what happens when CC comes off the DL).

    As strange as it sounds (and believe me it sounds strange) they must keep him. What happens if Nova and Phil keep struggling and Lowe is lights out the rest of the way? Just sayin...they would be forced to start him in the playoffs.

    The team will find a way to keep him on the 40 through August.
