Wonder no more about the Unit


With the Yankees starting pitching less than stellar recently, I’m sure Randy Johnson has crept into people’s minds. Say what you will about the Big Unit’s time in New York, but the man gave the team innings every year. But lest those doubts start to creep up on you, just turn to Will Carroll’s latest Under the Knife (Subscription well worth it):

Randy Johnson had a solid rehab start at Single-A, going six innings with six strikeouts against the kids. There was some concern about his velocity, which was off a bit, and that’s something to watch when he takes the mound again this Friday.

So it’s the same old story with the Grumpy Old Man. His velocity – already down over the last two seasons – is still down. In other words, Randy ain’t getting any younger, and I’m still happy to see him far far away for us.

    Damon’s is an idiot for saying that Yankees are best team in American league. After Damon said ”Yankees are team to beat” , The injuries in Yankees rotation started to breakdown. I blame Cashman for signing this clown.. I have to wait three more years until his contract ends.

    If you have nothing constructive to say, don’t just curse for the hell of it.

    I’m sure that Damon’s comments are the sole reason for this “breakdown.”
