DotF: Yanks’ hurlers struggle

Kei Igawa sucks
An A-Rod Prediction

We get a little spoiled sometimes. With Joba and Phil lighting it up over the last few days, we’ve come to expect great things from Yankee pitchers every day. Well, not so today. Clippard and DeSalvo got lit up at AA and AAA, and Ross Ohlendorf had a rough return to Scranton. Courtesy of Alan Hirsch, Down on the Farm

  • Gibb

    is it just me or does jesus montero only get hits when he DHs?

  • Rich

    Ohlendorf hasn’t shown much since ST.

    When Gammons recently mentioned him as a candidate for a call up, I thought he must be having had a senior moment.

  • Motown Yankees Fan

    Rich – I thought that too. Then I wondered if he really meant Kennedy?

  • dan

    not sure if he meant kennedy or not, but I can’t see how he meant ohlendorf. its not like ohlendorf steamrolled through AA last year, and he struggled before getting hurt this year.
