How’s Chris Britton doing these days, anyway?

By

Before that hit, Ryan Budde was 1 for 11 in 9 games with the Angels. A 28-year-old rookie, he’s in the Majors only because everyone else is hurt. But GOOD JOB SEAN HENN! WAY TO GO. I stayed up until 2 a.m. for that the shear pleasure of watching Joe Torre and the Yankees snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Ugh.

    WHAT’S UP WITH PHIL? WAY TOO MANY WALKS AND THE VELOCITY HAS GOT TO IMPROVE A LITTLE IF HE’S GONNA BE AN ACE ONE DAY – I’M SO PUMPED ABOUT HIS STARTS AND HE HAS BEEN A BIT OF A LET DOWN

    I thought he was throwing hard. But the command. Sheesh. And it wasn’t just the walks themselves, even when the Angels were getting out his pitches were missing Jorge’s target by feet rather than inches. Now part of that was that he had a lot of movement on his fastball, but against a less free-swinging team he could run into real trouble if he shows the same lack of command.

    yea they are saving Britton for the stretch run for SWB.. the important AAA playoffs.. aren’t you waiting to get your SWB playoff tickets????

    Britton must have sone something terrible in his 4 innings for the Yanks earlier this yr………..

    yeah, seriously, why the hell is Henn on the team bu Britton aren’t :/.

    as for Hughes, he’s outting was kinda like Wang’s, the stuff was there most of the time but not all the time, i thought he approached Vladdy very well today. but got beaten by scrubs like Mathis…

  • tony from the bronx

    he got beat because for some reason posada called for a 1st pitch curve to a 200 hitter with the bases loaded also games like this remind me why the philly fans hated abreau strikes out on apitch in the dirt in the 9th (at least he swung this time) and then that slide in the 10th on the game winner he fears contact and mike i agree about torre and madden joe can not manage a team of youngsters i would hire joe griadi bill madden is a dope does he think people forget his previous articles

    they need to put Viz on the DL and call up Britton.

    when a pitcher actively tells a manager he needs a day off, it’s a bad sign.

    all those appearances in 10-2, 6-1 games are catching up to Viz.
