    no tabata or jackson today?

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    No, Tabata hasn’t played in 4 days, and Jackson just had the day off.

    Tabata is on the 7-day DL I believe.

    Nice to see as well that Buchholz gave up 2 homers in 5 ip tonight (course he also k’d 9 . . . but I still says he’s nowhere near St. Phil, Joba, Mini-Moose league)

  • http://riveraveblues.com Mike A.

    I love to bash on Red Sox prospects as much as the next guy, but I do have to give Buchholz his due. Phil’s in an entirely different stratosphere in my opinion, but you could make a case for Joba over Buchholz, or vice-versa, and not embarass yourself. Buchholz will give up alot of homers in the bigs – at least initially – because his fastball doesn’t have that much giddy-up on it, and (more importantly) his control with it is spotty. Joba’s fastball…well you know about that.

    I’ve been defending IPK since, and I’m not exaggerating one bit, the day the Yankees drafted him (I wish I had saved all the “what they hell were they thinking” emails, they’d be fun to look back on), but he’s definitely a notch below Buchholz, Joba, Homer Bailey, Wade Davis, etc.

    On IPK, I think one could make the arguement that he is the organizational pitcher of the year. With all due respect to Joba, Ramirez, Patterson, Robertson, Horne – Kennedy’s numbers are pretty incredible and consistent from level to level. I just heard Davidoff on WEEI this morning say Kennedy is a #3. On the Yankees he is a #4 (Hughes/Wang/Chamberlain in some order). If he lives up to potential, he could be the best #4 in baseball. Davidoff also compared him to Mussina. Moose, while not a true ace in his career was about a 1A to a 2 for some time.

    Tabata is listed as having “a case of the nerves likely caused be the discussion of the talented outfielder being the next “____ Watch” candidate
