    If Chamberlain throws 110-115 pitches in a game that isn’t a no hitter or a perfect game, I will be angry.

      Tomorrow, or this year?

      I have no problem with him getting up that high later in the year.

      • http://actyankee.blogspot.com Matt

        I meant to qualify that–I meant if he does it more than one or two times, I’ll be annoyed. But, yeah, I’d get annoyed if he did that tomorrow.

        • Chris

          It would piss me off even if it were a no hitter. The track record for young pitchers (i.e. less than 25) that have thrown a no-hitter is horrible.

    This date in history:
    04-11-12
    Playing the Red Sox in the opener at New York’s Hilltop Park‚ the Yankees wear pinstripes for the first time. Boston scores a run in the 1st against Ray Caldwell‚ and the Yankees respond with two runs in the bottom against Joe Wood. That is all the scoring until the ninth inning‚ when the Sox score four runs‚ including two on a Smoky Joe single. Boston wins‚ 5-3‚ on Smoky Joe Wood’s seven hitter

    What Coney just said sound unorthodox, but I agree 100%. I’d go with a 6 man rotation to get Hughes into the mix and keep Joba’s innings down.

    With what they’re doing now, Joba will wind up in the bullpen by September.

      • http://www.theyankeeuniverse.com/ Artist formerly known as ‘The’ Steve

        And even bad defensive 1B like Giambi or DelGado are usually pretty good at that. That’s just a matter of getting some reps out there, which Swish probably hasn’t had enough of.

          • Spaceman.Spiff

            Either way, HOF candidacy is not a requirement to have your number retired. I would hope we retire Bernie’s number regardless of whether he makes the HOF or not just for being such an integral part of a Yankee dynasty. BTW, I’m not advocating that Paul get his number retired, just saying that HOF status has limited weight here.

    So, which is the bigger crime: Austin Kearns starting over Elijah Dukes or Eric Byrnes starting over Justin Upton?

    I say the Byrnes-over-Upton thing because that’s costing me in fantasy; I paid $9 for The Upton, dammit!

    • Accent Shallow

      Byrnes. At least Kearns was good at one point.

    • Thomas

      Kearns over Dukes is worse, since Dukes has shown to be far superior to Kearns. Whiles Upton will probably be better than Byrnes in his career, he hasn’t shown that he will be this year.

      Also, the D-Backs are trying to get to the post-season, so at least starting with the veteran is acceptable. Conversely, the Nationals will end up in last place so they might as well play Dukes, who will be part of the future, over Kearns.

      • http://www.new.facebook.com/home.php?ref=home#/profile.php?id=594331910&ref=name Jamal G.

        I see your point, but what Justin Upton produced in a partial 2008 (.347 wOBA and 40 XBH’s in just 417 PA’s) is right in line with what you hope and pray for from a healthy Eric Byrnes; and the former was playing in his age-20 season last year.

        • Thomas

          I wouldn’t have a problem with the D-Back starting Upton (he needs to see regular at bats). Both Dukes and Upton should be starting. I just think there is no reason to play Kearns, no future with the team, over Dukes, possible starting OF for many years, on a team with no chance at the playoffs.

        I’m getting this slow, creeping 1998 feeling about this bunch.

        Seriously, when do we NOT have an edge with the pitching matchup? Looking at the next few weeks, its at worst a push each night until we get to the Boston series.

        Kazmir over Wang? Nope, Wang has dominated the Rays (2.01 ERA)and Kazmir has done well (2.42 ERA)vs the Yanks. Push.

          when veras pitches the 8th with no outs and two men on?

      Did anyone just hear what that fan yelled?

      • http://www.youtube.com/kevyyankees Kevin G.

        No, what did he yell?

      • John

        what he say? im not watching

        • Tom Zig

          I believe he was yelling to Posada…”I f***ed your wife!”

          No one in the YES booth picked up on it, nor did the bleep guy.

          I’m guessing that’s what Girardi was talking to the security guard about.

          • http://heavysoundsandtheabstracttruth.files.wordpress.com/2008/12/alg_burnett-sabathia-3.jpg Mike Pop

            A little over-the-top.

            And, I believe the booth did pick up on it. Cause Coney said that he made the mistake getting into it with a heckler one time.

            • Tom Zig

              That’s kind of in line with bringing a sign to a Mets game that says “Hey Sheff, R.Kelly called, he asked for your wife.”

            • pat

              Yeah but that was in response to kay saying something about the hecklers, not specifically what was said.

    Two Penas in the game and one isn’t Ramiro. What were the odds?

    Hopefully Ramiro Peña also enters the game.

    Harold Reynolds: “I think the numbers unfairly punish Tim Raines’ candidacy for the Hall of Fame”.

    I still believe that is the most nonsensical thing I’ve ever heard. How the fuck can a numerical record of what a person has done be unfairly used to judge said person’s career?

    • http://twitter.com/tsjc68 tommiesmithjohncarlos a/k/a Ridiculous Upside

      The only way that sentence makes sense is if you replace the word “numbers” with the word “writers”.

    • BigBlueAL

      Harold Reynolds also said that Fenway Park actually hurt Jim Rice’s numbers.

            Stop playing the lotto right now.

            You’re throwing your money down the toilet.

            Take all that money you’re spending on tickets and put in in a Roth IRA or a nice mutual fund.

                NO.

                Even at the risk of cataclysmic global economic collapse, you still have better odds of a good return in the stock market than you do in the lottery.

            • mustang

              How come i knew you would say something like that..LOL.
              It’s all for funny as long as your not throwing out twenties like i seen some people do.
              But I agree with the premise of your statement.

                i can’t play the lottery. we live in alabama, and we dont like the immorality (and new computers for 8th graders) that come with the lottery stupid tax

                  The difference between Eminem the rapper and Weird Al Yankovic the rapper:

                  If the “joke” you speak of makes me millions of dollars a month, I would be fine with not being in on the joke.

                  But that’s not the point you are trying to make with your opinion, just wanted to point it out.

                  You know I like Em from our “Stan” debate, but he is much, much, much better than Lil Wayne. I hate how kids in my school love Lil Wayne so much, ugh…I’m listening to Mobb Deep and the kid next to me is blasting “lollipop” on his Ipod.
