The RAB Radio Show – April 23, 2009 – Episode 23

By

After a brief hiatus the RAB Radio Show is back this week. Mike and I are ready to break down the team as we always do.

Chien-Ming Wang is the main topic of conversation to kick things off, as he should be. No one could have expected this. So what to do with him? The Yanks threw him in Extended Spring Training today — after we broadcasted — and it appears that he’ll miss his next start. Nardi thinks he still needs to build arm strength. This means Phil Hughes on Tuesday. Mike and I express our opinions on the Phranchise making his 2009 debut.

There’s plenty more in this edition. It was kind of a last-minute thing — we’ve been trying to re-tool the Radio Show to be a bit more interesting. Guests are forthcoming, so it won’t just be two schmucks talking baseball.

  1. it appears that he’ll miss his next start. Nardi thinks he still needs to build arm strength. This means Phil Hughes on Tuesday.

    Is that confirmed, and does this mean CMW is going on the 15-day DL retroactive to his last start?

    Wow.
    11 Strikeouts but gave up 9 hits.

    Greater that 1 hit per inning in extended spring training? Phil Hughes, you’re up.

    Get well soon Wang.

    Good show guys. I just have one question. What % chance that the every member of the Yankee infield makes the all star game?

  5. tim randle says:

    how was the KC a “legitimate” loss–you even said JoeG overmanaged it.

    maybe we’re working off different definition of “legitimate”

    i like the pen comments.

    jeter:
    have the guys in front of him gotten slower/taken shorter leads?
    he’s slower?
    not just bat speed, but less power, so those balls are being fielded instead of hit through?

    HoF?!?!

    agree on the allstar. its like Christmas decorations up before halloween…

    Endy Chaves will hit better than Melky Cabrera? Melky has a better career number than Chavez and every systems project Melky to hit better this season than Chavez (and they’re not even close). I know you people love to hate on Melky but I didn’t know you also had an unhealthy level of man crush on freakin’ Endy Chavez.
