Game 89 Spillover Thread
Tex, Hughes power Yanks to post-break win
  • Rebecca-Optimist Prime

    Why was Warren removed? pitch count?

    • Mike Axisa


  • Jacob

    I keep telling myself it’s good that Brackman is just getting his innings but…no strikeouts?

    • Chris G

      I just keep telling myself that you don’t get your location back the first year and he will be better next year.

  • YankeeFan

    When Yankees drafted Warren and I started reading up on him, he reminded me of a righty version of Bleich but with just a tad more lively stuff. Solid college arm with a ton of experience and not the most overpowering stuff. Do you see such a comp Mike?

    • Johan Iz My Brohan

      And he will be the one who lures Dustin Ackley to us MUAHAHAHA

    • Mike Axisa

      He’s another Ian Kennedy, except without the hype.

      • Mattingly’s Love Child

        That talent level? Wow, how many other farm systems have 2 of the next Greg Maddux? ;)

        In all seriousness, always good to have guys like that in the system.

        • whozat

          Yup. I’ve never understood why people don’t see that being able to produce your own role players has value. It means you don’t have to hand out three year deals to Jaret Wright or trade for Shawn Chacon to be your number four guy for half a season. That has value. As much as producing your own front-line starters? No. But value nonetheless.

  • Pablo Zevallos

    Why don’t they just shut Brackman down (i.e. DL him) and have him work with Nardi?

    • Mattingly’s Love Child

      Innings are innings I guess?

    • Reggie C.

      He’s been healthy all year supposedly. He’ll breeze by the 100 inning mark. It won’t be pretty though. I wonder what the Yanks do with him at that point… do you keep pitching Brackman? i can’t imagine it..

      • whozat

        Why not? If he’s building arm strength, and the coaches see progress in his mechanics…who cares? What, is he hurting Tampa’s record?

  • yanke1313

    Medchill keeps on hitting.

  • Mike


    Does Romine giving up so many stolen bases worry you, or do you think it has more to do with lower level pitchers not holding runners on well?

    • ArodMVP217 Retire 51

      Jesus’s CS numbers went up drastically at AA, so probably the latter

      • Zach

        ’08 A 71g: 79 SB (26 CS) 25%
        ’09 A+ 26g: 56 SB (8 CS) 13%
        ’09 AA 22g: 26 SB (11 CS) 30%

        they’re not running on him at the same rate they were before he got bumped up, and the 30% is close to the 25% he had last year, but lets wait til the end of the season before we come to a conclusion

    • Andy In Sunny Daytona

      I saw him the last two nights, and every single one of his throws were on the money. All the base stealers stole them off the pitchers.

  • Reggie C.

    Does Brackman seem to fall apart after a couple innings of work? I feel like several of his starts started off well but then went to hell as he got deeper into the game. Brackman to the ‘pen?

    • whozat

      Brackman to the being allowed to rebuild arm strength for a while after TJ surgery.

  • ManBearPig

    I was so excited in my seat behind the plate tonight, and then no Jesus! Regular day off or did they hold him out due to the rainy conditions?

    • whozat

      I figured it was an off day due to him having been all over the country the last few days, with the futures game and the all star game and stuff.

      • ChrisR

        According to Ashmore, he bruised his thumb yesterday, but will play tomorrow

  • CB

    Nice to see Dave Adams picking it up. He struggled with the promotion to Tampa but has been turning it around more recently. BA is up to .250.

  • Accent Shallow

    Heredia sighting! Color me psyched!

    In re: Brackman, he needs innings. Good results are gravy, but that’s for 2010.

    • ArodMVP217 Retire 51

      agreed, as far as I’m concerned, he still has a shot at reaching his ceiling

    • Reggie C.

      Last I read Brackman was sitting in the low 90s , and he admitted that his velocity hasn’t fully come around yet. That was awhile ago. I’d love to find out how hard he’s throwing. Once the velocity settles back into the mid-90s (as we all expect) , we can then hope that his very good CB becomes a more effective outpitch.

      I’m frustrated with Brackman’s run of game performances. Remember … even with Betances’s issues, he still put up strong game performances last year. Hopefully Brackman has another run of strong games before his season ends.

      • Grandma Karkan

        Betances never had TJ though.
