The RAB Radio Show: December 2, 2010

The Obligatory Hideki Okajima Post
Yankees make new offer to Jeter

Injuries are no fun. The Yanks announced news on two of them yesterday. Brett Gardner had surgery on his wrist to fix tendinitis. If that sounds odd, well, it is. Mike and I dive into that one. Then there’s Al Aceves, but this time it’s not about his back. He broke his collar bone, which means he’ll get a late start on the season. But we talk about his back injury anyway, because, well, I feel for people who have back problems and think that we shouldn’t undersell how detrimental they can be to long-term health.

And then there’s Sergio Mitre. The Yankees didn’t tender him a contact. No, they did him one better by signing him to a major league deal worth $900K. I understand why people don’t like Mitre. He’s not very good. But as Mike and I explain, the Yanks weren’t going to do much better with the 12th man in the bullpen.

    gardner isnt having his surgery until the 7th

  • king of fruitless hypotheticals

    one of these days somebody is going to have to explain to me why there’s so much mitre hate…he’s not that bad.

    • Slugger27

      hi career xfip is 4.28 and has never been over 5.

      as far as 7th starters go, there’s really nothing to complain about.

    • bexarama

      He’s much scrubbier than other guys in the bullpen and he frequently pitches in blowouts, plus he’s a terrible starter (but not much worse than most teams’ 7th starters, I’d guess).

  • Zack

    Aren’t the Braves moving Prado to LF? I’m sure Hinske will still get plenty of ABs though.

  • mike

    I think they sign Moseley since Aceves wont be back on opening day, worst case he gets DFA’d when Aceves comes back. He did pitch well in 2010 ALCS game 1 remember? look at his line that game 2.0 IP 0 H 0 R 4 SO and he did get the win.

    • Zack

      So 2 good innings means he deserves to be back?
