A couple of days ago there was a nice little discussion about which picture of Yankees pitching prospect Joba Chamberlain people preferred for the Joba Watch. I scoured the interweb looking for shots of the guy, and came up with a couple decent ones. Photos and poll after the jump.
So Mariano Rivera pitched tonight because, according to Kenny Singleton, he “needed work.” But last night, when the Yanks needed a win, Rivera just sat in the bullpen as Scott Proctor imploded. I covered this to death earlier with this post here and this one here, but it’s worth repeating. We have seem terrible bullpen utilization by Joe Torre over and over again this season.
Meanwhile, the lethargic Yankee offense has mustered a two-run home run in 18 innings in Baltimore. So at this point, I have to wonder: Who’s going to be managing the Yankees on Friday when they return home from what would be, at best, a 2-7 road trip against the Orioles, Giants and Rockies? Which brings me to a new poll…
We love the draft here at RAB, and strive to provide you with some of the best amateur draft coverage on the blogosphere (let’s face it, we can’t compete with the great writers at the Scout.com network). We’ll have plenty of scouting reports, links, photos, analysis, opinions, and just some random musings leading up to the big event, which kicks off Thursday at 2pm EST. Just as I did last year at IGWT, I’ll be liveblogging the Yankees picks, and probably chiming in on some of the other picks as well.
Here’s the links to some of our more substantial draft features from this year, but you can access all our draft coverage by clicking here.
