A Yankees update
I'd like to thank Neil H for picking up the slack in recent days as I've been in bed rather unwell and with my final project for my university course due in on Friday, I have been working on that for those rare few moments that I have felt well enough to get out of bed.
Anyways, the Yanks have won four straight, what is the deal with that? The whole rotation has been through with quality starts, with only Pavano getting a Loss despite pitching well. Mike Mussina stepped up in a big way and looked great against a weak Athletics line-up but when Kevin Brown came in and did the same, it certainly made me sit up and notice.
I have Kevin Brown in my main fantasy team and Sunday was his last chance to throw well before he got the chop and that he did. However upon closer inspection, Brown's numbers haven't been as bad as I previously thought. His dERA is down at 3.51, which does show that the majority of the hits off him have been ground balls and sooner or later these hits will turn into ground ball outs.
Randy did ok again on Monday night without truly excelling and Wang did a fine job last night. All highly encouraging stuff.
In a few minutes they start a day game against the Mariners as they look to get the brooms out for the first time in a three-game series so far this season. Carl Pavano goes to the mound and faces up with Jamie Moyer.
In one more piece of news, F-Rod has gone on the DL and utility IF Russ Johnson has come up. More my the Giambeanie and my take on the latest news on New York's least favourite slugger to come later on tonight after the game.
