Re: MLB Saturday April 18, 2009

Wang is just flat out awful so far this year. He's given up 6 and there's only 1 out in the second.

Re: MLB Saturday April 18, 2009

Looks like Phil Hughes time is coming sooner this year than anyone would have hoped. It's much worse knowing that the rest of the starting rotation has done pretty well with the exception of Sabathia's first start and Joba's start yesterday was nothing to write home about but it wasn't horrible and they did win.

Wang's mechanics are just off. I don't think it's part of that lingering injury. He's just the type of pitcher that if he's off, he'll get shit on because his stuff will just hang out in the middle of the plate. He needs some time in the minors to figure his shit out.

13 run 2nd inning for the Indians now. Tough to watch and Burnett will need to clean up the mess again tomorrow.

Re: MLB Saturday April 18, 2009

Am I allowed to be bitter about the 2009 Braves season yet? Ugh, just a hideous performance out there again today. 22 freaking consecutive innings without scoring a run.

It's unthinkable that Wang did this, again.

I dropped Wang in all the leagues I had him in, and one of my opponents picked him up off waivers. Win: Me.

Re: MLB Saturday April 18, 2009

I just dropped him in the one league i had him. he was worth taking a flyer on just based on his 2007 season performance. obviously he lost his touch.

something has got to be wrong that he is not communicating, he is just awful and hopefully will not start again. maybe middle relief would be best.

and why can't the Yankees get outfielders that can ACTUALLY field??? everytime i see the ball hit to the outfield doesn't matter where i know it is a lost caused. i see other teams' outfielders that make plays like the ones the Yankees miss with ease. it is truly pathetic year in and year out having no decent middle relievers and no fielding outfielders.
