This is why you laugh when people say "too much pitching"
No such thing, ever.
The Yankees so far have one of the worst starting staffs statistically. Thankfully its very early, but seems like very game is 5+ runs allowed.
I was think more of this quote:
"Every Halloween, the trees are filled with underwear. Every spring, the toilets explode."
Then there was the one from Hemingway:
'Have faith in the Yankees my son. Think of the great DiMaggio."
Don't make the mistake and be mesmorized by "name recognition". Those "names" seem impressive, but unless Kuroda can move beyond the "one good game, one bad game", unless Pineda can add a couple of mph to his fastball, unless CC can truly get back to his mid-2011 form, this could be a long season---
-- and it could finally determine Girardi's near term job security. At some point guys like Warren and Mitchell should be given the chance.. and Yankee brass need need to determine why Betances and Banuelos are going backward not forward at the AAA level.
...and for Gawd's sake, get Jones out of there and bring up Wise.
It amazes me that some teams have excellent starting pitching. And the Yankees almost always have an excellent bullpen but the starting staff is usually so-so.
I was hoping that Rothschild would be the Yankee version of miracle worker Dave Duncan. I actually thought he could turn Hughes into a decent starter. Maybe he still can given time?
Guess that's why I was all for improving the staff with Pineda or Felix or Ubaldo Jimenez or Gio Gonzalez or even Johan. Cliches like one could never have too much pitching ring true.
The bright side for me so far are Soriano and Logan. And of the other players Jeets, Teixiera (who seems to be making an effort to make contact and not just swinging for the fences) and Ibanez.
