TLR on Reyes' status, after saying he considered only Carpenter and Wells sure things in the rotation: "I consider him competing. That's not a healthy thing for Anthony to say, hey, go ahead and buy a house, you're here. That's not a good attitude. I think he'll respond better if he knows and the club knows...
"Kip is an experienced starter. He's had enough success. But the other three guys that pitch in that rotation, as of right now, should be guys that walk out of camp and can say, 'I won that job. I earned it.'
"He's a year older and he's a year better pitcher. I just don't think it's smart to make a statement that you can't back up. And if he goes into camp and can't get anybody out..." [obviously, you're not a golfer]
nope, not enough bad words in my vocabulary. carl pavano's a pretty experienced starter, how about team tony takes him, and the yankees take a chance on this inexperienced young reyes fella. everybody wins! and by everybody i mean tlr, who is , let's face it, the only person that matters.
Kip Wells ERA+:By Mr. Faded Glory, at 4:50 AM <$BlogItemControl$>
Reyes ERA+ (21 games):
Personally I'd choose to err on the side of youth.
Oh but you can sponsor this page for $20!
remember this is the man who pitched a fit with the media when their magic # got to zero, but it DIDN'T COUNT because it came about thanks to an (I think) houston loss. :r: I also think that since he got blamed for the rick ankiel sept/postseason meltdown he is a major reverse-ageist.By June, at 10:36 PM <$BlogItemControl$>
June, I am offended. There is only agism, there is no reverse agism!By Mr. Faded Glory, at 11:40 PM <$BlogItemControl$>
