Here are the stats, to date:
Let’s face it, the only Yankees relievers who can be trusted, now, are Chamberlain and Rivera. Once again, as it has been the case for the last half-dozen years or so, the Yankees pen is extremely weak heading into the post-season…because of the lack of depth and the wear and tear on the guys who were good during the year.
The best chance that the Yankees have to win any game this October is for their starter to go six or seven inning and then turn the ball over to Joba and Mo. But, you can’t do that everyday…or else then Chamberlain and Rivera will get taxed too.
It’s not looking pretty…at all.
