Amazing how it’s somewhat easy to win when your starting pitcher gives you six solid innings, huh? (By the way, between Darrell Rasner and Johan Santana, who pitched the better game today? Think Hank is keeping track?)
Just how good can Ranser be for the Yankees this season? Will he be Charlie Hudson circa 1987 good? Or, better, say, like Melido Perez circa 1992 good? Or, something less, like Joe Cowley circa 1985 good?
Whichever of the three it may be…or if it’s somewhere in between…it’s still better than what the Yankees were getting out of Hughes, Kennedy or Igawa. I can’t wait until his next start.
