• In Case You’re Scoring At Home…

    …Kei Igawa still has three years left on his Yankees contract.

    You know, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Triple-A franchise has only been around since 1989 (when the Maine Guides moved to Pennsylvania). Iggy’s got a great shot at becoming the all-time leader in games started for that franchise.

    And, yes, I’m kidding.

    There’s no way he stays in the rotation there for the next three years…or, is there?

      uhhhh, unfortunately on this one, I think he might stay there all 3 years. If we haven’t traded him yet…

      I doubt it. There were already reports of him wanting to go back to Japan b/c he was miserable. Imagine coming to the states from Japan thinking NY and you end up in Scranton.

      I bet he asks out of his contract if he ends spending another year at AAA. Or demands a trade. One or the other.

      You’d be surprised. Jeff Weaver was picked up by the Milwaukee & Cleveland organizations this year.

      Jeff Weaver has logged more than a couple of successful innings in the major leagues. Igawa has what? That relief appearance against the Sox?

      Jeff Weaver also hasn’t shown much of anything since he was a Dodger.

      Igawa is younger, and lefthanded. I’m sure a team on the west coast somewhere with a nice big ballpark would be willing to take a flyer on him.

      Raf, Weaver has a World Series ring from the Cards in the 2006 WS! Igawa is younger and throws complete garbage. Weaver at least did cedently in 2006 with Duncan…Igawa looks lost at the plate. No team at this point is gonna take a piece of trash like Igawa, stop the BS. I know that you’re a habitual contrarian, but the argument is not apt.

      Big f’n deal. He still sucked.

      A 5.18 ERA when the league average is 4.45 is not “decent,” no matter which way you try to spin it.

      If no team would take a “piece of trash like Igawa” why did the Padres put in a waiver claim?

      With the state of pitching in MLB, there is SOMEONE that would take a flyer on Igawa. To think otherwise is ridiculous.
