      Seriously though, he hasnt helped the team much this season at all and Aceves, Hughes and Coke just dominate the 7th and 8th in close games or games where we are ahead. Its a no brainer anymore. Joe gave him plenty of chances.

      It’s been two seasons for Bruney; BI and PI.

      Before his Injury, he was outstanding. People forget this, but he was one of the highlights of April. 2-0, 4 holds, no games blown, 8 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 2 BB, 12 K. He was pitching lights out. So much so, that people were yelling and screaming about the middle relief, and calling him the back half of the much-needed “bridge to Mo”.

      While he was out the 1st time, the consternation was all about who would take the 8th inning, and should Joba be moved back to the pen?

      Now, after the 2 stints on the DL, the Yanks can’t find blowouts big enough to put him in, having been in 6 straight nailbiters since his last appearance, winning 5 of them.

      That is where Bruney is these days, Steve; waiting for the Yanks to be ahead, or more likely, behind, by 4+ runs in the late innings.

      To be honest, I really don’t care where he is as long as he’s not on the mound in crucial moments. Yes, he did start the season of well but when he went on the DL people were wanting him back so bad like he was the 2nd coming of Jeff Nelson. To me, he hadn’t proved anything to be calling him the 8th inning man.

      hes going to have to earn more time by succeeding in low leverage situations

      Well it looks like he is working the 9th right now.

      Two strike outs (a step in the right direction)
      Back-to-back HRs (two steps back)

      [...] Then again, maybe this one would have been not so close – if not for Carmen Sandiego? [...]
