    It’s a gang of 26!

    Terry Mulholland and Bob Ojeda in ’94? Was the Yankees 1994 season opening starting rotation really Jimmy Key, Terry Mulholland, Jim Abbott, Melido Perez and Bob Ojeda? Yes, it seems to be true.

    Back to Vazquez…what if his 2010 turns out like Mike Mussina’s 2004? If it does, that’s going to be somewhat uncomfortable, no?

      Hmmm…David Cone on the list in 3 different seasons.

      Mussina – 2004? 12-9, 4.57 ERA. I would say that’s near the bottom edge of what he can do, if he stays healthy.

      SL the more even more uncomfortable question is this: what if Mr Junior Varsity is like he was in the second half of 2004? I believe that to be an even more apropos example. I don’t think MR JV will have an ERA below 5 BTW, so why ahould I give him any bloody credit mate for having Moose-like stats?

      So they booed the Second Half All Star,unh? Alex Rios ,the biggest bust in Toronto Bluebirds history has been booed mercilessly since his return to The Skydome and he’s been busting it up there! That’s the best revenge against the boos… great hitting and pitching. There are claims that Mr JV whined about the booing? Please stop being weak JV if that’s true. Go out there and pitch and stop giving proverbial grist for the mill so to speak.

      Of all of Cash Man’s 2010 Follies(not bringing back either one of Matsui or Damon,bringing back IP(Injury Prone Johnson) and trading for Grandy the Media Man) the Junior Varsity trade was the worst move next to not bringing back Gojira OR Damonic. with Grandy, he will be better than last year and perhaps he won’t be as good as either Damonic or Matsui, I still think he be decent. Provided the fact that Chris Carlin Johnson stays healthy, he’ll be productive BUT that’s if he does actually accomplish that feat. Even still, JV has no good will with the fans after 2004. His first game was an absolute bust and the second was an OK pitching performance. JV pitched well enough to let the Yanks lose!

      For everyone who’s floating the “it’s only two starts” theory, ponder this……

      Isn’t that what was being said about Wang last year this same time?

      Now you can say CMW was hurt, but still – his record as a starter ended up being 1-6 with an 11 ERA before he finally went on the DL for good – AL hitters do not have mercy no matter what’s ailing you.

      Rash, or realistic??

      When the trade was made, I was opposed to it, and said so here. Because with one home start there’s already 40,000 people booing him off the mound already, so the potential for this getting uglier is there.

      Everyone knew that with him coming here the rope would be short with the fan base, whether it’s fair or not. I want him to succeed when he pitches the same way I want anyone, down to the bench guys like Ramiro Pena to prosper when he plays.
