    Well, put it this way, if his season ended today, it would be one of the worst showings by a Yankees starting pitcher since 1996. Note his place among these other clunkers:

      Fortunately, the season doesn’t end today.

      Or maybe that’s unfortunately. I dunno. I still think Javy’s going to have a hot streak as some point. He has, in just about every season he’s been in the majors. Even the AL seasons.

      That’s NOT pretty. I just blink my eyes, because I really thought we’d do much better than this with JV. Maybe this next stretch will allow him to find whatever it is he lost.

      This brings Wang to mind though – Anyone know how he is progressing for the Nats?
