• Counting For Starters

    Posted by on January 26th, 2015 · Comments (3)

    The 2015 Yankees are counting on CC Sabathia’s knee to hold up. And, they are counting on Masahiro Tanaka’s elbow not exploding. But, there’s more!

    The are also counting on Michael Pineda’s maturity, Ivan Nova’s recovery, and, some sort of Eliza Doolittle miracle with Nathan Eovaldi.

    Basically, their entire starting rotation is counting on something that’s not favorable.

    This may just be the season where Chris Capuano makes 25 starts for the Yankees and leads the team in that category for the season.

    Count on that.

      I don’t think I’ll count on that.

      Will some of them go down? Sure. Pitchers are like that.

      All of them? Not likely. Capuano leading the staff in starts? Not likely.

      People have long forgotten that Nolan Ryan pitched about five years with “his elbow on a string”. They also forget that until recently a partially torn ligament wouldn’t have even been known or talked about. Tanaka, for example, could pitch years w/o a problem. Or a day. The same goes for Kershaw, King Felix, Latos, Scherzer, Lester, Cy Young…. It’s all a crapshoot…

      Capuano started 4 games. What’s 21 starts between friends?
