Fausto Carmona obviously had a bad day, but he's not a great pitcher. If our offense can't hit this guy, I'll be unhappy.

he's not that bad. he is 28-26 with a 4.27 ERA in his career.

he's not that bad. he is 28-26 with a 4.27 ERA in his career.

He had one good year. His other years have been pretty bad, including a 5.44 ERA and a K/BB ratio on the wrong side of 1.00 for 2008. He doesnt give up a lot of homers, but aside from that he's not scaring many hitters.

Calling my shot: Soria will not pitch tonight.

Why? Despite the apparent weakness in our lineup we completely destroy the Indians 9-1, no homers, just a lot of hits. 7IP, 0ER, 8K for Greinke, garbage run given up in the 9th.

I meant for the game. I think the calls in Chicago were pretty good. Every Ump is going to miss one or two. I was at two of the Yankee games so I couldn't see and didn't have my radio with me to hear what the announcers were saying.

It's really sad that Mark Fidrychleft this world today. There was a great article about him back in 80 or 81 in SI that kind of chronicled his "Grienke-ness". He had major shoulder surgery and was rehabbing for a tryout with the Red Sox. Don't think he got past the Sox AAA affilliate.

Because a guy with an OBP of .0000000 should never (imo) wave at the first pitch.

Because Carmona has been all over the stadium this inning. There's a very solid chance Pena could stand up there w/o moving the bat and draw a BB.

Need more reasons? Just because a guy made a routine big league play, doesn't relieve him of playing smart Bball at the plate.
