The Sox have another exciting comeback win and you start a thread about a yankee pitcher? most of your posts scream "yankee fan" to me.
There is nothing wrong with Hammer's post and he is not a Yankee fan. I don't always agree with Hammer but there are many times I do agree with his point of view. He is like many of us a diehard Sox fan. How you read into his post "yankee Fan" I cannot even fathom.
The Yankee-Red Sox rivalry is a tradition and as much as we dread the Evil Empire team, a pennant race without the Yankees is not the same so I tend to agree with Hammer on this one. But the Eastern Division is so strong with the rebuilding Orioles and Tampa who always seems to be in the race the division always seems to be tight.
As for Kuroda he's had a rough last few games but every player in MLB goes through slumps so to compare him to Becket is a bit silly. Lester started the year strong, went through a tough 6 week stretch and has been pitching well in his last 10 starts.
That's true. Most MLB players go through these periods.
Just look at Felix Hernandez' performance last night.
The nice thing is, the Yankees can't afford a mediocre stretch from Kuroda right now.
[/QUOTE] man, you ain't kidding, especially since there's no telling how much longer the roll that Andy's on will last, and when they will make the decision to actually take Sgt. Longball out of the rotation..
Knowing Pettitte, he'll gut his way through the rest of his starts.
He had his rough patch in June.
But, he seems ok now.
Pitched a heck of a game against the Sox, during the last series.
