      Yea this Joba rules thing is so retarded. I'm curious to see how they are going to use him in the playoffs. I don't think he will even start in the short series. Does he pitch out of the pen? You might not see Joba until the second round!

      this is what is going to happen...my hunch
      joba will be joba by the playoffs..and can go to 115+ pitches..however
      the yankees are going to finish with the best record thus giving them the decision to chose the playoff format
      they are going to chose the extra day off so yes a 3 man rotation it is..joba will not start in the first round,but will pitch out of the pen
      most likely we will play detroit which means verlander for 2 out of 5 games lol
      live and die by that extra day off

      I'm actually about to head to Yankees Stadium in a few minutes... But not for a baseball game.

      Last night was awesome.
      The place went nuts every time he was up. Everyone was on their feet.
      Swisher is still the man!
      Posada is clutch as hell.

      good 4 game sweep to end Tampa's season. the Joba and the bullpen combined for 8.2 hitless innings. you just knew they were gonna get to the Rays' pen.

      however i HATE how they are handling joba
      this 3 inning leash is retarded..a power pitcher can't even get warmed up until the 3rd..
      he was much better at the beginning of the season..bla bla bla

      I have the same thoughts here.
      He's like the 3rd wheel now, outside of pop ups for an out, he's not delivering lately. His pitch placement has been off lately, he's struggling putting up K's and when he's behind the count, he can't seem to get out of it.
      I think at this point instead of emptying the bullpen after him, when we are behind in score, they should just start with Hughes or Coke, if we are not behind by say the 4th, then bring Joba for 3-4 innings, this way he may be under less pressure. Or just tell him that he's in for 7 from start, this way he can plan his pitch selection better instead of cramming it all into 3.
      Bruney is another pitcher who has been off in his game the last few weeks, I mean come on, how many balls can you throw in a row without a an out? Seems like everytime they bring him in now, I hear a death march in my head.

      the ideal situation is if they are in the second round he is back to himself..they need to start extending him now to 5 innings or even 6
      there are not many starts left in the season.and i thought he was pitching pretty well until they decided he was moving to fast..
      i just don't get holding him to a 3 inning start..i would rather see a pitch count

      Great win.

      he was pitching better when he was going faster on the mound. after they went out to talk to him he started speeding up his delivery and time between pitches and pitched alot better.
      hes also near the end of the limit for innings they set for him this year. pitching in the playoffs is going to send him over that limit so they're trying to slow him down now in games that arent important to have him fresh for the playoffs. hes also most likely tiring down since hes reaching an innings total hes never pitched to before.

      302 is right down the line. Only about 10 feet to the left of being down the line drops off to about 380.

      Its so funny everone says 302 down the RF line.. But its a freaking trick shot to even wrap it around the pole. Where as Yankee Stadium is only 314 to right field line with an 8 foot wall.
      The new Yankee stadium where pop flys turn into HRS.
      And this crap about other teams having the same chances to hit there is stupid. the Yankees have tailored there lineup. How many leftys do they have? Damon, Posada, Tex, Cano, Swisher, Melky, Matsui and every damn one knows if you pull the ball and get it in the air the thing is gone.
      Other teams don't have that many leftys....

      serious Ed. how many lefty hitters have become better hitters by playing in Fenway? or how much has Pedroria's stats been boosted by the fact that he plays in a park with a short LF and has no opposite field power?

      Pedroia is a hell of a hitter he would do well anywhere. You cant sneak a fastball by him. Homeruns likely get a few added but the doubles #s would be the same. The wall also takes away line drive HRS too
      Drew refuses to go the other way generally the same with papi.. What other leftys do we have..? Ellsbury is a slapper. The last player we really had who was a lefty and really used the wall to perfection was Wade Boggs

      Unless the left handed hitter likes to go to the opposite field, not many. Usually playing in Fenway everyday is the LAST place they would want to hit. Especially power hitters.
      Yankee Stadium was built for a left-handed hitter.

      Yeah, it's short to Left but to be fair, Pedroia's a line drive hitter. How many line drives to left have been outs in Fenway that would have been hits in other parks since the left fielder can play so shallow?
      I think it all evens out for the most part in the end though.
