wow, those Yankee rooks learn fast.
 
2007-05-02 04:45:46 AM  
The Yankees are in last place.

Is this where I sign for "submitted this with funnier headline?"... cool.

This is pretty incredible. If I was Jeter, I'd be expecting an anvil to fall on my head any minute now
 
2007-05-02 08:49:33 AM  
so he was their only healthy pitcher left, right?
 
2007-05-02 08:51:16 AM  
Well, at least the Yanks have the best starting rotation on the DL.

It's gonna be a long season...

Ohhh, damn you. I feel bad for laughing at that.
What's next? The bullpen car's going to run someone over? Igawa gets food poisoning eating bad sushi? priestrape isn't too far off - I'm wondering where the anvil's going to come from, too. I understand that injuries happen, but christ almighty, enough already..

Just wait. The rest of the American League is about to get Carl PavanOWNED!!!
 
2007-05-02 09:09:17 AM  
They are going to start calling Colter Bean "The Iron Horse."
 
2007-05-02 09:14:24 AM  
BTW, anyone see the numbers on that kid pitching AAA for the Giants affiliate? They were talking about him on Mike and the Mad Dog yesterday. Ridiculous numbers. I'll try and find a link.
 
2007-05-02 09:15:45 AM  
Ok, the kids name is Tim Lincecum. Check out his numbers here. (pops)

Yeah, Linecum. I was gonna draft him in my keeper league but Yahoo! doesn't have him existing yet. He pitched in the majors last year for a bit, right?

HulkHands: He pitched in the majors last year for a bit, right?

I don't think he has pitched in the pros.

From Wiki:

"Lincecum was selected by the Chicago Cubs in the 48th round (1408th overall) of the 2003 MLB amateur entry draft, but did not sign. He instead opted to play at Washington, and was selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 42nd round (1261st overall) of the 2005 draft, but again opted not to sign. The next year in 2006, he was drafted 10th overall by the San Francisco Giants, becoming the first player from the University of Washington to be taken in the first round. He signed a $2.025 million signing bonus on June 30, which was, at the time, the highest amount the organization had ever paid to any amateur player.

Minor Leagues

2006

Lincecum made his professional debut on July 26, 2006 with the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes (Giants' Class A- Short Season affiliate) against the Vancouver Canadians, pitching one inning and striking out all three batters he faced. After his second outing on July 31 against the Boise Hawks, in which he pitched three innings, striking out seven and allowing just one baserunner, he was promoted to the Class A-Advanced San Jose Giants. In his first start in San Jose on August 5 against the Bakersfield Blaze, he pitched 2 2/3 innings, allowing three runs (2 earned), and striking out five. Lincecum finished the year 2-0 with a 1.95 ERA, striking out 48 and walking 12 in 27 2/3 innings pitched. He also got the victory in the opening game of the California League playoffs, giving up one run on five hits in seven innings, striking out ten and walking one against the Visalia Oaks (Visalia would wind up winning the series 3-2).

2007

Lincecum is currently a member of the Fresno Grizzlies in the AAA Pacific Coast League. In the month of April, he pitched five times, allowing one run in 31 innings (ERA 0.29) on twelve hits, walking eleven and striking out 46 (13.4 K/9IP), including 14 in six innings of his final start in the month. He was awarded the PCL Pitcher of the Week award twice in the three weeks of April competition."

I think it will take several more decades of sucking before the curse is 'reversed'

Yeah, it'll be some shiat like when Ken Huckaby landed on Jeter's shoulder a few years ago, or when Quantrill hurt his knee fielding a ground ball in Japan.
 
2007-05-02 09:56:12 AM  
And I thought the Blue Jays had the worst luck with its players...

/lost its closer and 2 of its starting lineup to the DL
//sheesh

RodneyToady: Well, at least the Yanks have the best starting rotation on the DL.

comedy gold, that is.
 
2007-05-02 10:15:18 AM  
Shame. He had a hell of a good game going.

/Rangers fan
//but to get no-hit TWICE in two weeks? Which is what would have likely happened
 
2007-05-02 10:22:51 AM  
Yeah know, this may be a blessing in disguise for the Yanks. They really didn't want to bring him up till about June or July anyways, and now that's about when he is coming back.

A shame, I was looking forward to a King Felix-Hughes matchup.

The Cubs would like to thank you for taking that dubious distinction from them. Now if the Cubs could only find a way to place their entire bullpen on the DL, they might start winning some games.

priestrape: This is pretty incredible. If I was Jeter, I'd be expecting an anvil to fall on my head any minute now

Or on his hamstring.

Watched the whole game last night. Hughes has the most baffling change up I've ever seen. He made several Rangers look completely foolish. The bat was through the zone, and then the pitch crossed the plate. Absolutely dominant. Not that the Rangers are a good hitting team right now, but they only got two balls out of the infield.

So of course, he gets hurt. By the time he comes back, the Yanks should have Mussina back at least, so back he goes to the minors.
 
2007-05-02 11:49:34 AM  
I'm a Sox fan and I feel sorry for the kid. I wanted him to suck, not get hurt.
 
2007-05-02 11:57:13 AM  
Meanwhile, Clemens' hand gets stronger and stronger -- and Yanks' payroll will be back in the $Quarter Beellion range shortly.

$200 mill just doesn't spend like it used to.
 
2007-05-02 12:26:44 PM  
I think at this point Clemens is gonna get "Little E'd" and George is just going to give him a piece of the company.

/ lol, best pitching staff on the DL... FTW!
 
2007-05-02 12:41:52 PM  
It is like somebody put the entire Yankee pitching staff on the cover of Madden and never told anybody.
 
2007-05-02 12:43:20 PM  
Yanks just haven't been the same since they traded Costanza to Tyler chicken. He was obviously the real brains of the Yankee dynasty. I heard the Red Sox picked him up in a trade for Chicken Pretzel Concessions in 2004.

LessthanZero: so back he goes to the minors.

Nah...I think Hughes is a starter now. He will be back around the time they were planning on calling him up even before the rotation imploded.
 
2007-05-02 03:43:49 PM  
Gimpy and acefox made me lolz...

Maybe if they had cotton uniforms they'd play more relaxed and get hurt less...
 
2007-05-02 05:01:55 PM  
I got two words for the Yankees: hot tub.
 
2007-05-02 05:25:53 PM  
I heard they just fired the conditioning coach. About time if it's true. Anyone heard this?
 
2007-05-02 07:13:36 PM  
Yup, according to SI he was fired. It's about time.

Sorry for the linky but here it is:

Been hearing a lot of complaints about the guy from voices your way. I'm still expecting him to be unmasked, and we find out it's Bill Lee.
