Not to worry?

I say BS. We're down to one reliable starter in CC, maybe two if Nova can come through. What's Pettitte going to be like when he returns if he's worried about blowing out his groin again? AJ looks like a wash out at this point, and Hughes and Vasquez are only good against light hitting teams. There are no light hitting teams left on the schedule, and especially in the PO's, if we make it that far.

 

Now, to add to our worries, we're in sudden need of a capable catcher. Cervelli no longer looks like one, catching, throwing or otherwise. Posada is no better if he catches too often, which is 2 or 3 days in a row at his age. I doubt JG will bring up Montero or Romine this late, so that leaves Moeller if we still have him. Where is Jose when we need him?

I share your reservations about the Yank's pitching staff and agree that catching is a problem. I can't believe the way AJ and Javier have folded like lawn chairs during the stretch run. Thank heavens the minor league kiddie corps has come through.....so far. Second time through the same teams will reveal if they are for real. Lot of kids do well at first because there's no real data on them. On the bright side, the relief corps seems to be shaping up. I don't worry about Petite - he's a big time gamer and gets the job done when it's all on the line. But after CC and him, it's scary. Hopefully Nova continues to impress.

 

It looks like they will have to slug their way to victory and few teams win the whole enchilada by slugging it out. It always comes down to pitching, pitching, and more pitching.

I have it all worked out. I scream for Cervelli's ass, and the next day he bangs in the go ahead run, then late in the game makes a game saving catch in the dirt with the tying run on third. The day before, I yelling for Joe G to send Nunez down and bring up a hitter. What does he do? His first homer and 4 rbi's. I think it's time I got on Jete's case.

Yeah....it wouldn't hurt to get on AJ's case as well.

 

Morning news says we were awarded Ted Lily off waivers, but Dodgers are now hedging. Lily's got some decent stuff and it never hurts to have another lefty around. Could be some decent help down the stretch.
