2011-01-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Steve, What are your estimates of the ERAs needed from the Yankees' 4th and 5th starters so that the team can win a post-season berth?
(bumphadley from NJ)
I love the reference to Bump Hadley, noted headhunter. If the offense is as solid as it should be, the Yankees should have some flexibility with the RA of their back-end starters, and don't forget the bullpen should be pretty reliable as well, so it's not like they have to go seven every time out. I'm not sure why we should get crazy if they pitch to a 5.00 ERA. Phil Hughes did it from May 15 on and nearly won 20 games. Not every pitcher on the Yankees has to be Steve Carlton '72. (Steven Goldman)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hiya Christina! Did you happen to see what Cyrt Schilling wrote in his blog today? "As I stated yesterday the pendulum is swinging very heavily in the direction of it just being over. Iíve never sat around and not gotten ready to head to Florida, well not in 23 or so years anyway, so to me that will likely be the last real test for me and whether or not I want to put the time and effort into getting after it one more time." Any thoughts? I've always kind of liked Schilling...
(lpiklor from Chicago)
Yeah, I think it would definitely be a shame to see Schilling leave the game this way, but what are the possible alternatives? Tom Glavine's going to go down fighting, but it doesn't look like that'll end well. Nobody should want to be the next Steve Carlton (for this reason, among others). While I don't think anyone could ever see eye to eye with Schilling on everything, it's always been easy for me to root for him because he's a fellow games geek/geekette; it's sort of like when Lenny Dykstra talked about Strat in '86, and how that felt for Strat-o players nationwide.
