|2008-06-20 13:30:00 (link to chat)||Please tell me that Dan Giese can do a respectable-enough impression of a major league pitcher to prevent "Sir Sidney, The Return." Please. Lie to me if you have to.|
(Rob from Andover, CT)
|Giese can pitch. He throws lots and lots of strikes, and in the new American League, you can survive that way. He's unquestionably a better pitcher than Ponson.
Lightning round. (Joe Sheehan)
|2008-06-17 15:00:00 (link to chat)||Who is the best internal option to replace Wang in the Yankee rotation (at least until hughes or kennedy is ready)? are Alfredo Aceves or Dan McCutchen in the running if you are Cashman?|
(Dan from World Financial Center, NY)
|In the short term, Dan Giese is probably going to get the ball. He's a journeyman with good control but little upside; his best-case scenario is probably akin to that of the job Darrell Rasner is doing, keeping them in ballgames and waiting for the cavalry to kick some ass but putting some strain on the bullpen as well.
If Giese wears out his welcome and/or Ian Kennedy is throwing the ball well, he's probably the second option after he finishes rehabbing over the next couple of weeks.
I don't know a lot about McCutchen yet. he put up decent numbers last year between High A and Double-A, but he doesn't miss many bats; he's got 5.9 K/9 at Triple-A as we speak, and his EqSO rate last year was about 4.5. He's going to be in that same class as Rasner as well, a guy who if he hits his spots and maintans control could be moderately useful, but he's nowhere near as experienced as Rasner, so I'd expect the going to be rockier. But yeah, I think he might get a shot, even if it's simply as a Brandon Claussen-like audition for a deadline deal.
Aceves I know nothing about beyond his current numbers. Yeah, he's lit up A and Double-A, but he's also 25, so that's not surprising given that he's facing competition that's a few years younger. (Jay Jaffe)
No BP Roundtables have mentioned this guy.
