2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Thoughts on Scott Patterson not being promoted? Thanks!
(Tony from Brooklyn, NY)
Hey, Tony. Welcome back. I'm not too exercised on Patterson because I figure he'll get his chances. The Yankees figure to be rotating pitchers in and out of the last spot in the bullpen all season long. (Steven Goldman)
2008-03-31 13:00:00 (link to chat)Steven, big fan of your YES work, despite being a Mets fan. Jeff Keppinger is starting at short and batting second for the Reds today, while the Mets just released Ruben Gotay. This makes me sad. Has Willie Randolph inherited Torre's taste in lumpy bench-help, and isn't this a supernally bad idea in the NL? Also: Hrghle. Edwar Ramirez? Blix? Hee hee hee hee. Thanks!
(rtkimmerle from NJ)
Thank you for coming aboard despite your Mets-ness. I actually enjoy following the Mets too. No doubt sports talk radio hosts would call me a fraud for not hating the Mets as much as I like the Yankees, but I'm a baseball fan who enjoys the sport whatever the color of the uniforms, not an unthinking bigot. Anyway, I thought the Mets acted precipitously on Gotay, but I also accept that Gotay was over his head last year and that with pitcher-constricted rosters ("pitcher-creep?") you need your U-INF to be able to sub at short. What was odd about it was that Luis Castillo is in such poor shape.

...As I said of Scott Patterson, Edwar will get his chance down the line. I'm still trying to get a handle on how Girardi will handle his bullpen. That will give us a clue as to when... Blix! (Steven Goldman)
