DateQuestionAnswer
2008-09-03 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, any reason why the yankees are choosing to sit Al Aceves and not call up Chase Wright while the worst Aruban baseball player (Ponson) continues to pitch every five games for the yankees? what gives, either of those two should at least get an audition for the job, no?
(DanLong from WFC, NYC, NY)
Veteran. I kid, I kid. Seriously though, there's some sort of massive uprising for Chase Wright? The Yankees might feel like they've already seen that act, and they're not exactly eager for an encore. Guy can't miss bats. (Kevin Goldstein)
