    Yeah Kennedy was a bust alright.

    He was drafted in 2006 and went right through the Yankees A, AA, AAA his first season in the pros.

    He missed a season his last with the Yankees for surgery of an aneurism in his pitching arm.

    That's why the Yankees got Curtis Granderson for him. Because Arizona thought he would be a flop.

    In 2007 Kennedy and Hughes were depended on and did not produce one win.

    The Yankees stole Pineda from Seattle. Kuroda is not proven but a descent 5th starter.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Kurodo signs with Yankees : Dude you're going overboard, the Pineda move was a good move because he's gonna be a stud but they gave up a stud to get one.  As for Kuroda, I'm not that pumped he's gonna be 37 years old in February and had an ERA just over 3.00 in the NL West last year, that translates to 4.00 in the AL East.  I hope he is a good # 4.

    That's not true, where do you get your information from?

    You continue to make statements that are flat out false.

    2007 was Kennedy's rookie season he was only 22 years old and he had 1 win pitching 19 innings for the Yankees.

    http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.cgi?id=kenneia01&year=2007&t=p

    In 2007 Hughes had  cracked ribs was shut down after winning 5 games and finally came back in the 2007 post season in long relief against Cleveland, pitched a great game that the Yankees won.

    Re: Kurodo signs with Yankees

    Come on AL34 - you are all over the place on this one. 2007, both pitchers just got a taste of the majors in September. It was 2008 where they fell a bit. Hughes was a major factor in the 2009 championship year for NY. Hughes had an excellent 2010 and ran out of steam and then was injured in 2011. Kennedy and Jackson were highly touted. Kennedy ran aground in 2008 as NY put all their eggs in one basket with the kids. They traded Kennedy and Jackson to get Grandy whom most here at the time were hysterical laughing about saying how the Yanks got ripped off.

    Jackson became the starting CF for Detroit, great speed, excellent defense and they got Phil Coke, solid LHer. Kennedy was a CY candidate for S.D. in his 2nd full season with them.  In this trade, Detroit also got Max Scherzer rom S.D.

    A win-win for all three teams.

    As to this off season, Kuroda is a one year stop gap, giving Betances another full year in the minors. And the Sea. trade fills needs for both teams. How that works out, we really won't know for several years.

    Wrong...According to wikipedia it was Cano's father who played in the Houston organization, not Robinson Cano.

    Re: Kurodo signs with Yankees

    I will admit that Hughes is on the bubble this season.

    And that he has not quite lived up to expectations.

    He did pitch well out of the pen 2009 when they won the WS, and won 18 the next season in the rotation.

    He came into camp last season overweight and out of shape and his velocity was down.

    Prior to that he has had a host of health issues.

    But that being said he's still a young pitcher, he has spent the winter at the fat farm working out.

    I'm guessing that the rotation of CC, Pineda, Kiroda and Nova leave AJ, Hughes and Garcia battling it out in camp for the 5th starter.

    Stand corrected it was 2008. I was wrong on Cano thinking of someone else.

    [QUOTE]yes, the yankees just secured second place with those moves - better moves than the Sox but that rotation is no match for the Rays.....not to mention Detroit, Texas, and the Angels.......I'd rather lay low this year and position ourselves for 2013.......we need a good 162 games to wash off the lingering stink that Theo left on us and then we could start anew.

    While you might be right that the Rays' starting rotation gets the nod over the Yankees, Mitch, "no match" borders on hyperbole....You also forgot to mention that the Rays bullpen is "no match" compared to the Yankee pen, and that the Bombers suddenly become an offensive juggernaut if the Rays power and hitting is the operative baseline...

    Re:  Hughes - his 18 win season was due to a great first half....in the second half (not to mention the AS game and playoffs) he reverted back to a so-so starter which is where he resides today....

    I think NY went with Kuroda because he was willing to take a one year deal. Edwin Jackson, whom the Yanks liked still is pushing for a long term mega-bucks deal.

    Kuroda is a solid pitcher, I'm estatic that the Yankees picked him up.

    I wonder what you'd be saying if he signed with Boston?

    I know it's the ALE but he has solid stuff, 3.07 ERA last season.

    Let's say that ERA increaes a few ticks in the AL, still better then AJ, Colon or Garcia.

    And he gives innings.

    Agreed.

    And then came into camp last season with moobs.

    He is clearly on the bubble this season.

    Look the moves the yankees made helped their pitching staff more than I think Bard and Aceves, who are better suited for bull pen work, will.

    But Kuroda is a #3 starter at best.  He's getting older.  Will never put up the #'s he did last year......in the NL......in a big park, etc..........Is he better than AJ or Colon?  Sure but so are about 200 other pitchers.......the key will be Nova's development.......but even still, I think the Rays take the division this year......even if the yankees make the playoffs how do they get past Detroit, Texas, and the Angels who, even in past years can't get past in the playoffs.....

    Exactly.

    It was believed last season that Manny Banuelos would be ready this season.

    But the thinking is now that the Yankees would prefer to leave both Betances and Banuelos at AAA for 2012 to work on control.

    Plus they felt they rushed Hughes, Joba and Kennedy because of the circumstances at that time and do not want to repeat the same mistakes.

    Best thing to do w/ him is put him in the pen and let him become their Aceves.  Kinda of a way for da "Ca$h"man to cover up yet another one of his boners....

    This reminds me of early 2004 when the Yankee swooped in and traded for A-rod after the Sox deal blew up. It was like Armaggedon among Sox fans. I seem to remember that worked out pretty well. Everyone needs to relax, and hope the Sox front office doesn't panic.

    [QUOTE]Cherrington better get motivated if the Yankees pick up Pineda and Kuroda instead of picking up the retread garbage he has been signing. We are not paupers or bottom feeders but we are behaving like it.
    Posted by AL34[/QUOTE]

    I don't think most of us were surprised to see the Yankees make a move with the pitching staff.  All I can say is I'm not proclaiming the Yankees being better like most sports writers and fans.  Pineda is young and has an upside that could work out in the longrun but I will predict now Kuroda will be another Burnett in the AL and being placed in a "high pressure" situation.

    In other words I'm not worried and the Yankees gave up their best prospect in my opion in Montero.  

    With that said,
    I still think the Sox need Garza because of the competitive nature and experience in the AL East he would bring to the club.  I was happy with the Melancon and Bailey moves but again, neither is better than Bard, Aceves or Pap so our team really hasn't improved much, if at all until proven otherwise.  I also agree its a long shot we have taken before and failed on when signing a bunch of "has been" pitchers in hopes one will perform a miracle for us.
