In response to J-BAY's comment:
What is amazing is that without 4 of 5 of the starting pitchers that were in the Yankee rotation coming out of camp that the Yankees are only 4 games out and that they beat the Orioles in Baltimore today with Shane Greene on the mound up from the farm system that they don't have.
As Kimmi would put it they're just lucky.
It had nothing to do with they had never faced him before, TWM, and there's not a book on him, yet? Whitley did well for a handful of starts, too, then fell off. We see it all the time. Or the old adage, on any given day, not who you play, when you play them?
That said, good for him. Love to e the kids get the call and do well.
This is true, but how many young pitchers have the Yankees brought up within the last year?
Phelps, Warren, Whitley, Nuno, Betances, Claiborne now Greene. I think at some point they deserve some credit.
Betances in the AS game chosen by the players.
Tanaka, CC, Nova, Pineda all on the DL, Kuroda the last man standing.
If the Yankees had no bad luck they'd have no luck at all.
