    [QUOTE]redsoxkimmi, why do find this funny, look at guys like Gradyson and Colon and Garcia, all playing way over their heads as is the rest of the team.

    I am happy, I am a sox fan and the sox are solidly in first place again.  What could be better.

    Right on CYDI.  I don't know about 'solidly' in first place, but these are good times for Red Sox fans.  Life is good!

    I almost feel bad for the yankee fans, they really thought they had a chance this year and they are watching it all go down the drain.

    [QUOTE]of course we do.  Can you honestly compare colon and garcia to Bedard and Miller.  Please use your head on this one.  The yankees are old and fat, how long do you expect them to last this summer.  I give them 2 more weeks max.

    Exhbit A: This guy is nothing more than a misinformed rah-rah type; and while Bedard is a very good pitcher and a great pickup that Theo picked up via a 3-team 12th Hour masterstroke, he apparently knows nothing about his injury history; just like his denial about Milwood being in the RS wings.

    in comparison, Colon and garcia are much more likely to be injured before the end of this season than Bedard or Miller.  That is why Bedard and Miller are a much better tandum than Freddie and the Fat Man

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: yanks will not go away : you've been saying that for two months now. It's August already and there's barely 60 days left in the season. They miight get injured, but can't we say the same about Youklis who has only played more than 145 games in a season one time in his entire career? Or Beckett who only started more than 30 games 1x in the last 5 years?; or wakefield who is 7 years older than colon. The Yankees couldn't make a deal; there wasn't a deal to be made. No one else traded for a premium pitcher besides Cleveland -- and no one knows if he's a premium pitcher.
    Posted by pri360[/QUOTE]

    60 days is 35% of the season, and now we're past the point where the Yankees can do anything about it.  The Red Sox were built to withstand injuries or ineffectiveness from Beckett, Dice-K and Lackey - that's why they brought Wake back and signed Miller, Aceves, and now Bedard.  But keep it in perspective - Beckett has missed a few games here and there; with Colon and Garcia they have a combined one healthy season out of their past ten. 

    As for Garcia, he's got a WHIP of 1.3, which is his career average.  He's not having a career year - he's just getting career results.  Like I said, I could be wrong, but I'm looking at the probabilities.  Even healthy, it's unlikely Garcia's ERA does not rise significantly by the end of the season.

    slomag, I believe Garcia's era will blow up to over 5.5 by the end of the year, there is no way  he can continue the season like he has so far.

     Colon hasn't pitched this much since 2005. In the past six years, Colon has made a grand total of nine starts after the All-Star break -- and hasn't won any of them.

    He's 0-5 with a 5.51 ERA. And these numbers were posted before Colon started injecting his own fat and stem cells into his arm. But they are real -- and real scary for the Yankees.

    Garcia might not provide Colon or Hughes cover, either. Last year, Garcia averaged six innings and a 4.36 ERA per start in the first half. He struck out 5.6 batters per nine innings.

    After the 2010 break, Garcia averaged just five innings per start and his ERA rose to 5.10. His strikeouts dropped to 4.4 per nine innings. He gave up more homers (one every six innings, compared to one every 7.5).

    So how much longer can Colon and Garcia keep it up?

    Garcia hasn't shown signs of waning -- 7-6 with a 3.13 ERA -- just yet. But if the past predicts the future, the Yankees might have already seen the best of Colon and Garcia.

    It might be left to Hughes or Ivan Nova -- who is currently waiting in Triple-A -- to pick up the old guard's slack. Especially with the market for a big-time starters looking bleak.

    You need help; period. Partly due to your persistent tendencies towards delusional hypocrisy, but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    aliases?  please.  I have one name and one ID here.  You are again making up things and attempting to pass them off as facts just as you do in your baseball discussions.  You refuse to elaborate on your initial accusation which is also very telling.

    I know better than to elaborate with you, based on past experience. Posting facts, photos and/or raw data doesn't matter with you. However, try this on for size; go check Bedards' IP totals the last several seasons

    ok, and I will compare them to colon............let's see colon in 2010 was ZERO and Bedard was 83.  2009 colon was  62 and bedard was 81.  so  what is your point........colon is more reliable than bedard?

    That may not be until "November" when they earn their salary.  How I wish we had a game or 2 from April when the only time they showed up was to collect their checks.

    Perhaps you should read my original post, and we wouldn't have to go on this merry-go-round, BTW convenient how you left out the other Pitchers in the argument. You're now in ignore, because, quite frankly, you're a homerish infant that I don't want to waste anymore time on. There's plenty of reasonable and intelligent RS posters I shall continue to have dialogue with instead.

    Actually many of the regular Yanks are playing under what they are capable of....it could be scary if they play to what they are capable of.

    Are Bedard and Miller going to be on the Yankees or the Phillies in the World Series?  Doubtful, I don't know where you come up with this stuff.
