Joba Chamberlain: Not So Fast, Yanks’ Choice of »

With the announcement Thursday that New York Yankees right-handed pitcher Phil Hughes will be the team's fifth starter, a firestorm has arisen over what many now call the misuse of fellow right-handed flamethrower Joba Chamberlain. Chamberlain, 24, was kept on strict pitch and innings limits last season as part of what Yankees brass claimed would [...]

NY Yankees: Phil Hughes Wins Fifth Starter Job, Time »

This week, the race for the Yankees' fifth starter spot finally ended. In what started out as a five man race, ended up having one clear winner for the job. Phil Hughes won the fifth and final starting job for the 2010 season and will be in the rotation with CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett, Andy Pettitte, and Javier Vazquez. Some of the pitchers Hughes [...]

The New York Yankees Have Ruined Joba Chamberlain »

Say what you want about George Steinbrenner and his management style, but I guarantee that the Joba Chamberlain debacle would not have happened under his watch. The word came down today that Phil Hughes has won the fifth starter spot over Joba. It's the right decision–I'm not arguing that. The problem is that the Yankees have spent the last [...]

Yankees Take Next Step in Destroying Joba »

So it was all for nothing. The innings limits, the pitch limits, the extra days off between starts the Yankees forced Joba Chamberlain to undergo during the second half of 2009—that rendered him impotent come the playoffs—under the guise that they were "protecting his arm" so that he could at long last become a full fledged starter [...]

Phil Hughes Wins Yankees’ Fifth Starter Battle »

Manager Joe Girardi and the Yankees staff evaluated the entire spring training and came to the same conclusion I did: Phil Hughes should be the fifth starter. Hughes beat out Joba Chamberlain, Alfredo Aceves, Sergio Mitre, and the recently released Chad Gaudin. Girardi has been very impressed with the much-improved changeup that Hughes has been [...]

2010 MLB Predictions: What May or May Not Derail the »

As a Yankee fan born and raised in the heart of the land that sports the pinstripes, the last thing I and many other dedicated fans want to see is a slump in the 2010 season, especially after nine seasons of lacking a championship win.  Fellow fans of Bronx Bomber nation, it’s possible that we may be facing some hard times this [...]

It’s Official: Phil Hughes is the Fifth Starter »

This announcement doesn’t exactly come as a surprise, but Yankees manager Joe Girardi made it official today, Phil Hughes—not Joba Chamberlain—will be the Yankees fifth starter going into the season. “I think Joba could do either job,” Girardi said, “but right now we feel Hughes is ahead as a starter.” The [...]

Phil Hughes Is Named the Fifth Starter for the New »

The New York Post's Joel Sherman , among others, is reporting that Joe Girardi has officially named Phil Hughes as the Yankees' fifth starter. This has been heavily debated over the course of spring training, but I'm still not sure what the Yankees plan was here. They have seemingly been building Joba Chamberlain up so that he could have the [...]

New York Yankees’ Bench Seems Set with Five More »

The Yankees cut five more players from the big league camp yesterday: outfielder Greg Golson, righties Mark Melancon and Jonathan Albaladejo, and infielders Juan Miranda and Kevin Russo, according to Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger. The cuts of Miranda and Russo have pretty much cemented the Opening Day bench, ensuring a spot for Ramiro [...]

Chad Gaudin Released By New York Yankees »

According to Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger, the Yankees have released righty Chad Gaudin just two days after they put him on waivers. Since his contract was non-guaranteed, the Yankees only owe him 25 percent, or about $737,500, out of the $2.95 million he would have been owed had he made the team. This doesn’t necessarily mean that his days [...]
