  1. I had no idea up until about a week ago that the Jose Quintana starting for Chicago tonight is the same Quintana that was in our Farm System the last 4years. He was awesome in Hi-A Tampa last yr going 10-2 with a 2.91 ERA but they left him unprotected and now he’s starting in the big leagues for Chicago.

    Chicago started him in AA where he made 9 starts with a 2.77 ERA then called him up straight from AA and he’s been great. In the Majors he’s 2-1 with a 1.25 ERA & 0.96 WHIPin 6 starts. His last 2 starts have been 8 inning shutouts vs the Dodgers & Milwaukee. He’s mostly FB (88-92) & Cutter with a Curve & Change

    Looks like we let a talented lefty slip away. ugh!

  2. I’m a little torn on bringing Phelps back up. They sent him down to get lengthened out to be a starter….now 2 starters go down and they bring him up to pitch in the pen as the long man? Why not get him lengthened then give him a shot as a starter? Oh well….guess they feel they need him tonight in case Warren wets the bed early.

    • I hear ya Fish. I’d rather they keep Phelps down to get stretched out and use Mitchell as the long relief man. Bring Phleps up when he is ready then.

      Also on your point about Quintana the Yankees slow play the prospects so much were other teams don’t.

  3. They said Phelps can throw 75 pitches if need be so not to bad

  4. Yankees could use a good story. Esp from a prospect. I hope to see Warren do well.

  5. Striking out the first guy he faces. NICE!!!

  6. Warren looks to have good movement on his fastball, with a slider and good curveball.

  7. Grandy man can, high temps today and humid should be alot of homers tonight! Grandy thought he popped the ball up on the homer.

  8. Cory Wade is really struggling. He needs a trip to AAA or 2 weeks on the DL He’s been getting absolutely tagged lately – his last 6 outings he’s gone 4 innings allowing 13 Hits and 9 Earned Runs. He’s also prone to the long ball allowing 6 HRs in his last 14.1 ip,

    Wade’s game is all about mixing pitches and excellent command but lately he’s leaving pitches right in the middle of the plate.

  9. Girardi left Wade out there to dry tonight. Definitely expect Cory to be sent down tomorrow.
