    Yeah, that was weird.

    Something about overreacting to something that happened Saturday.

    If Kennedy and Hughes would have performed better, I think Joba would have remained in the bullpen.

    And realize, 'gola, the "way up" is less than one season...starting last year at Class A Tampa, then moving to Trenton in June, Scranton in July and the Bronx in Auguust.

    Not with Wang hurt, too. It would have become Mussina, Pettitte, Hughes, Kennedy, Chamberlain.

    True, but they maybe could have survived better with Rasner in the rotation if Hughes and Kennedy would have come close to expectations.

    Well, Hank's plan all along was the move him to the rotation but June in place of whoever was doing badly.

    Funny thing is, I'm driving back from Pa. last night and decide the run the risk of listening to sterling and waldman on the radio. Through 2 innings, Sterling was putting Joba in the freaking Hall of Fame ... saying he had done everything you'd excpect to establish himself as the Yankees ace, their No. 1 starter, their stopper, this is the guy you want starting a tough 10-game road trip because you know he'll get it started on the right foot.
    He quoted Hank as saying he wanted Joba to become the Yankees Josh Beckett, then Sterling added: "He might be there already and if he's not he will be very soon."
    I had to pull off the road and puke.

    Well, he has been very good. Now we just have to see if he's healthy. Kennedy is pitching great in AAA, and should be here instead of Ponson, so I hope he'll get the call if they need someone.

    They apparently are waiting on Hughes who made rehab starts in Tamap and Trenton and will ppitch in Tripl a Tonight or tomorrow.
    They seem to be down on Kennedy for now.

    Oh, and Carl Pavano is rehabbing at Double A Trenton!

    Apparently Geise is starting in place of Rasner and they are moving Rasner to the pen for Friday's game.

    Note to Lou Piniella.

    When you have a one-run lead and three pretty capable righties in the pen, don't keep putting the guy who gives up a run every outing out there.

    As The Good Doctor would say if he were here:

    Fuck Bob Howry!

    Hughes hasn't thrown more than 65 pitches in a game yet has he?

    Since the injury that is. I thought I read that somewhere.
