Throw strikes

This is going to be a quick post – I’ve spent the last week finishing up grad school stuff so this blog hasn’t been too much of a priority.

Just wanted to issue one complaint in an otherwise solid Yankee win: the Yankees need to stop walking people.  I am starting to really believe that Rivera could pitch another 10 years, simply because he doesn’t walk anyone.  Yes, Mo is great because of the cutter and his unflappable nature and all that.  But at the end of the day, he is so consistent in part just because he doesn’t walk anyone.  Guys like Robertson and Melancon need to take that to heart, because they certainly have the stuff to be very good relievers.  Same for Joba of course – he just needs to pick up the tempo and challenge people.  All these guys are young so hopefully they’ll learn, but it does get frustrating to watch.
