Notice how John Sterling has had it in for Shawn Chacon the last couple times around, especially time before last? Unless I missed it, he didn’t even get a rehab start off the DL, and then Torre lifted him too early last week, leaving us to hear nothing but how he supposedly can’t last more than 5. Anyway….
Look’s like Loaiza had to assure us that it was just the Rocky Mountain air and that peculiar humidor treatment that they give the baseballs up there that locked jaws like mine in the desire for disbelief as he blew his third start after 2 great outings off the DL. Last time out, he was solid and LONG — went all 9. Hmmm, are the Yankees noticing?
Take a look at these ERA’s:
For a moment, think about Houston and the White Sox last season. Now, think about Detroit. Close your eyes and listen.
Sabathia is pitching tonight, too, against the Cardinals. Should be fun. Right, CC?
