It’s Not Whether You Win or Lose….

…yeah, yeah, yeah.  We know. 

This week’s Yeah, Yeah, Yeah Awards go to…

  • David Wells (2-4, 4.71)   Fri 9-14-06          5IP     2ER     1 BB
  • Wrap + Box    Dodgers-3  Padres-2     Wells-L     Maddux-W–19-19–4.22, Broxton-H-9-2.51, Saito-S-19-1.93     

Wells pitched a beautiful game against the Dodgers, excepting the 4th inning, when he  unravelled after surrendering an unheard-of — for him — walk.  Unravelling — for him — nowadays means giving up 2 runs in 5 innings.  Why just 5, I do not know.  Fellow 40+ man Greg Maddux no-hit the Padres into the 7th, leaving Wells no offense to work with.

  • Shawn Chacon (6-6, 6.49)     Th 9-13-06     7IP     2ER     1BB
  • Wrap + Box    Milwaukee 2 @ Pittsburgh 1          Chacon-L     Sheets-W–5-7–4.08, Cordero-S-18–3.61

Chacon drew a hand very similar to Wells’ when he lost 2-1 to the Brewers.  Like Wells, his opposing pitcher — Ben Sheets in Chacon’s case — pitched a no-no deep into the game.  Unlike Wells, he will receive less sympathy, despite his recent return from the DL for knee problems, like Wells, which, unlike Wells’, are unrepaired.  Chacon is playing hurt — what he has is a publically-realeased diagnosis, better than he got from the Yankees, who gave him nothing but rumors, a demotion, and, in the end, a 1-way ticket to Pittsburgh.

    Fantastic idea: the “yeah,yeah,yeah awards”. You need to give one for each position at the end of the season.
