Karsay...

Postby WharfRat » Mon Dec 19, 2005 10:08 pm

I thought this would be of minor interest to Yankee fans. I think Karsay gets kind've a bum rap because he got hurt, but truth be told he was pretty solid in his one healthy year in 2002. Plus I like him because he's a homeboy (Flushing). I'd give a finger to have had that guy back at any point in the last couple years.

Indians bring back Graves and Karsay

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - The Cleveland Indians have signed pitchers Danny Graves and Steve Karsay to minor league contracts with invitations to spring training.

Graves, 32, split last season with the Cincinnati Reds and New York Mets, going 1-1 with a 6.52 ERA and 10 saves in 38 2/3 innings.

Originally drafted by the Indians in 1994, Graves is a two-time All-Star and has a career record of 41-43 with a 4.02 ERA and 182 saves.

Karsay has had an injury-plagued career with the Indians, Oakland, Atlanta, New York (AL) and Texas. He owns a 31-39 record, 3.98 ERA and 41 saves.

Last season, the New York native went 0-1 with a 7.06 ERA and struck out 14 in 21 2/3 innings for the Yankees and Rangers.

Karsay, 33, was a key reliever with the Indians for three-plus seasons from 1998-2001 and posted a record of 15-14 with 22 saves and a 3.23 ERA.

I'm really glad he's getting another chance. You're right. He was lights out in 2002. I remember going to Oakland to see the Yanks play and he was warming up in the pen which we were about 5 rows away from. He had some serious zip on his heater.

No one ever questioned Karsay's stuff, just his abilit to stay healthy. He was different from the other losers we have had in the pen in that respect.

I completely agree. I wasn't trying to defend him or anything. Just sharing my experience.
