Joba on his way to being a starter!

Postby kmoneybags » Wed May 21, 2008 10:13 pm

On the post game interview with Kim Jones, Girardi stated that the process has "officially" started of making Joba a starter. He pitched 2 innings and was using his change-up a bit more than usual. Pretty exciting.

I am praying that this is legit. My roto keeper league's pitching staff has been absolutely dealing (366 IP 28 W 335 K 3.02 ERA) and would love to get Joba in there sometime in June. I like having Joba and Okajima combining for nice stats but gimme Joba in a starting role please. :-)

It's not over until he's starting, struggles, and NYY resists the fan backlash to banish him back to the pen.

I don't like it either. There is no one who can do what he does as the bridge to Mo. The Yankees are still in it, of course, but the SP staff top to bottom is not deep enough to get them to the playoffs. They dealt themselves this hand and now think Joba is the ace up the sleeve that will turn things around?

So you readily admit the rotation sucks but you're opposed to moving your dominant young arm to a starting role? Where's the logic in that? Joba is immensely more valuable if he can be effective as a starter. And this isn't a panic move. This has been the plan since the beginning. Even if the Yankees don't make the playoffs, this is the right move to make.
