I just hope Embree's straight low 90s fastball stays straight and dead center over the plate. He has no offspeed stuff, so he needs that thing up higher, and at the corners.
Some scouts claim that he's gotten better lately and is just a change of scenery away. Time will tell, but I know the Sox aren't happy that the Yankees ended up with him as opposed to anyone else.
oh yah. i hate the yankees signing washed-up meatball pitchers. makes me reminisce for felix heredia, who i miss terribly... whenever there was a fire last year, heredia would come in with the gasoline.
