Death, Taxes, Tanaka: Twins-Yanks Gamer II

Tanaka has been extremely good, by far the Yanks’ most reliable starter.  Makes me sad the Sox seem to have got Japanese pitcher gunshy after Matsuzaka, given Darvish and Tanaka (so far).  It’s not like Irabu or Igawa frightened the Yanks off completely.

Tanaka will take on the substantially less excellent Correia today, in a game I would give 4:1 odds will be a Yankee victory.  Happy Saturday!

  • Nope. We are still garbage.

    Bases loaded with no outs against the worst pitcher in baseball.

    Tex K’s after being up 2-0 and McCann GIDP after starting 3-0.

    Just embarrassing.

  • I think the Yankees have a pretty decent chance at a wild card spot. Maybe the division if the BJs turn out not to be real, just not sure about them.

  • Oh, and RE: the post, obviously the Sox have two great Japanese relievers, I should have said “starters”.

  • Maybe Kendrys can save us.
