It's Moseley Easy For Yanks In Win

Yankees manager Joe Girardi was impressed enough to say he may have found a replacement in the starting rotation until Andy Pettitte returns from injury.

Dustin Moseley did enough to earn another start after throwing six innings of one run ball in his first starts since last April. The righty has battled back through an arm and hip surgery.

While he said he “felt calm from the get-go,” Moseley admitted he may have been trying to hard in the first inning.

That’s really the only time Moseley got in a jam. In what could have developed into a disaster, the pitcher got out of a bases loaded jam allowing just one run.

After the first inning, Moseley calmed down and gave the Yankees all they could ask for. He would go six innings, giving up just one run on four hits.

55 of his 83 pitches were strikes as Moseley showed confidence and attacked the strike zone all night. His next start will come Tuesday at Yankee Stadium against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Yankees have been linked to some starting pitchers as the trade deadline approaches but this quality start by Moseley may make them think twice. Their focus is likely more on the bullpen.

David Robertson pitched another impressive inning, striking out two batters in the seventh. Chan Ho Park on the other hand continues to struggle.

I’ve been calling for the Yankees to get rid of Park for a while now. His name has been brought up in trade talks as the Yankees are trying to shop him. However, who would want him? I can’t find any reason why a team would want to trade for Park at this point. Just release him!

In two innings of work in the Yankees blow out win, Park gave up two hits and three runs while walking three batters. Only two of the runs were earned. Park also threw two wild pitches. The guy is terrible, get rid of him!

Other Notes

Robinson Cano has been heating up again of late. He homered for the second straight game. It was the second time this season that Cano has homered in consecutive games. It was home run number 20 for Cano this year.

Alex Rodriguez still stands at 599 career home runs. However, I am not concerned. A-Rod is swinging a hot bat lately and producing big numbers for the Yankees. He had three more RBI’s last night and now has 31 in 24 games in July.

Curtis Granderson is also beginning to swing a hot bat. In his last eight games, the centerfielder is 13-for-32 with four doubles, three home runs, and 14 RBI’s.

This is a perfect time for these players to get hot as the Yankees now travel to Tampa to take on the division rival Rays. The Yankees head into this three games series with a two game lead over Tampa Bay in the American League East. The Rays have won eight of their last ten, including six in a row. Tampa is 30-20 at home this season.
