    Based on the explosion on twitter, it would appear that Joba Chamberlain did not do very tonight against the Orioles..

    If that's the measuring stick, don't do a before/after on Bernie Williams.

    I don't use Twitter but I imagine it has complete shutdown today.

    Weird beard and all I am disgusted at how fat Joba has allowed himself to be. He is a disgusting slob and an embarrassment to athletes.

    Phil Hughes #5 in all of MLB in least pitches thrown per inning? That's not the guy we knew. Change of scenery worked wonders.

    dude was a rockstar this year. I'm happy for him. I guess getting out of playing half your starts in a band box when you give up fly balls is workin out. I hope he has a great career ahead I him now.

    He had a different repertoire this year. He started throwing the cutter again (with much success) and added a knuckle curve. Getting out of Yankee Stadium probably didn't hurt either.

    whatever disappointment I feel in seeing Phil Hughes succeed in his post Yankee career is more than compensated by my schadenfreude in seeing Joba Chamberlain do terribly in the playoffs. The Yankees were so right to let Joba go

    Watching the Nat in the NLDS got me to thinking about how Tyler Clippard rarely gets mentioned on here. The guy has been one of the best, most consistent set up men in the game 5 years running.

    Never really did understand that trade from the Yankees perspective. At that point Clippard was still a young starting pitcher. You would think they would have given him a chance to succeed or fail in that role (and then convert him to a reliever like Washington ultimately did) rather than trade him for a fungible bullpen arm. 20/20 hindsight I suppose.

    It was a case of the cluelessness of Cashman. He figured that Clippard had no shot to crack his rotation so he traded him for Albaladejo who could pitch out of the pen, not even considering that he should just have Girardi move Clippard to the pen first. It was one of his worst trades. Rarely does a reliever trade turn out so lopsided.

    It was a trade that Cashman has stated numerous times was a mistake on his part because he never tried him as a reliever.
    To all, life is too short, enjoy the baseball season even those that hate me.

    Re: The Former Yankee Performance Thread v4.0

    It's cool to see Clippard become a solid MLB reliever. But he is a reliever. And NYYs have become good at finding and developing them, so you can live with the opportunity cost of seeing Clippard in a Nats uniform.

    As a fan, it actually bothers me more to see Jose Quintana succeed in Chicago; happy for him, but miffed that ChiSox has a 25-year-old southpaw who logs 200 innings and pitches like a #2.

    If you injected truth serum into Cashman, I'd bet he would say his biggest mistake (in recent memory) was leaving Quintana off 40-man roster and allowing him to leave as a minor free agent. They had him in the system for 4 years. So they saw him more than the Mets and more than any other team. You have to self-analyze your system better than that.

    Randy Choate just tossed one into right field on a sac bunt to end the game.

    Only Abreu had to be only 32 or younger in that pic. As for his current, it's certainly not healthy to carry around that kind of weight, particularly in the belly, at any age.

    Bernie Williams' rookie card and in 2000 at age 32. Your point?

    Indeed, and I was there.

    Hope he can help the Giants win the pennant.

    He's managed to put together quite a lengthy and solid career since he was traded to the Expos.

    So, is Ishikawa the only former Yankee in the 2014 WS?
