    Per CBS Yanks reportedly will not pursue Tanaka if he opts out.
    I'm having flashbacks to the FO's response towards ARod opting out.

    Which is why despite how hard it will be to replace him, I agree (if story is true) with the Yanks not pursuing him if he opts out. I can see them giving him something like 6/175 and the elbow going at some point.

    I know it was only his 2nd start but the concerning thing to me is the fact that both starts involved command issues. He was doing well today and it all came apart in the 5th inning as he had trouble locating the plate. Walks and hitting batters were a real problem today, not to mention that 0-2 pitch that Machado. I guess the silver lining today is that Tanaka did not completely cave-in but it still was far from a winning performance.

    ^ yeah, the command issues are troubling. Surprising too given how sharp he looked this Spring.

    So, that has to have been a hot gun in Baltimore, right?

    Brooks baseball had him hitting 97 and the broadcast in that 5th inning had him hitting 95, 96, 97 and as high as 98. Would be baller if he was legit hitting that type of velo again, the first time since his rookie season in MLB & final year in the NPB.

    When was the last time a Yankee pitcher threw a complete game in under 100 pitches?

    You could definitely make that argument. Right up there with May 14th, 2014 against the Mets (that was a complete game shut out, too; 1 more hit, 5 more strikeouts).

    The previous Yankee to pitch a complete game of at least 9 innings in under 100 pitches was Chien-Ming Wang on April 11, 2008, which was also in Boston. The last Yankee to do that in a shutout was David Wells on April 10, 2003. Including tonight, the last four Yankees to do that did it on May 1 or earlier. Four Yankees have done that with 3 or fewer strikeouts and 0 walks. They are Tanaka, Wang, Ramiro Mendoza, and Jimmy Key. The first Yankee baseball-reference has listed did it in 1990. Any queries with pitch counts don't go back anywhere near as far as 1913 because pitch counts from back then are not available.

    It was the 141st time since 1913 that a pitcher pitched a shutout of at least 9 innings with 29 or fewer batters faced, 3 or fewer hits allowed, 3 or fewer strikeouts, and 0 walks. The only Yankees since 1913 to do that before tonight were Scott Sanderson, Tommy John, Bill Stafford, and Carl Mays.

    Great job tonight with the complete game and only 97 pitches to do it.

    They should get as many innings as they can out of his arm.

    Good point.

    Unfortunately, Girardi turns to stone if he allows a starter above 100 pitches.

    I agree 100%. He often doesn't take circumstances into account and goes by the book....his own book (or binder) I might add.

    No doubt. Tanaka essentially cruised tonight, outside of maybe the spot where he induced a big GIDP. That's a different type of 97 pitches. If Tanaka had had more foul balls and was up around 85-90 pitches after 7IP tonight, Girardi would've probably gone batter to batter with him in the 8th. God forbid Tanaka (or any other starter for that matter) get up to 115 pitches to toss a 9-inning CG or even an 8-inning gem.

    Knowing that short leash or quick hook is always there gets into the heads of starters, no matter how proven they are. And I understand the back end of the pen is a major strength but there's a feel for the starter's gastank/fatigue that Joe, as a catcher, should have but just doesn't sometimes. I don't know if that's just his conservative, careful nature or pure obliviousness. It's frustrating either way.
