Formula Joe’s presser after the Nibbles  Tanaka melt down game on Sunday  was finally located on

What apparently confused our cracked staff,  it came under the heading Three Things the Yankees Can  Do  with Chase Headley.. I’m sure the DonB has more then 3 things he’d like to  do with Chase Headley….. but luckily for Headless,  the DonB was busy over the weekend trying to  round up  a group  to  buy  the Bombers from the Steinbrenner’s..

The DonB has  also arranged a tête-à-tête with A-Rod this morning, Alex not showing up  to Jeets Retirement Party didn’t go un-notcied… ng

I just watched the DVRd Ceremony.
NO # 13 ??
Alex ?
Hello ???

Anyway  when  asked what happened to Tanaka, all P-Joe could muster was “no splitter and no slider” but he had no idea why?

Damn now that’s a $4M per yr job we’d like to have, your Ace destroys Derek Jeter Night, he received  the type of Boo’s from  the Bombers faithful reserved for the likes of David Ortiz, or ARod on the road in Boston, and the best Girardi  could come up  with  is that?

Girardi  then  went on to  say  “we’re trying to  figure it out”, that  would be beneficial to  the rest of this Bombers season, because sans the Boston  gem, Nibbles hasn’t pitched all  that  well, in fact at $22M per, he’s sucked

Tanaka’s first two months have been shaky, his 5.80 ERA is tied for ninth worst for 97 starters with enough innings to qualify for the ERA title.

If you take out the Red Sox 9 inning, 3 hit shut out, Tanaka has given up  29 runs in 36 innings, that’s a 7.25 ERA.. He’s also been mush  since the Boston massacre  game giving up  15 earned runs in 15 innings for a 9.00 ERA in May

At the moment Tanaka is kissing his well bundled opt out good bye, which is good and bad for the Yanks…

Unless he figures it out, or he’s hurt, the Bombers will be stuck  with him for 3 more years and $67M…That’s bad….

If they  can get him back on track, and the elbow tear is managed, they have an Ace-ish type pitcher for $22.3M per, almost $9M per cheaper then David Price.. Not that  two  wrongs make a right, but misery loves company..

Big Grand Papi

Yesterday Francesa hosted Big Grand Papi who has a book out, Papi: My Story, I’m not sure of the publisher, Francesa got amazingly tongue tied at 8 seconds in and….. maybe you can figure it out, good luck….

  2. Royals are coming off a sweep of the O’s so maybe they’re due to lose… they’ve won 6 of their last 7 vs Tampa and Baltimore so they’re getting a steady diet of AL East

  3. Yanks have a big hole at first base…. Choi is now out with a hammy, not that they were ever entertaining him as an option, Austin might be ready in 2 weeks?

  6. CC Sabathia has a 9.58 ERA in his past four starts and opponents are hitting .354 against his fastball this season

    Francesa had a caller today who tried to explain who Chance Adams was and wondered if CC stumbles would they replace him with Adams
    Franny went on to bash the caller and he continues to wax what a great contract Sabathia was
    He was great last yr Franny said
