Why Bedard makes sense for the Yankees

Courtesey of zimbio.com

While landing Ubaldo Jimenez would certainly make a bigger splash, another available pitcher would probably make more sense for the Yankees: Erik Bedard. No, Bedard is not as good of a pitcher as Jimenez, and no, he does not have as much upside.  He can however still be a productive pitcher and comes at a […]

Phil Hughes: Mechanics Breakdown

Phil Hughes Mechanics Breakdown

Phil Hughes: Better suited to be a Starter or Reliever?

This will be one of those questions […]
