View Full Version : Before the complaints begin

Yes, it's true, Brett Jodie didn't make it past the third inning. Remember, though, that Jodie was in A ball at this time last season. He has had a great season, but he is inexperienced. he should be learning at AAA this season, not pitching in the Bronx. He is only here due to injury. Next season may be a different story.
No complaints here. I wished they'd use him out of the bullpen first - sort of like the Astros did with Roy Oswalt.

:cool: No complaints just needs a lot more seasoning. :eek:

He's only a rookie. He needs more time to develop and grow in the minors. He was poised on the mound. I like to see that.

No complaints here. I just don't think he's ready yet (compare Jake Westbrook, who's doing pretty well for the Indians this year), and I liked his poise, too.

His dream turned into a nightmare.You can say he wasn`t ready,but in Yankee Land most times a rookie never gets a second chance.He was a long shot to begin with.In the minors he had excellent control with a good change up. Mistakes up here will be bombed. He needs a good sinking fastball or a splitter.If he has the determination he can pitch somewhere in the Major Leagues but not with the Yankees.
He looked scared S-less out there. There's a reason why he wasn't even in Spring training with everybody else. We should of shipped his ass to cincinnatti instead of Aramboles.
of course he looked s---less. He was in A ball last year. What can you expect. Give the guy time to develop.

What would make Aramboles that much better? Aramboles hadn't pitched above A-ball until this year either, and he's only 19, so Jodie has 5 years on him as it is. If Jodie gets his experience this year at AAA, he could be in the Yankees pitching plans next year. Aramboles would be another full season at AAA, tops. I wouldn't expect to see him in the majors till 2003.
I think getting bombed in your Yankees Stadium debut is a ritualistic acceptance into being a rookie pitcher for the Yankees.
I hope he developes a little movement on his very average fastball. I'm sick of hearing about these so called great pitching prospects. This guys an untouchable and that guys gonna be great. Problem is when they get here they suck. keisler And Lilly are bottom of the rotation type guys. They have been OK. Brandon Knight was awful. Adrian Hernandez was bad. Last year westbrook was so good we traded his ass to cleveland , and he can't even crack there pathetic rotation.

It's called being patient. Prospects don't just show up in the big leagues and become All Stars.
And, Westbrook is starting for Cleveland now, and his numbers are pretty good.

Wow. What a way to break into the Bigs! Second pitch out of his hand and...BOOM! Welcome to the Big Leagues Boy!!! He must have felt pretty bad.

0 complaints at all!

He just needs more minor league experience in AAA and then in a couple of years bring him up.
I thought it was a heck of a move to start him!
Take a chance once in awhile.
Let's see what some of the minor-league guys can do.
How in the heck are you going to find out if they can play in the Majors if they never play there?
Like credit used to be. When I was younger, I couldn't get a credit card.
The reason. I never had credit, no references. How could I get credit then? What the...........?
I can't get credit, cause I never had credit. O.K.?? :confused:
You can't play in the Major League because you never played there.
What am I doing in the minors then?
Even if he pitched well, they weren't going to keep him up in the bigs, they know he still needed to develop a lot of his skills.
There was a slip-up in the rotation and Mr. Torre took advantage of it as he saw fit. Another good move in my book.
Yankees still in 1st.
It was just to see what he had, how far along he was. They feel he is that darn good.
