Do you remember the last time you saw pitcher Chien-Ming Wang wear the New York Yankees pinstripes?
English: Wang in bullpen 2 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
It was on July 4, 2009 and Wang went five innings, gave up two runs, struck out three, walked three and hit a batter before being removed from the game. He was posted his lowest ERA of the 2009 season, a 10.04.
Well, the Yankees just inked Wang to a minor league deal because he pitched well for Team Japan in the WBC. And he hasn’t pitched well since beginning of 2008.
Wang is supposedly back to start in Triple A Scranton, but I have a bad feeling that he might make the roster.
Knowing how the Yankees normally work, I would not be surprised if Wang was brought in to sub in for an injured Phil Hughes. The Yankees might be trying to avoid having both Ivan Nova and Andy Phelps in the starting rotation, which is completely asinine.
I would rather see Nova and Phelps over Wang any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
Personally, I do no...
