David Phelps RHP

Also scheduled to pitch: Matt Thornton, Brian Gordon, Chris Leroux, Chase Whitley.


The Whitley experiment is over I hope. The guy is useless. Now he gives up 2 runs and the Yankees are behind 3-2. He wasn’t any good last year either in spring training. Why do they trot poor pitchers out from the minors in spring training? I don’t mind guys who can pitch and who have pitched well in the minors. But not a guy like Whitley.


can anyone tell me why they continue to send Whitley out to the mound. The guy gave up 5 runs in his last outing. He was bad last year. It’s time to give up on the guy. He just can’t pitch. How many chances do they give a prospect who can’t pitch?
