Now we can rock out with out Wang out through the 2011 season.The New York Yankees announced today that they have signed right-handed pitcher Chien-Ming Wang to a one-year contract for $5 million, avoiding arbitration.Wang, 28, was 8-2 with a 4.07 ERA in 15 starts for the Yankees in 2008 before being placed on the disabled list on June 17 for the remainder of the season with a mid-foot sprain of the Lisfranc ligament and a partial tear of the peroneal longus tendon in his right foot. He began the season 6-0, including a 5-0 mark in April, and was the Yankees' Opening Day starter in the final season opener at Yankee Stadium on April 1, defeating Toronto, 3-2.
Despite missing most of the 2008 season, Wang's 46 wins since 2006 are tied for the third-most in the American League and eighth-most in the Majors. His .754 combined winning percentage over the last three seasons (2006-08) is the second-highest in the Majors behind Boston's Jon Lester (.771, 27-8). He recorded back-to-back seasons with 19 wins in 2006 and 2007, becoming the first Yankee to win as many games in each of two consecutive seasons since Tommy John in 1979-80.
On April 22, 2008, in his 85th career start, Wang became the third-fastest Major League pitcher in the last 50 years to reach 50 career wins behind Dwight Gooden (82nd start) and the Yankees' Ron Guidry (82nd start), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
Signed by the Yankees as a non-drafted free agent on May 5, 2000, Wang has won more games than any Taiwanese-born pitcher and ranks third all-time in wins by Asian-born pitchers behind Japan's Hideo Nomo (123) and South Korea's Chan Ho Park (117).

IN EXCHANGE FOR INF WILSON BETEMIT AND TWO MINOR LEAGUE PITCHERS
THEY GOT HIM FOR ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!
Update by Nate: The two minor league pitchers are Jeff Marquez and Johnny Nunez. Marquez was once a solid prospect but his numbers have decreased significantly recently, and is now not much of a prospect. Johnny Nunez put up decent numbers after being acquired for the Nationals for Alberto Gonzalez, but he is a relief pitcher, and doesn't profile as a closer, so he's really a spare part. Betemit has shown potential, but has not produced very much and should be replaceable.

1st Inning: Melky grounded to short. Cano realized he has to take more pitches, as he took strike three. Abreu flies to center. WE: 40.9 Wang strikes out David Ortiz to end the inning. 1-2-3. WE: 44.7
Thursday, April 10, 2008
Nate here now. I'll be doing the liveblog tonight. Please if your reading this give us your input in the comments section.
A bit of an odd lineup today. Good to see Jorge back, although not at catcher. He played long toss today, and Derek Jeter should return relatively soon.
1st inning: Yanks go 1-2-3, making John Bale look like the great pitcher that he is. WE: 40.9.
Rough inning for Pettitte, hopefully he'll turn it around. Morgan Ensberg showed us the value of defense at first. WE: 35.4
2nd inning: The Yankees managed to baserunners, but Morgan Ensberg showed off his superior batting eye by taking called strike three. I'm really starting to get annoyed at this offense. WE: 30.6 Tony Pena Jr. is now 0 for his last 21. He would fit right in with the Yankees. Oh, wait, he plays good defense. Nice inning for Pettitte, though. WE: 34.8
3rd inning: Hey, a run! Melky hit a homer to left-center, despite not putting a great swing on the ball. A-Rod followed by not hitting a homerun, and instead grounding to third. WE: 41.8 In the bottom of the inning Pettitte got in trouble again, but got a DP ball to end it. WE: 47.8- It keeps on climbing.
4th inning: Two straight hits to start the inning. Is that allowed? Molina grounds into a DP, but Posada scores from third. 2-1 Yankees. Cano pops up the first pitch. WE: 54.6- damn right. The tarp is now on the field, despite no rain. Ken Singleton mentioned that there is a thunderstorm watch in the area. I guess that means Pettitte is done, which sucks, because the bullpen had to pitch five last night, and will likely pitch more tonight. Can you say Joba for two? WE: 55.1
(this is now Charlie)
OK now the tarp is off it seems the game is starting. Horrah.
4th inning part 2: It seems Pettitte will continue pitching since he is on the mound after the deley and he comes back in with a runner on first and one out. Pettitte picks off Alex Gordon who was on first two down. Gload grounds out to Cano to end the inning. WE: 67.6%
Fifth Inning: Morgan Ensberg leads off the fifth with a nice single up the middle. Gonzalez sac bunts to move Ensburg into scoring position and there is now one out. Damon gets an infield single to to the shortstop and their are now runners on first and third one out. If we don't get a run here I will chase Melky all the way back to Santo Domingo. The Melkman delivers (fuck you John Sterling) and the Yanks lead 3-1. In the meantime, Hideo Nomo's ghost is warming in the bulllpen. Yanks get another run on a force at second. By the way this is Nate again. WE: 59.8 Another quick inning for Pettitte. He's cruising. WE: 85.6
Sixth Inning: Some bad news: Alan Horne left today's game in SWB due to a biceps injury. At least we still have Kei Igawa. Yankees strand a runner on third. WE: 83.6 Esteban German leads of the bottom of the sixth with a screaming line drive right at Pettitte, who snags it. Pettitte=Cat. 1-2-3 again- Vintage Andy. WE: 90.2%
Seventh Inning: Remember what you are doing right now, Hideo Nomo has made his triumphant return. He starts by giving up a hit to AG on the first pitch. Johnny Damon tried to completely ruin this inning, but only kind of ruined it, by beating out a DP ball. Hideo Nomo has cool sideburns. There I said it. Melky advances the runner on a crappy grounder. JOBA!! is warming up in the bullpen. Joba and Nomo in the same game, does it get any better? Nomo walks A-Rod. He walks Posada too, and now the entire continent of Asia watches as Nomo faces Matsui. Godzilla vs. The Tornado- coming soon to a theater near you. The Tornado wins. His sideburns were just too much, as Matsui pops out, bringing much dishonor to his household. WE: 83.8 Pettitte comes back out, and gives up a leadoff hit to Billy Butler. I would guess if he gets in trouble Joba will come in. Andy gets a comebacker on a check swing from Alex Gordon, and gets the out at second, but AG's throw pulled Ensberg off the bag. Pettitte gets Gload to fly to center, and then exits. I'm assuming its Joba time. Joba gets John Buck to fly to center to end the inning. WE: 93.8
Eighth Inning: Yanks go fairly quietly, stranding one. WE: 96.2. Tony Pena Jr. leads off with a hard liner that Cano boots. AG gets the force at second on Gathright grounder. Joba K's German, making him look stupid. Teahan singles on a hit and run. First and third, 2 out. Joba whiffs Guillen on a 99 MPH heater. WE: 97.1
Ninth Inning: Two outs, then A-Rod goes A-Gone, tying Bobby Murcer on the Yankees home run list. Jorge follows up with a homer of his own. Finally some offense. Nomo gets Matsui again. WE: 96.5 Not a save situation, but Mo is in anyway. A-Rod makes a nice play to get Butler. He's a good baseball player. Gordon pops up to AG. 1 out away. Gload singles, so now we have to keep hearing about that annoying hitting streak. Miguel Olivo in for John Buck. Damon makes the catch a few feet in front of the track to improve to 5-5.

Tonight I am going to take a crack at live blogging the game. The Yanks are trying take two of four from the Rays and in the process win their second straight. On the mound for the Yankees is Mike Mussina, coming off his first shaky start. Whether we like it or not Moose is an important key to the Yankees success this season. It is strange that both games that the Moose is starting Molina is catching. The game will be shown on ESPN 2 and YES. Here are the lineups from Pete Abe.
First Inning: After a dominant first inning setting the Rays down one-two three in a impressive first inning Moose only hurled 8 pitches. WE: 59.1%
The second half of the first inning starts off with a Damon single. Then Jeter grounds into a would be double play but beats it out. "EL COMEDULCE" hits a 2 run shot. A-Rod and Godzilla both ground out to end the inning. Yankees 2. Rays 0. WE: 73.1%
Second Inning: Again the Moose sets em down one two three again throwing only 19 pitches total in the game. Not much else to say. WE: 77.1%
Cano grounded out, Betemit struck out and Melky flied out to make it a 1-2-3 inning for the Rays WE: 73.1%
DEREK JETER WAS TAKEN OUT OF THE GAME AND BETEMIT WAS MOVED TO SHORT.......SHIT PUTTING ENSBURG AT FIRST. SHIT.
Third Inning: The inning starts off with Jonny Gomes hitting a solo home run to make the game 2-1 Yankees. Mussina left the pitch up over the plate and the ruffian crushed it. Next there was a ground out and then a walk. Finally Iwamura and Crawford ground out to end the inning leaving a runner stranded at third. WE: 70.2%
This half inning begins with a double by the sneaky Jose Molina. Damon grounds out. EL COMEDULCE hits a ball "lined like a bullet" into center moving the slugglish Molina over to third bringing A-Rod up with two outs. He grounds out to third ending the inning with two runners stranded. The Yankees are looking pretty good right now and as long Moose can hold up the bombers will be fine. WE: 65.4%
Fourth Inning: Moose gets three quick ground outs only throwing six pitches to end the inning and bring the Bombers up to the plates. WE: 72.5%Starting the inning Matsui grounds out. Then Cano gets "robbed" by the majestic fairy in right Eric Hinske. Finally Betemit grounds out to end the inning. Yankees 2 Rays 1 WE: 67.6%
Fifth Inning: Moose Ks Aybar to start the 5th giving him an impressive total of 2 strike outs. Next batter Moose Ks the Ruffian Jonny Gomes to tie David Cone on the all time strikeout list and giving him his third strikeout of the game. DiFelice hits a two out double to keep the inning alive getting his first career hit off of Mussina. Bartlett flies out to end the inning. Moose has a total of 64 pitches and unlike the last game he is not locating his fastball well. WE: 74.4%
The Melk Man grounds out to short to start the bottom of the fifth. The Yankees should be hitting Hammel harder and it seems their bats are still alseep as they have been all season. Molina hits a slow roller back to the pitcher for the second out. Damon hits a blooper over the head of the shortstop for his second hit of the night bringing up Morgan "Clutch" Ensberg. A nice play by Ayebar ends the inning. CAN WE GET SOME RUNS. Yankees 2. Rays 1 WE:69%
Sixth Inning- This is a big inning for Moose if he can get threw this inning with a good pitch count he can pitch the 7th too and then hand the 8th to Joba. Aki grounded into a soft grounder to the Moose one out. Crawford grounds out to Ensberg. Now lets hope Carlos does not bring the Pena. Michael Kay just called the Pena shift the "Martini glass defense " does he have to make everything gay? After that Flaherty shut him down saying "Not one person in baseball calls that defense that" Kay however disagreed. Cano makes a throwing error on an easy ground ball and Morgan, who is not a cat like Giambi, could not handle that throw. Runner on first B.J. Upton digs in and grounds out to A-Rod. Now can we please produce some runs. WE: 77.1%
Bottom Six. "Bobby Abreu is as sweet as candy" (sorry hits a triple off of the right-center wall past the glove of the fairy Hinske and is now a double away with a cycle. If we don't get this run in I might cry. A-Rod hits a bloop single over Aki's head to drive in the run and make the game a 3-1 contest. Godzilla hits an RBI double driving in A-Rod making this game 4-1 in the Yankees favor. Cano grounds out and moves the Matsui to third with one out. Betemit stuck out swinging. Melky is walked intensionally. Molina ends the inning with a ground out. Finally some runs. Yankees 4. Rays 1. WE: 91.6%Seventh Inning: Big Boy Bruney comes into the game mullet and all. Is it just me or do all pitches have some sort of chain around thier neck...their leader? Jeff Weaver of course. Oh yea live blogging the leadoff hitter hits a long fly ball to right that is caught. Bruney releases his anger on Aybar plunking him in the arm with a 94mph fastball. That was the first base runner Bruney has allowed on all year. The Ruffian Johnny Gomes flies out to center now two outs. The inning is ended by a groundout to Betemit. WE: 95.7% (I like)
TIME TO STRETCH AND TAKE A WIZ.............
(Sorry about the grey text blogger is a little screwy)Around the Leauge Scores:
FLA:7 WSH 6
ATL 1 COL 0
Bottom Seven. Dohmann comes in for the Rays and Damon leads off the inning. UPDATE JETER HAS A STRAINED LEFT QUAD......SHIT. Damon flies out to Crawford. Ensberg gets his fisrt hit as a Yankee with a ground ball up the middle for a single. Bobby walks. Runners on first and second one out. A-Rod strikes out looking on a pitch he thought to be a ball. The replay shows that indeed it was a ball but it was close to the zone. Two down. Godzilla hits an RBI single by Aki driving in Ensberg. 5-1 Yankees. Crap, Farnsworth is warming up. RBI single for Robbie Cano don't ya know...God I need to stop.....6-1 Yankees. Runners on 1st and 3rd now 2 outs. To end the rally Betemit strikes out going 0-4 so far in the game. Their is only one man who can blow this lead and his name.......Kyle. WE: 98.8%
Eighth Inning: Fucking Farnsworth is and and starts off the inning by getting a quick fly out for one out. The Farns strikes out Aki two down. So far in game their have only been two baserunners. The Farns gets a weak ground ball back to him to end the inning. WE: 99.7%
Bottom 8th. Cabrera steps up to the plate against the new Rays pitcher Glover and he grounds out to Pena. Molina strikes out swinging to record the second out of the inning. Damon then grounds out to second and it seems LaTroy is going to come in and work the 9th. WE: 99.7
LaTroy is coming in bearing a 31.50 era and he will get to face the heart of the order of the Rays. Pena squares to bunt which befuddles me. Pena knocks a lead off single and the crowd assaults Hawkins with a cloud of boos. He has not had the best welcome here in New York. He was booed even before throwing a pitch just for wearing #21. Hawkins throws a wild pitch and Pena advances to second. Hawkins makes a jumping play to stop a ground ball and gets the out at first. One out man on second the Majestic Hinske at the plate who walks. Aybar grounds out and moves the runners over. Two outs second and third the Ruffian Jonny Gomes steps up to take a crack at LaTroy he strikes out swinging and LaTroy manages to get out of it.
Thats all for me folks. Time for some NCAA Mens Basketball. Word to your mother.....
YANKEES WIN 6-1 AMEN
Here is the new Joba addias commercial that is airing on Yes
Monday, March 24, 2008
Beautiful words from the Yankees front office. The greatest sports team in the world has exceeded 3.8 million tickets sold for the '08 season and they are the earliest club to do so, the current tally is 400,000 tickets ahead of the Yankees’ total on the same date last year.
“Even with historic advance sales, tickets remain available for most games,” said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. “I encourage fans to join us at Yankee Stadium throughout 2008 to celebrate the 84th and final season of Baseball at The House That Ruth Built.”
Looks the Yankees won't have any trouble funding the new stadium
(Sorry about the shortage of posts.....Spring Training isn't very eventful and we have been busy)
