YANKEE REPORT CARDS: PITCHERS
Farnsworth: C. His wildness and knack for giving up the long ball makes me nervous.
Johnson: D. He has to be the worst 17 game winner I ever saw. The injuries, wildness, HR's and worst of all, the excuses. I'm tired of this guy. It's time to retire. Will he pass up the 16 mil? Highly doubtful.
Lidle: D. Was not impressive after his Yank debut.
Mussina: C. Have you ever noticed how Muss can't pitch with a lead? Add in the groin and elbow...throw in blowing the lead against Detroit, a very mediocre season.
Myers: C. Showed he's a 50/50 chance at best when called on for 1 batter. A 1 batter pitcher is a waste of a roster spot that could be filled by a youngster.
Proctor: B. His over use was his down fall. I still believe that he could be the successor to Mo.
Rivera: A. Need I say more?
Villone: C. Had a great stretch in the middle 3rd of the season. Before and after he stunk. Over use could have played a factor into his late season flops.
Wang: A. Without him, Yanks are nowhere. Cy candidate and 2007 opening day starter. He's the Ace.
Wright: F. Returned to his scrub form from his Cleveland days.
Honorable mentions to Bruney, Dotel, Karstens, Sturtze and Beam.
"Thanks for nothing" to Pavano and Chacon.
Next Report Card: Catchers.
