Red face Tanyon Sturtze To The Yankees?

http://www.lasvegassun.com/sunbin/st...516849642.html

Quote:
Before Wednesday's game at Cashman Field, Las Vegas 51s pitcher Tanyon Sturtze seemed frustrated with his situation and with being stuck in the minor leagues.

But Sturtze's frustration might have ended after a 7-2 Las Vegas win, when he was told to pack his bags amid rumors he was being traded to the Yankees.

The Sun could not confirm by press time whether a deal had been completed. Despite being told to pack his belongings, Sturtze said he had not received official word of a deal to New York, and 51s pitching coach Roger McDowell said Sturtze would be the starter in tonight's game against the New Orleans Zephyrs.

But the scene in the clubhouse after the game made it clear that something was up. As teammates shook hands and congratulated Sturtze, one 51s teammate shouted, "We're getting Bubba (Crosby) back!" and another said "No, we're getting (Scott) Proctor!" referring to two Las Vegas 51s traded last season in a deal involving Yankees infielder Robin Ventura.

51s manager Terry Kennedy confirmed that the Yankees had scouted Sturtze during last weekend's series in Sacramento. Sturtze, 33, is 3-0 with a 2.50 ERA in six starts.
Why?

I've been going to games since August 8, 1973....and on August 22, 2004, finally, a foul ball came my way. I had to reach for it, and it deflected off the tip of my right index finger. Shoot, if I was only 4 inches taller!

I guess since Kevin Jarvis is no longer available..............

Gosh, this makes no sense. As a Yankee fan, I hope they see something that I'm missing here..........

Rumor has it that the Yankees are also trying to acquire Micah Bowie...

Hey, everybody needs a mop-up man....

Actually, Sturtze is as good as several pitchers currently in rotations around the majors.

Actually, I did some sorts on the SBE today on him.
For guys his age or older, over the last three years, he's been one of the worst pitchers in the AL (his league).

He's Jeff Juden like.

It's a done deal.

Sturtze to the Yankees for a player to be named later.

There was this guy named Ruffing, had lost 20 games two years running and had an ERA lower than league average once in a five-year career when he was traded to the Yankees. He turned out all right, I hear.

Ruffing, before the Yankees acquired him: -54 RSAA
Sturtze, with his career IP prorated out to Ruffing's figure: -79 RSAA

And the only reason why we ever heard of Ruffing was because he was a historical outlier. Once you have to resort to outliers, especially when it's the beginning of making a case, that's a case of a losing argument.
