Sick of Santana and Super Bowl coverage? Never fear, Yankee fans. As usual, the Journal News’ Peter Abraham is on the case, and today on his LoHud Yankees Blog, Pete’s got an interesting post about young pitchers and innings limits for this upcoming season.
Abraham directs his readers to an article by SI’s Tom Verducci in which the writer places Yanks’ prospect Ian Kennedy at the top of a list of seven pitchers who could be in for a rough ’08 given the strain their young arms have endured.
According to Verducci, Kennedy could be at risk of injury due to the 165.1 innings that he tossed last season after throwing just 104.1 innings in 2006. Of course, Abraham is quick to point out that Kennedy participated in the Hawaii Winter League following the ’06 season, and so actually threw 134.2 innings that season, putting him right on track for roughly 195 innings this upcoming season.
Nice catch, Pete. That should ease the minds of many …
Giants fans and cool cats alike are probably familiar with Carl Brutananadilewski of Aqua Teen Hunger Force fame and his various rantings and ravings. Never one to disappoint, Carl’s got a new video out, in honor of the Giants Super Bowl victory.
If you couldn’t make it out to the Canyon of Heroes today, you can still be part of this afternoon’s festivities commemorating the Super Bowl Champion Giants.
WNBC.com has the parade streaming live here.
WCBS.com has their own live stream here.
WFAN’s got a stream here, but it doesn’t seem to be working at the moment (at least not on my browser).
I will update if I find a superior stream, so stay tuned…
Today is a great day to be a New York Giants’ fan.
The team will celebrate its Super Bowl XLII championship by parading down the city’s Canyon of Heroes this morning.
After all the backslapping, hand-shaking and celebrating, though, the Giants might begin to feel the sting of what often happens to teams that win.
They find it impossible to keep the gang together.
It seems the Giants could be on the verge of losing defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who will talk to the Washington Redskins about their head coaching job some time in the next few days.
“I just wanted to let all of this (Super Bowl) stuff settle before making any decisions,” Spagnuolo said.
Losing Spagnuolo, whose passion, energy and aggressive style turned a porous defense into a dominant, championship-caliber one, would be a devastating blow to the Giants.
Giants GM Jerry Reese understands what he has in Spagnuolo.
“We’ll make every effort to keep him,” Reese said. “We sure don’t want to play against him with the Redskins because we know what …
Giants’ General Manager Jerry Reese is already talking about winning another title.
“That’s what you want to do,” Reese said. “We have a really young team. We just don’t want to go away. New England set the bar really high. The league is not built for one team to stay on the top long.”
Geez, Jerry, we love the sentiment. But, let’s enjoy this one for a while.
