Tanaka is a guy who I think could be underrated going into this coming draft season. Did you see what he did in the second half? Masahiro Tanaka’s 2nd half splits: 10.7 K/9, 1.65 Bb/9, 3.77 ERA, .229

Ok 35th in my league.   That's above the meh-ndoza line.   Yup, its a thing. Now. ?

Anybody know when his next start is going to be?  ESPN doesn't have him listed as starting this week.  Hurts during championship week if that is true.

Wednesday or Thursday

Isn’t Severino slated for the Sunday start? I know the Yanks stated that Tanaka and Severino were being considered for the WC game but I just don’t see how Severino could be ran out there with any confidence considering his play of late. Look at what the A’s did to him the last time they played. Yikes! Imo they go with Happ in the WC game.

yes, and he will probably pitch 3 innings max.   Happ should go game 1 in Boston, so he can go 1 and 5.     He is their best pitcher in Fenway

 

I'm a yankee fan and I'd feel comfy with Sevy or Tanaka, at home, vs Oaktown.   Severino is 10-2  2.74 at home.   He will start the WC game.  he should, anyway

They have to win the WC game to get game 1 and 5 in Boston.

YES Network says he is tabbed for Sunday start. And I will now be moving on.

lol.    He could pitch 1 inning.    Boone already said that earlier this week.  It would be his throw day.

He was supposed to pitch Tuesday and Sunday this week, but then the Yankees decided to do a bullpen game Monday.  That meant Tanaka pitched Wednesday and will not pitch Sunday.  Yankees should have HFA locked before then.

Tanaka had a great July, a bad August, and is having a great September. The overall picture of his true second half (July-Aug-Sept) has been very good. He has been much more than "meh" (which I stated he was, lol) in the second half. Kudos to Tanaka and all those who held onto him. Your patience was rewarded. He will finish with a solid overall ERA and a very good WHIP.

he was talking about Severino.     I doubt Sevy goes Sunday, if so just one inning.   He will start the WC game.   Pretty certain
