I've watched your post for a year+ now. You have an obscure bias against Severino and won't ever give him credit.
Including this one posted less than a week ago?
Dr. Detfink wrote:A great 2 hitter for Severino and the pen. Indians struck first in every game but the Yankees were able to rally 2 and split the series. Small but very important strategic move, putting Jacobi Ellsbury #7 in the order. He still takes pitches. He is no longer #2 batter but he's serviceable in other ways. See, it's the bottom of the order which makes the difference in these kind of games. That's why balancing out the lineup is so important.
If you want, I can dig up more (and waste my time before I punch into work tonight) but I'm BETTING I've said more positive things about Severino than you have about Tanaka
, a pitcher who has at least 3 prior years of solid pitching
under his belt vs a pitcher who is having his FIRST good season
and will finish possibly with 12-14 wins.
