I'm not. He's done extremely well since he got called up, and may be the key to not just getting into the playoffs this year, but over the next few years as well. I'm just wondering why he never got a chance with the stuff he had. He had a couple of bad outings over the years and teams gave up on him. It seems like he's showing what he could do now that he's actually had a chance. He is showing that he has some pretty wicked stuff.

Have you been watching Small at all? The thing that makes his performance so amazing is that his stuff isn't that great. Guys like A.J Burnett and Dontrelle Willis and Barry Zito have great stuff... but a lot of times don't now how to use it.

The thing that makes Aaron Small so great is he doesn't try to blow pitches by hitters or strike them out. He paints the corners with excellent precision and lets them put the ball in play and lets the defense make plays and it works.

I think he even said something once like "I know I don't have the best stuff so I'm just going to do what I do best... let them put the ball in play."


Anyways he'll be a huge component of the bullpen in the playoffs if Tom Gordon gets the "October willies" again.

A pitcher that knows that he doesn't have great stuff, yet does very well in spite of it, is a very dangerous pitcher. His stuff looks hittable from watching it on television. However, it seems at the last moment the pitch moves enough so a batter pops out or hits a weak grounder on contact. Now trhat is some nasty stuff.

Well, the only good thing is that this probably means Small will go on the DL soon. A Yankee ptcher cant be successful this year without going on the DL.

You have no clue what you're talking about.

Jaret Wright never....oh wait, well what about Carl Pavano....not the best example, but you see Wang never, umm alright well Kevin Brown never got hurt.
