Chien-Ming Wang has been everything but good so far this season. He's singularly lost three games for the Yankees through fifteen games. So naturally the Yankees do not want to pitch him against the rival Red Sox and are going to skip his start. So if you're not doing anything for a week in the big leagues what does an MLB pitcher do? Apparently go down to Florida and throw 7 innings. Huh?
So let me get this straight. You can be on the active 25 man roster and both not be on the team but actually start games for a different team within the organization. That must have been a solid pitch. He Wang, you suck, go to Tampa and start against some little leaguers and then maybe we'll bring you back or maybe we'll just put you on the DL and bring up someone that doesn't have an ERA of 34.
The worst part of all of this nonsense is that not only did he have to go down to Tampa and pitch against scrubs, but he still managed to give up 5 runs in 7 innings. And to prove he was facing scrubs, Wang struckout 11 batters through 7. Wang has never struckout 11 batters in his 5 year career in the big leagues.
