BA had been pitching OK for the Yankees' AA Trenton Thunder after extended spring training, yielding seven hits and one earned run over his first 7 2/3 innings, striking out nine and walking one. Unfortunately for him, though, he was placed on the disabled list a week ago with 'general arm soreness'.

This is not a good sign for a 29 year old converted pitcher with so few innings under his belt.

I know he is a rather polarizing figure around here, but I had a chance to meet Brian back in 06 and he was one of the nicest professional athletes I've ever met. I wish him nothing but the best and it'd be awesome to see him in the majors again.

You must have caught him between one of his meals of puppies and babies.

Like the White Sox, Red Sox, and Royals, the Yankees obviously failed to realize how great a talent Brian Anderson is. It's all Ozzie's fault.

Maybe it was just between nights of boozing and picking up drunken groupies while staying out until 5 AM...

It's not like he pitched poorly before the injury. Maybe they feel he won't recover well?

If he had just started Game 2 of the 2006 season- everything would have been different.

Whatever else happens with his baseball career, he will always have his 2005 World Series ring.

I'd laugh but I liked Brian. And, ****, he'd be hitting better than some of the jokers in our lineup right now.

Sorry to see that, truly. I liked the kid's heart when he played. What he did away from the field was ridiculous; but that was his choice.

What's that? Almost getting goaded into a fight with Jr. and then getting thrown under the bus by Daddy?

OK, so obviously the White Sox, Red Sox, Royals, and Yankees are all just clueless to his greatness and he'll rebound once he finds an organization that recognizes his talent.

He will...and I'm sure that he will flourish and at long last meet his expectations - perhaps exceed them - under the watchful eye and sagely tutelage of the night manager at Home Depot.

Except for the part about being able to hit a breaking ball.

No, chasing tail and boozing it up when he wasn't established as a star. Teams will look the other way if you're an established performer. When you still are proving yourself to the team and you're more focused on the party?

The party is all you're going to have.

The best part about this comment is that it actually was at about 2am at a bar in Lakeview that I met him. Nice guy though.
