Chen Debut 4/10/12 vs Yankees

Chen Debut 4/10/12 vs Yankees

Started off rough giving up a HR and a double but has settled down. Back to back strikeouts to end the top half of the 2nd.

Hardy with a HR and the offense is actually working an opposing starter for once. Wieters with another hit.

3 up 3 down again and that's 8 in a row. Chen looks great these last 2 innings.

Nice 3rd inning. Chen is reminding me of Matusz when Matusz was pitching well

11 in a row now for Chen and he has 5 strikeouts.

The only negative since the first is all these fly ball outs. I'd like to see some ground outs but hey an out is an out.

I missed the first inning but he looks pretty good as a guy who knows how to pitch without great stuff.

I think he was just nervous in the first. Gave up a lead off HR and then a double off the wall and then hit A-Rod two batters later. He has looked like a different person since the 1st.

Not often you see the Yanks play bad ball like that. Nice to take advantage of it.

I love me some small ball. Perfect bunt by Chavez, almost beat it out.

Great bunt. A lot of Chavez's value is in executing plays like that and that was perfect. Then wasted by Hardy. Cant have everything
