Poll Results: Silva To Be Long ManPosted: May 30, 2011
Well, the results are in and according to the fans, Carlos Silva will be a long relief man with the Yankees. Silva is currently with Triple A Scranton and was very good in his last start. His opt-out clause is for some time in June so they should be able to get him a few more starts. I feel like Silva should be the long man because he has a good sinker which gets him a lot of ground balls and allows him to get out of jams. It will also allow Hector Noesi to go back down to Triple A and build his innings up. We just have to keep tabs on his next few starts and always keep in mind whether his attitude is worth it.
Make sure you vote on the new poll: What are the Yankees better off pursuing at the trade deadline?
