On August 30th I wrote an apology to Sergio Mitre after his brilliant performance against the Chicago Whitesox. Now....I wish I could take that post back put it into a fire and burn it down. I am appauled at myself that I would trust such a bad pitcher after only one start. I apologize to my readers. Mitre is currently battling for a post-season roster spot with Chad Gaudin (who I hope will win) and is probably losing. He threw 4.1 IP giving up 11 hits and 11 runs (9 earned) against the Toronto Blue Jays today. His ERA is up to 7.02 and his WHIP is at 1.76. I say DFA Mitre now to activate someone like Jason Hirsh (who did leave his AAA start after 0.1 IP...possibly due to injury, however) or Zach Kroenke.
No matter what the Yankees do....they cannot afford to give a valuable roster spot in the playoffs to such a horrible pitcher.
