After a mediocre start against a mediocre team, Chen-Ming Wang is on the ropes. Phil Hughes deserves a starting spot, and the Yankees don’t seem like they are ever going to put Joba back into the pen. This leaves Wang as the odd man out.
The Braves’ offense is much better than the Nationals. Granted, it is not an elite offense, but the Braves are not slouches either.
If Wang wants to keep his job, he will come out with his best stuff tonight. If he doesn’t, he could end up in the shish kabob known as the Yankees bullpen.
