Ranking third among American League relievers, Chad Green has been nothing short of sensational this season. The Yankee long reliever has a good head on his shoulders too, as he paces himself, focusing on one game at a time.  He has flown under the radar, but perhaps that's what makes him so special...he comes in and quietly gets it done.

According Jack Curry via the YES Network's Post Game Show last night, batters are hitting under .150 against Green as he quietly has built a very effective 1.95 ERA.  It's simple according to Chad Green, who humbly said to Meredith Marakovits after last night's 4-2 win against the New York Mets, "Try to learn. Build a routine. Take advice from my teammates. Come out aggressive."

In a season filled with ups and downs, particularly in the bull pen, it is a relief to set eyes on Green, who has 2-0 record, 74 strikeouts with over 50 innings pitched this season.  I feel a sense of consistently when he enters the game.  Perhaps he will take on a starting role sometime in the future, but for now, he has been effective in his role as a long reliever.

As the Red Sox fall to Cleveland, we gained a game back in the hunt for first place.  All smiles at the Stadium last night and hoping for continued success as Rivalry Week Continues with the Mets, the Mets and then out to Fenway for more fun with the Sox.  Buckle up folks, it is going to be a wild ride.
