Scott Proctor's abused arm has pitched more innings than any relief pitcher in baseball. To this day, he has thrown 89 of them. He has been very effective. Yet, Torre still decides to waste what few bullets he has remaining by pitching him meaningless innings.

The Yankees had the game won in the 8th inning tonight. With an 8 run lead, wouldn't Jose Veras, Brian Bruney, T.J. Beam, or Octavio Dotel be better options? I surely would love to see Bruney get some more innings under his belt, so a decision can be made about his playoff role. I would certainly love to see T.J. Beam get some confidence. But no. We saw Proctor. Again.
