Chesbro to Bruney: I totally feelya, dude.

Brian Bruney, who’ll rejoin the Yankees tonight after a stay on the disabled list, thinks he knows how he got hurt: he warmed up 8テつス minutes too long on April 19.

Happy Jack Chesbro threw 48 complete games in one season. He sends get well wishes to the Yankees' Brian Bruney.

The relief pitcher was loosening in the bullpen while umpires consulted a video replay confirming Jorge Posada’s home run. The consultation clocked in at 8:30, during which time Bruney kept throwing.

“I mean, that’s a long time for a reliever to be throwing or any pitcher to be throwing,” Bruney said. “Major League Baseball needs a way to figure out if it’s a home run or not. It shouldn’t take 8テつス minutes, and I think that’s what screwed me up.”

In 1904, Yankee great Jack Chesbro threw 454 2/3 innings and won 41 games, both of which are Yankee records. Bugs&Cranks consulted Chesbro for his reaction to Bruney’s 8テつス-minute claim.

“Oh, absolutely,” Chesbro told B&C. “Are you kidding? Throwing for 8テつス minutes? Cripes, the kid’s lucky to be alive.

“Y’know, I think that 454-inning season took something out of me,” he continued. “I threw 48 complete games that year and could only go 303 innings the next year. And 325 the year after that. Really, I was never the same. That’s why I really feel for Bruney. Jeezus, can you imagine? His arm must be killing him. Poor guy. Coming back from an 8テつス-minute bullpen session won’t be easy. But it’s that kind of toughness that makes him a Yankee.”

    Jack Chesbro’s shirt is made out of bull scrotum. Brian Bruney should not speak to people armed with pencils and paper.

    Very nice, Patrick.

    I guess it’s a good thing Gardner and Jeter got the last 2 outs to end the inning. I can only imagine the damage that would have been done had those bastards extended his bullpen session even more by not getting out.

    Guess since he’s given up beer for water, he’s been a tad grumpy. I’ll at least give him credit for the sacrifice. Or maybe he picked up the habit from moose….
