Alfredo Aceves: Best in the Pen Aug. 24-30

I’ve decided to add an additional section to my weekly posts. The pitcher who is named “Best in the Pen” is the pitcher who I think had the best week in the pen (no crap). Somehow it hit me that every reliever has their good weeks and their bad weeks, so I felt it would be a nice little update to have going into the next week.

The stats used will always be grabbed from Monday through Sunday, and the post will always be here on Mondays at 10 a.m. (As will the Featured Yankee card of the Week at 8:30 a.m., and the weekly poll at 9 a.m.) Also, for all intensive purposes, I will be excluding the great Mariano Rivera from this honor, as he is not human and would probably deserve this honor each week.

Finally, onto this week’s choice. Alfredo Aceves appeared in two games and didn’t allow a run. He only gave up two measly singles in yesterday’s three innings of relief for Joba Chamberlain against the White Sox. He also pitched a 1-2-3 ninth against Texas on Thursday.

Note: I will keep a box on the left column devoted to the Best in the Pen. The picture will link back to the weekly post.
