Congratulations to Dan Giese

Dan Giese recorded his first career victory this afternoon, pitching a stellar 2 2/3 innings while striking out three batters.

In 6 1/3 innings with the Yankees, he has given up five hits and one earned run. He got the loss his first time out, but had a nice outing overall. Today he was rewarded for his good performance.

I was extremely quick to call him "awful" during his first appearance, and I'd like to retract that statement once again. If he can keep turning in performances like he has been thus far, this will be quite a find for the Yankees.

It's nice to have a legitimate long reliever for once. Hopefully this will push Ross Ohlendorf into a more defined role in the back end of the bullpen.
