Crank the hype machine

Uh oh, the hype machine's gonna be working overtime today as Alfredo Aceves debuted last night, going 7 innings against the Angels for the win. The story on this kid is pretty neat, making it from A ball to last night's win, all this year. He's not as young as many other prospects at age 25, but he's really blossomed this year.

"He told me he was going to give me seven [innings], so I guess I have to listen to him more often," Girardi said. "He faced a tough lineup tonight but he threw a lot of strikes, he was ahead in the count all day and he was putting the ball where he wanted to."
Let's wait to annoint him, though. Remember where Kennedy was last September...?
