1. Masahiro Tanaka

2. Luis Severino

3. CC Sabathia

4. Sonny Gray

5. Jordan Mongomery

or do we sign someone else or let Chance Adams or Justus Shefield get a shot?

That's  a good  starting  lineup. Adams or Shefield will be called up when there is an injury. Neither are better than the starting  5.


That being said, maybe one of them nudges out Montgomery  in ST. No need to dwell on the rotation , this team is going to  score a ton  of  runs for them.

Pitching and deffense wins championships. I am pretty sure barring an Injury year like we had in 2012 that this team is playoff bound.

Personally, I would've liked to see Jaime Garcia brought back if the price was right. Would've liked to see what he could do over a full season with the Yankees.

NO, th-



ats our starting rotation. If a "no-brainer" comes up, then I'm sure Cashman will strike. LOL...I might regret using that term "no-brainer" because for some people the stupid choice is a "no-brainer."


Dude, you already have three ACES in that rotation. If any of them happen to struggle, I'm sure Cashman will go out and make a deal.

Well, that's certainly the expectation. 


This starting rotation and the bullpen, should (my estimation) compile a team ERA of 3.40.  I am expecting Severino to do this season, what he did last. I expect Tanaka to have a great regular season, based on his 2016 regular season and his 2017 post season performances. As for Gray, I expect him to be the Ace pitcher that he was with Oakland.  As for CC, I expect him to formally be the new Andy Pettitte. As for Montgomery, I just expect him to improve. 


Our starting staff has only one task and that's to take the game into the 6th inning. 


If our starting rotation is not performing to their capabilities, then I am confident Cashman will spring into action. Hopefully that won't happen right away (lol).

That's a solid 5. Tanaka and Severino at their best are top pitchers. CC if healthy is a solid middle of the rotation guy. Gray seems like he can be a solid 3 or 4 and Montgomery has lots of potential. The Yankees could do much worse.

I know the objective is to break up the lefty starters but CC shouldn't be the 3rd starter. I like the Tanaka, Severino, Gray, Monty, CC rotation better. It would give the Yankees a chance rest CC especially at the start of the season.


That rotation is good for the time being until Adams and or Sheffield are ready. It doesn't look like the Yankees will sign a starter unless they rid themselves of El's contract.

Pretty sure Gray will be the 3rd starter.

I should be that way but I'm betting Boone will want to split the left handers up... You would also think maybe CC should be the #5 starter instead of Mongomery ?? Still could add another pitcher ????? Personally think Severino might be #1 and Tanaka #2, just my two cents..
