Well, I already left this the other day, but here we go again.


I'd like to know what you think about Joba and Hughes in the rotation at the same time ... if this is something that should be tried yet again, or if one of them should be in the bullpen (or AAA if need be) and the Yankees would pick up another good pitcher to fit into the rotation ... and in my mind that also means Pettitte coming back for 2010. 


Although Girardi did an outstanding job with 3 pitchers ... by going with 3 he pretty much showed that he didn't trust Joba or Hughes in the post-season in the rotation ... I don't think we get away with that yet again if we get there in 2010 ... so I am thinking that one of them has to take a back seat somewhere, and allow the Yankees to bring in a stronger arm for the rotation.


Would love to hear your thoughts regarding this situation.

(1) I keep hearing rumors that Felix Hernandez may be available if the Mariners cannot afford  


      him and the Red Sox have previously indicated interest (last year).


      Wouldn't he be a better option for the Yankees, than Halladay, who is older.


(2) The Yankees waited awhile for Andy P. to resign with them last year.


      What a difference he was. At times, he was their best starter, last year.


      Having that second lefty (Andy Petitte) proved huge in the playoffs for the Yankees.


      So, how soon do you tell Andy Petitte to sign?


      You have lefties out there with question marks - Erik Bedard & Aroldis Chapman.


     Whom would be a better fit if Andy declines to return?

Rumors have it Felix Hernandez may be available, if Mariners cannot afford him.


Red Sox were rumored to be interested last year.


Obviously younger than Halladay. shouldn't the Ynakees look into his availability first before pursuing Halliday?


Andy Petitte - Was huge this year. Signed late last year. At times, was their best pitcher.


                       How long do you give him to sign?


                       Andy, being a lefty was also huge in the playoffs, especially against the Phillies.


                       Which question mark  lefty would you go after Andy doesn't return?


                       Aroldis Chapman? Erik Bedard? Jaime Moyer?

Of course they're going to be starters. This debate is pointless. They have been developing as starters for the majority of their pro careers. They have high upside potential as starters. And usually these guys don't work it out in their first year. Yankee fans have the patience of a 6 year old which is infuriating. WHy do you think King Felix is so great? He's like 21 and he's pitching like a god. They will not happen every year and so they are worth a lot because they are RARE. The Yankees have to develop Joba and Hughes the hard way. Mike Francesa and others are moronoic thinking about trading either of them or putting them in the bullpen for the next Mariano.


 


No thanks I want the next Johan or CC or Doc Halladay instead of another Mariano.

How  agressive do you think the Yankees will be to add additional pitching to either the rotation  or /and  the  bullpen?


What are the chances that  Cashman  will  "break his own rules " and  give  up prospects  for  Roy Halladay ? Can we get him without  giving up Chamberlain , Hughes, Jackson and Montero ?

Are the Yankees really serious about going after Roy Halladay or are they just trying to drive up the cost for Boston ?    And if they are interested,  who would it cost to get Halladay?

 "Saving face" is an important concept in the Japanese culture. Do you think that the Yankees are taking a risk of alienating a significant source of talent by potentially "embarassing" a national icon in Matsui ?

Curtis Granderson hit 30 homeruns last season for the Tigers, and Edwin Jackson won 15 games in the rotation. With the rotation in need of an arm, and the outfield in need of a good player, why don't the Yankees look into this kind of a deal? Doc is aging and might cost too much (Joba and Hughes have dynamite futures ahead), while Lackey is getting too familiar with the disabled list. We could also let Damon walk and get a younger, and better power-hitting outfielder.

What do you make of the Yankees' interest in Mark DeRosa, and if the team did sign him, who would be the odd man out?
