THINK WE HAVE A SOLID STARTING ROTATION? THINK AGAIN
This a a short portion of a very good piece by George King III from the New York Post. In a nutshell, the story talks about how Brian Cashman just couldn't find the right deal during the Winter Meetings. But don't worry, Cashman was quoted as saying "...There is a long way between now and Opening Day. I will keep conversations alive.’’
Oh goodie Brian. I can't wait.
But to my BYB audience. It's back to that short portion from King's piece that will sum up the Yankees starting rotation. When I read them, I became annoyed... then angry. Here it goes:
"CC Sabathia’s right knee is a huge concern. Ditto Masahiro Tanaka’s right elbow. It could be June before Ivan Nova returns from Tommy John surgery, and even if that’s the case, he will still be Nova, a hurler prone to inconsistency.
Cashman has been in contact with Hiroki Kuroda’s agent, but the right-hander isn’t a lock to return. David Phelps and Adam Warren have been told they will be worked as starters during spring training. Bryan Mitchell is in the mix..."
Geez, dude. How do you like our chances now?
Pretty damn slim.
