Subject: SOS - we need help

Dearest CC,

I'm sure you've heard by now about our latest fallen soldier, our ace of cakes Chien Ming Wangster. The basepaths proved too much to handle - I'm sure you have have experienced the hardship of having to turn corners during your limited interleague play. Word has come from the Powers That Be that the Wangster's foot is in bad shape, and while he won't have to undergo surgery, he'll be taking an extended vacation at the DL Resort and Casino - at least 6 weeks, to be exact.

CC, this puts the Yanks in a bad spot. Surely you have taken notice of the starting pitching problems the team has had even with Wang in the rotation, what with Hughsie and I-Ken taking a serious dive and Pettitte getting off to a slow start. Moose has stepped up to the plate and Rasner has been effective; Jobastartamania has thankfully worked out well thus far but that still leaves us with a few cross-your-fingers-and-hope games every week. With Wang out now, I have a sinking feeling we'll be seeing Kei Igawa back in pinstripes at any time now, and that can't be good for anybody. Who else is there, after all? I suppose there's Dan Geise or maybe Ohledork, but they are not seasoned starters.

YC good pal Peter Abraham made a good point, reminding us that with the way the Yanks' schedule works out, if Wang comes back in precisely six weeks there will only be 5 games for which we need to fill his spot in the rotation. That's good news, but 5 games is 5 games, and like I said, the Yanks have been having trouble with their starters even when Wang's foot was functioning at full capacity. This is where you come in.

I'd like to see how you would feel about making a move to the Bronx and busting out some pinstripe garb. Let's be honest here: your team is 4 games under .500 and 5.5 games out of first place in the division... you most likely won't be playing baseball in October with the Indians, but you might have a shot if you join Girardi and the gang. I have no doubt that you could make a huge impact on the Yanks' season, even though you've had a semi-slow start. You'll have a winning record in no time, and I'd love to see you do that with the Yanks.

Cash, Steinbrothers, and Girardino, please take note. The season lies in your hands.

Love,

Maureen/The Yankees Chick

    Very creative post! Just remember that if you want CC, you need to coax Mark Shapiro more than anyone else :)

    Yankees Chick,

    Most of your posts are insightful and knowledgeable. However, I can't understand why you want CC SoFAThia to join the Yanks. He's a 290 lb. pitcher, who averages about 14-15 wins per year. Considering he's already picked up a whopping 5 wins this year, he probably only has 10 wins left in him, and that's with a "decent" Yankee team behind him. His postseason experience is extremely limited (yeah, I'm still hoping there is a postseason), and he's scheduled to pick up $11,000,000. Do the Yanks really need to do that?

    You're a great gal Yankees Chick and you're definitely the best when it comes to creativity in Yankee blogging. With that in mind, you can't be serious. Yes, CC is a great pitcher no doubt. But his lack of consistency coupled with his inability to win big games really scares me off, proving even more why he would never work in NY. Just imagine the dead weight (pun intended)that is CC pitching in NY, walking the ballpark against the Red Sox or the Rays, in a pivotal game in September. Also, keep in mind the # of blue chips this guy is going to cost. 95% of time, I totally agree with your opinions, but not this time.

    2-2, 7.17 ERA, 21.1 IP to 17 earned runs, plus a bloated bb:K ratio of 18:19 in the post season. Thats an average of 5 IP and 4.25 ERA with 4.65 BBs and 4.75 Ks per game. So... that breaks down to a run, walk, and a K every inning pitched. Don't they have that already?

    I will give him credit that his post All Star ERA is about .20 points lower for his career and even more so over the last 3 years. However, this isn't worth what it will cost for a one year 11 million dollar rental that'll tank a couple miles from the finish line.

    Like I said before the season, watch out for Dellan. He'll be up at some point......
